A Little Christmas Mojo

It is almost that time of year! Christmas is just around the corner! Can you believe it? Do you have all your cards made yet? I certainly don't. I decided to use he MojoMonday Sketch Challenge 106 to get another one out of the way. Plus, I got to use my brand newly released Papertrey Ink stamp set Peaceful Poinsettia & Signature Christmas. YIPPEE! NEW TOYS!!!

Recipe:
Card Base: SU Ruby Red 5 1/2 X 4 1/4
Card front: SU Kraft 5 1/4 X 4 (made my own DP, sortof, with PTI Peaceful Poinsettia stamped in Sahara Sand)
Other Paper used: Mellow Moss, Ruby Red DP, Kraft DP, Ruby Red, unknown cream, & white
Inks used: Ruby Red, Sahara Sand, Basic Gray
Stamp Sets: PTI Peaceful Poinsettia, Signature Christmas - I was VERY excited to discover that several of these stamps fit PERFECTLY in my SU oval punch and then I layered it on Ruby Red cardstock punched out with SU scallop oval after sponging edges.

I stamped the outline Poinsettia in Basic Gray and then the solid image in Ruby Red. Then I cut it out and popped it up on a stamped solid image in Ruby red. I put a little bling in the middle! The leaves are stamped in Mellow Moss.

I used Cricut Cartridge Fabulous Finds to cut out the squares at 2 1/4, 2 1/2, & 2 3/4 and the square rounded piece at 2" square in Ruby Red.

The ribbon is SU Mellow Moss.

I am going to make some more of these b/c I think it turned out pretty good. However, I will probably leave off some of the extra Mojo layers!!!

I started off this year making 10 Christmas cards a month and got about 40 done. I still need about 30-50. I didn't send out as many cards last year and probably need to do better this year.
How many cards do you still need?
