Mojo Monday 472 - Yuletide Joy

Happy Halloween! I guess I should have posted a Halloween card today, but I'm actually writing about a Christmas card I made!

Since it's the last day of October - and the last day to get the October stamp of the month - I wanted to use the Yuletide Joy stamp set on my card for Mojo Monday this week.

Here's the sketch for this week's challenge:

I know the sketch is a square, but I'm not really into square cards, so I just adjusted it to fit the size I'm used to.

Here's my take on the sketch:

I used papers from the Swan Lake paper packet for this card, and even though many of them are fall-themed, there are always enough versatile patterns that can be used for any season or holiday!

I used the Whisper striped paper as the base layer and then cut circles out of the Glacier triangle paper and the Poppy floral print. I also cut a circle from some Fern cardstock and cut out the Poppy heart from one of the 3x4 cut-apart cards included in the Swan Lake paper packet. I included some Black shimmer ribbon and stamped the star image and the sentiment from the Yuletide Joy stamp set in Black. Finally, I added some Grey Enamel Gems to finish off the card.

I really like how it turned out, and I'm always pleased when I can use non-Christmas themed paper to make a Christmas card!

The October stamp of the month set, Yuletide Joy, has several beautiful images and sentiments for the holidays, and today is the last day to get it! It also coordinates with the retired Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. You can purchase it at its full retail price of $17.95, or you can get it for only $5.00 with a purchase of $50 or more.

Thanks for stopping by, and I'll be back tomorrow with information about Close To My Heart's great specials for November!
