Starry Topiary

Here's my Christmas card for this week and I used the Mojo Monday Sketch #94 for the layout. This sweet starry topiary is just one of the four images in this set from Sunshine Designs. I picked up these stamps when I was in Calgary in March...I'm always on the look out for great new Christmas stamps now that I'm making one card a week all year long.

I stamped the image twice with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White. I coloured the image with copics then cut out the star and popped it for dimension. The image is cut out with circle Nestabilities and layered onto a scallop circle of kiwi kiss then I added some red Stickles to the berries. The sentiment is by AMuse.

Onto the white card base I layered some real red, which I ran through my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I added a white strip of cardstock and outlined it with red Stickles. The yellow rectangle is Prism Sunflowers Medium. The patterned paper is from my stash and I have no idea which company it came from...I bought it as a little 4x4 pad and it's called Winter Soulstice, but that's all I know, sorry. I do like the bright, happy colours though. I added two ribbon loops under the sentiment panel to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by!

Karen, I love this latest Xmas card! That star is soooo cute! I'm really like that paper you put the sentiment on too and how you added stickles to that white strip. I don't think I could have put it on that straight and perfect. You have such great taste for colors for Xmas cards. I'm always so traditional when it comes to them. I've been sitting here debating over whether I should try to do a Xmas card with that Mojo sketch too. You may have just tipped the scale in favor of that:))

Karen, I love this Christmas card...what a great idea to make a card/week...I should really do that...well, maybe it would be 2 cards/week for me now that we are 1/2way through the year, lol! The card is adorable; love the ribbon tabs and how you coloured your image(Sunshine Designs has great images, don't they?!). Funny you posted about the DP (one of my favs); it's by Rubber Soul http://rubbersoul.myshopify.com/collections/paper-products/products/4x4-winter-soulstice-collection
Have a great day and TFS! Tinla
