I don't know why Ms. Mojo is so moody but she's been on a roll the last couple of days so I have two cards to show you tonight. The first is for Merry Monday. I love being able to get some of my Christmas cards done although I sure don't need as many as some of you do. I may be able to skip some if old Ms M doesn't come through. The challenge is to use only gray, red and white.
The photo makes it look like there's a kraft border around the card but that just the background. I used CASual Fri-Dies to cut the branches in dark gray, adding some berries (?) with white enamel accents. I keep thinking it needs something else but I don't know what. It sat on my desk for a couple of days until something hit me, but nothing did.
The next card I'm a little more satisfied with. It's for Capture the Moment's Make it Monday - DIY Cover Plate.
I left the Building Blocks dies in sets of two and lined them up diagonally across the card. A piece of patterned paper that had a wash of color looked great behind the openings that are stamped with a phrase from the set. To emphasis the "sparkle" I embossed the word with sparkle powder and added a few sequins - a first for me. Yes, you heard me. I was a sequin virgin. I'm still not totally into this trend but they worked great on this card.
Thanks for stopping by. I'll have a couple more cards tomorrow so please come back.
