Very Merry Mojo

Good Morning Friends!

I was up a little early because I fell asleep early last night after a turkey dinner I made yesterday. :D I was intrigued by the mojo monday sketch this morning and I'm in a minimalistic mood.. So instead of making a larger square card, I made a smaller one 4 1/4" square. Clean and simple, quick and cute.

My friend Patti sent me a 4 1/4" square card not too long ago and I really have to say, I love them! When you go to mail them, you need to use a standard medium envelope, if you put them in a square envelope, the post office will charge you extra postage. :D

So for my card today, I started with some retired polka dot ribbon that I scored for $1.99 on the stampin up clearance rack! What a steal/deal!

Next, I added a piece of very vanilla cut to 3 x 2" then I took an exacto blade and made a swirly edge. I embossed this piece with the petals a plenty die from stampin up.

Then I cut a piece of red to 1 3/4" x 3 3/4" and embossed again, this time I used the vintage embossing folder.

I have my stamp club this week, and know that the tag set is on sale, so I want to play with that and maybe design some cards around what's on sale. :D (love that!)

I used the tag punch as my focal point and used a few rhinestone brads for santa's shirt, and used a 1/16" hole punch to make sure they were straight. I used smootch paint in silver for santa's belt and popped that up with some dimensionals. Although the sketch suggested 3 brads in the corner, I used two self adhesive bling, because there were only spots for two on santa's coat, and I wanted to mimic what I had already done.

I hope you have a wonderful week! I certainly enjoyed my Monday morning mojo stretch.
Rubbah hugs,
