Festival of Trees MOJO360


Today's card was made using this week's Mojo Monday sketch, MOJO360. I made it on Monday, but this is the first chance I've had to post it. I'm having fun making cards with my new Holiday Catalog sets. This is the first card that I've made with my Festival of Trees set. It's the first time I've used my Endless Wishes set, too, which was used for the greeting. You'll be able to order these great Holiday Catalog products beginning tomorrow!

I don't plan to use this card in any of my camps, so I'm going to share the dimensions and instructions on how to make it. The card base is made with a 7" x 5-1/2" piece of Mossy Meadow card stock folded in half.

 I then cut out a 3-1/4" x 5-1/4" piece of Baked Brown Sugar card stock and a 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece of Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). I then attached the DSP to the left side of the Baked Brown Sugar piece. Cut a 2-3/4" x 4-1/2" piece of Early Espresso card stock, and run it through the Big Shot with the Stylish Stripes folder. Then, die-cut an oval out of a 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" piece of Very Vanilla card stock with the third-smallest die from the Ovals Collection Framelits. Stamp "Merry Christmas" from the Endless Wishes stamp set onto the top of the oval using Cherry Cobbler ink. Attach the oval to the middle of the Early Espresso piece, and then attach it to the center of the Baked Brown Sugar/DSP piece. Cut a 5" piece of Mossy Meadow Stitched Satin ribbon, and wrap it around the piece, placing it near the bottom of the oval, and attaching the ribbon ends to the back of the piece. Then, attach it to the Mossy Meadow card base.

Stamp the pine tree stamp from the Festival of Trees stamp set onto a scrap piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock with Mossy Meadow ink. Punch it out with the Tree Punch. Stamp the star stamp from the same set onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla card stock with Crushed Curry ink. Then, punch it out with the small star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, and attach it to the top of the tree with a Glue Dot. Then, attach the tree onto the bottom left side of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

To finish the card, stamp the cardinal stamp from the same stamp set using Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry ink.  Since the stamp is photopolymer, I was able to see through the stamp to ink it up with the two ink pads. I lined the edge of the Cherry Cobbler ink pad just under the beak to ink the body, and then lined the beak with the edge of the Crushed Curry ink pad. Then, I stamped it just above the ribbon. Then, I attached one of the largest Cherry Cobbler button from the Regals Designer Buttons to the bottom right corner of the Early Espresso card stock with a Glue Dot.  That's it!
