Monday Moments

Another Christmas card for my box, beginning to get on a bit of a roll now! Today's card uses the colours from Color Throwdown, the theme from CASology and the layout from Freshly Made Sketches.

I remembered this Molly Bloom's Christmas home stamp that I thought would suit the colours as well as the theme. So I got busy stamping and colouring and sparkling it up.


I embossed some vertical lines to add a bit of interest to the right hand side of the square from the layout sketch and then die cut a spiro circle to stamp the sentiment and some snowflakes. This I popped up on foam to add dimension.


I'm liking how this house reminds me of gingerbread and cookies - home is where the heart is and the way to a man's heart is supposed to be food and I've plenty of men in my family! This card is earmarked for one of them.

Supplies:
Stamps: Molly Blooms, MB0263L; SU, Endless Wishes
Inks: SU, crushed curry, pistachio pudding; Memento, potter's clay
Promarkers: terracotta, satin, tulip yellow, grey green
Die: Xcut, spiro circle

Thanks for dropping by my blog today, your visit is much apprecitaed.
