Mojo 307

Posted on

Good day! So nice to see you again! It was another lovely day here on the island, sunny and warm. It was actually the hottest day of August so far and it only got up to 90. So, I’m a big Apple fan as some of you may know. One of my favorite things to do is FaceTime. It allows me to do fun things like craft with Brian King. The other night I was making my Mojo card and I cut out the Wonderful Wreath with the Circles Collection Framelits and he said aren’t you going to fussy cut that? I knew he was right but I didn’t feel like doing it. As soon as I hung up however I did just that. I;m glad that I listened!

So today’s card is for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch and the lovely Julee Tilman has given us this to work with…


The base of my card is Baked Brown Sugar and the background is a piece of Crumb Cake that I embossed with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The two triangles are from the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack. I stamped the Wonderful Wreath in Old Olive and as I mentioned I cut it out with my Paper Snips. Some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details gives the berries some sparkle. The piece of Cheery Cobbler behind it is cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits Dies and the wreath is adhered to it with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Tags 4 You Stamp Set and is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar and punched out with the Label Bracket Punch. A Brights Designer Button with some Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine and some flags in the top left complete the card. I really am glad that I listened to Brian and his sage advice! LOL! Thank you very much for visiting me today to see my Mojo Monday Sketch card for this week’s challenge. Enjoy your Thursday! 🙂

  1. Justin – I’m so glad you listened to Brian. He’s a very smart guy. His sage advice really saved this card. 🙂 Three things you added since I last saw this – the banners, the embossing folder and the twine. All three take this from really good to great. This card really whacks a punch – but it’s the fussy cut wreath that blows me away.

    • Thanks Brian! Yes, that Brian guy is pretty smart! LOL! Glad you approve of my additions too! You, oh, I mean Brian was right about the wreath! 🙂

  2. I’m so used to your non traditional colours that this card surprised me. I love a traditional green fussy cut wreath for Christmas.

  3. Gorgeous card- oh how I wish I had the patience to fussy cut! Great work Justin.

  4. Lots of great detail!

    Yep Brian was right! The fussy cut makes quite a difference. But if I am to CASE this card for our next team meeting swaps I’ll try to find a stamp with coordinating punch. I am very slow at assembly line… LOL Great card BTW, love the touch of bling on the wreath.

    Oh, I like this card! I’m getting so many ideas of colors for Christmas. Instead of the old Hum-Drum, Green and Red.I’ve been kind of edgy on non-colors for Christmas. You, brought that old Hum-Drum out of me! Thanks for the continuing inspiration!!!

  7. Fantastic card. Love the bling on the wreath. The button – it’s hidden – I had to go look 3 times before I found it. It blends so well in the picture – but I bet it looks awesome in person. I would never have thought about using baked brown sugar on a Christmas card – you did a wonderful job here.
