I’m definitely behind on creating Christmas cards. Since it is now November, I’ll be focusing on Christmas cards for the next while. This week’s Mojo Monday sketch (http://mojomonday.blogspot.ca/) is a perfect opportunity. Here is a copy of the Mojo265 sketch:
Here is my version:
I tried to add an embellishment like the sketch but I couldn’t find anything that looked right to me so I left it off. I also decided to make an A2 size card instead of a square – just a personal preference of mine.
The stamp set is Ornament Keepsakes – it’s a great collection of ornaments. And the thing that makes this set a favourite of mine even though this is my first time using it is the fact that there are matching framelits. Makes it so easy to cut out the ornaments! A little bit of bling and some baker’s twine and you have a perfect ornament to add to a card.
I modified the design to create a second card:
I really like the addition of the faux stitching around the Very Vanilla layer. I decided to omit on of the mats behind the ornament to better accommodate the faux stitching. If I were to make this card over again, I would use Old Olive for the mat instead of River Rock to make it pop. I think that if I were to do this, I would like the second card better. Which one do you like?
Thanks for stopping by!
