Making Spirits Bright For The Holidays – Mojo Monday 422

It’s another Mojo Monday Card Sketch Challenge, and this one screamed Stampin’ Up Among The Branches Stamp Set to me. I just recently got this set, along with the Woodland Embossing Folder, and want to make a lot of use out of it.

When I initially bought this stamp set and embossing folder, I thought it more of a Halloween set. However, I have come to realize that it is great for Fall, Thanksgiving, and Christmas too! Also, the Woodland Embossing Folder can be used a lot of other stamp sets making it extremely versatile.

The circle style sentiments in the Among The Branches stamp set coordinated perfectly with this weeks card sketch. Since I wanted to use the snowflakes in this set, I stuck with using shades of blue that would coordinate nicely color-wise.

Making Spirits Bright with the Among The Woods Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! This holiday card uses Pacific Point and Whisper White cardstock.

For the card base, I used Pacific Point Card Stock. I then used the Woodland Embossing Folder on Whisper White as my next layer. I used an older Designer Series Card Stack called Festival of Prints by Stampin’ Up! for the next layer. Over that set of layers I added a straight piece of Whisper White Organza Ribbon.

The next layer I added was a rectangular piece of Pacific Point Card Stock. I then cut a shorter piece of the Organza Ribbon, tied it, and added it to the front of the Pacific Point layer. Lastly I used the scallop edge circle punch and then added the “Making Spirits Bright” sentiment stamped in Pacific Point using the Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up. The small snowflakes were stamped in the colors of Pacific Point and Soft Sky. I used a punch from a retired Itty Bitty punch set for the snowflakes. Unfortunately, the rhinestone snowflake I added to the front of the card is retired as well. 🙁 The good thing is, that although these items are retired, they still come in handy for many projects that I make!

I really like how it turned out! I honestly believe these card sketches are making me more creative with my card making!
