Mojo Monday 137 Challenge

Happy Weekend Everyone!

I decided to try my hand at another Mojo Monday challenge. I really liked the layout for this week (see picture on the right) and I was inspired right away. However, it actually took me three nights to pull all of the elements together and complete the card.

I thought the panel of 4 squares was an interesting design element. Right away I was inspired to create a "film strip" type of feature for this section and incorporate it into the card.

Here's a look at the finished product:

My spin on a non-traditional Christmas card. I don't like using traditional Christmas colours, and thought the colour combo in this patterned paper was so great. And I really love how the "film strip" panel turned out.


I tried to find a square punch that I could use to make life a little easier, but I couldn't find one, so I cut out all of the squares by hand with my paper trimmer, and then punched holes down the sides. Love the finished result!

The 'merry' and 'Xmas' are heat embossed in white so that they pop on the cardstock.

These three flower brads kinda faded into the background, so I thought if I glued some sparkles on them, they might 'pop' a bit more on the card.

Overall, I really like this card. Love the colours. Love the layout. LOVE the film strip feature. What do you think?

Film strip - BRILLIANT! You really are a card-making genius. And I love how you always think outside the box, at first glance totally didn't think that was a Christmas card, but I love it! Mojo-licious card, to the max! :)
