MOJO207 and Pines & Poinsettias


Greetings, all! Today I have a Christmas card to share with you which I designed for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This is the first time I am trying out the new Pines & Poinsettias stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. It's a fun set to work with, and I especially like the stamp I used for the background, with its curvy holly leaves.


The Pines & Poinsettias stamp set coordinates perfectly with the Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Series Paper. Holly Berry Bouquet is a specialty paper, with beautiful glittery designs on one side, such as the sparkly red dots I used in this card. My photos didn't capture the sparkle very well, but trust me, it's there!


I also used the new Snow Burst Embossing Folder on the Real Red layer. The focal image was colored with markers and stamped, then I went over the images with marker again to give a nice, rich color.
