A Blue Christmas
Jolly Holiday Gift Card Holder

Mojo Monday Christmas

Hi there

I haven't done any Mojo Monday Sketches for a while, so when I saw  Sketch 168 I took the opportunity to create this Christmas card. You are probably totally over Christmas cards by now, but I still need to make a few more (and to  start sending them as well!). 

I'm still loving the Christmas Cocoa DSP that was in a recent promotion bundle.  The combination of Real Red and Soft Suede give a lovely richness and a contemporary twist to Christmas. The panel behind the tree is dazzling diamonds glitter on Jac paper. This stuff is fabulous with glitter or flock as it has a really high tack and keeps the glitter in place and not all over your project. The tree was hand cut with a ruler and craft knife.

I have also been making some treats as gifts for friends and I used the same colours for the bag toppers. The one on the left is a gorgeous rich Rocky Road made from a recipe from the lovely Chris Henderson and the other is classic sugar topped shortbread.

The glittery background behind the tree looks fabulous, that rocky road looks pretty good too


Very nice card. Love the bag toppers.


I love your mojo card - such a simple design yet very effective!
