Mojo Monday - 25th Anniversary card

It feels like I've been away for such a long time from my craft table but really it was only about four days.  I'm grateful that Jingle Belles' Peace on Earth - re-use/recycle challenge featured my Christmas card.  It was my first time joining in and I had fun using scraps and parts of old Christmas cards.

Today I took time to play along with Mojo Monday and created a 25th anniversary card.  This week's challenge is the monthly Mojo Madness sketch and the winner could receive a set of Verve stamps.  I'm just slowly buying and getting into stamping so unfortunately I don't have any Verve stamps yet.  I've added them to my Mother's Day wish list so we'll see what happens on Sunday.

Here is this week's sketch - Mojo Monday 240

And here is my interpretation - lots of silver, white and some bling!

Card recipe
Paper - Making Memories Wedding and aluminium foil glued on scrap cardstock
Cricut cuts: silver circle is Ornamental Iron 2 (two half circles welded) and Blackletter for "25"
White circle is Spellbinders die
All other shapes were cut by hand
Pearl embellishment, small silk flower and silver/white ribbon

I strive to have at least one Cricut image on my cards as I've invested in this tool and there are so many wonderful images to explore on each cartridge.  I don't have a favourite yet but I do like the intricate cuts on Ornamental Iron.

Thanks for dropping by and of course I always appreciate your comments!

Enjoy your week!


  1. Amazing. Intricate. Perfect for the 25th anniversary celebration!
