Mojo Ornament Card






Happy Hump Day Peeps!!

Today's card share is made with the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This week you could pick a round or a square card. As you can see I choose round. I love round cards and had the idea right away to make my round card into an ornament. I used my nesties to cut out the scallop card and for all the circles on the card. I used the Stampin Up "Greeting Card Kids" stamp set, it is a favorite of mine and I just keep reaching for it over and over, even tho I have new rubber going UN-inked!!!

The Christmas girl is stamped with black stazon onto very vanilla card stock. I colored with my aqua painter and ink from the my ink pads. I used soft suede, cherry cobbler, more mustard, always artichoke, early espresso and crumb cake ink. I used a bit of watered down early espresso ink to splatter the image a bit.

The DS paper I used is from the Deck the Halls paper pack. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.I punched an extra large snowflake and cut it up to put behind the main image panel. I added a rhinestone to the center of the snowflake. The ornament top is made with always artichoke card stock punched with the Round Tab punch and embossed with the Vintage wall embossing folder. I added a hanger with some retired gold stretch cord.





Well, I hope you like this card/ornament, I think it turned out super duper cute!!! Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
