“Oh What Fun” for the Holidays!

Welcome to a new Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO313).  The two circles on this week’s sketch shouted holiday ornaments to me and “Oh What Fun!” it was to stamp with the Christmas Messages stamp set (one of My Holiday Catalog 10 Favorite Things).

  • The largest Scallop Circle of the Stampin’ Up! Circles Collection Framelits Dies was used for the round card.  I folded the card stock and cropped with just a tiny bit of the die beyond the fold so that it remained intact.  An instant hinge!
  • Candy Dots add the perfect dash of color and texture to the center of the right ornament as well as the exclamation point!

  • My Envelope Punch Board (now on back order but expected to be in stock in mid-October–order NOW) helped me whip up the perfect sized envelope for this card.  Card base is approx. 4 7/8″ in diameter.
  • I used the punch board listed measurements for a 5 x 5 card (in this case, 8 1/8″ for the card stock square and 4 1/8″ for the first score).  However, for a full 5 x 5 card base, I recommend using a 8 1/4″ square for more room but keep 4 1/8″ as the first score.
  • Making a liner with the Season of Style Designer Series Paper can be quick and simple using my Envelope Punch Board Liner WOW! Tutorial.  I began with a 4″ square to line this size envelope.  Watch my video here.

  1. I just wanted to say thank you for all you share, and your beautiful projects. You have such amazing Ideas.
    I hope this doesn’t sound rude, Its not my intent to be mean, I wanted to share how disappointed I am with your “new” look for your website, its so impersonal now. Its just like all the other blogs, it makes me sad to see all the big time stampin’ up gals making their blogs into these awful looking look “professional sites” Whatever happen to If its not broke down fix it.
    Angie Judda’s blog is the same, I use to love coming to these blogs and seeing projects but its not so fun any more, they are cold and it feels like … just buy from me… give me your money… purchase Stampin’ Up.
    I know its alot of work blog, so thank for doing it everyday … I just wish that as people started getting higher and higher up in Stampin’ Up they would still stay down to earth.
    That they would stay bloggers….

  2. I came really close to using ornaments on my card. LOVE this card and the matching envelope!

  3. Carol Carriveau

    Wonderful card and coordinating envelope – so pretty – love the ribbon/bows holding the ornaments!

  4. Debbi Atkinson

    Another one out of the ball park (sorry, Rangers are playing); simply beautiful.

  5. Ooh so pretty Ms Mary , you sure know how to Wow us
    Thank you so mush !!!!
    Love that Envy …..
    Hugs Frenchie

  6. Love the card and matching envelope. What do you use for adhesive on the envelope?


  7. Great card Mary. I really like both versions, but the round one speaks to me. The directions are good, but a video would be very helpful.

  8. Now that’s the kind of card I would like to receive at Christmas. Simply stunning! The candy dot is the perfect finishing touch. Definitely CASEing this one. Thanks for the inspiration Mary. My b’day is coming up shortly and I’ve decided to take the day off from work & do nothing but stamp all day as my gift to me! This will be a card I make!

  9. I don’t think I followed the instructions you gave about using the framelits to make a hinged card–would you be able to show us on a video how you did that?

  10. Love, LOVE this festive card, Mary! It is a lot of fun… lots of holiday color and details. I must agree with Kadie about the CASE. Hugs,

  11. Love your card Mary……Think I might have to CASE it for my upcoming Holiday Tags. Thanks for sharing.

    Great card. Love the size and the shape. Thanks a bunch all your little envelope punch board tips. The liners look fabulous. 🙂

  13. Oh what fun! indeed. Love this card, this ornaments are so beautiful and fun to stamp and punch, the Mojo Monday sketch is just perfect for this cute little images. Thank you Mary for a little taste of Christmas in the Fall.
