It's MojoMonday time!

Yes -- I'm late...very late with this design since the sketch came out almost a week ago!! Actually, I am waaay behind on my blog entries as a whole! Life with 3 kids doesn't give me much time to dedicate to my blog... Hope you've been keeping up to date with my Facebook "Stamping With Rachel" page or you've been getting my "Newsflashes". If not, sign up for both now!

Soooo, I wanted to show you the latest Christmas card I created. It's based off the MojoMonday 264 sketch.

I also based my design off the card Mary Fish did -- I absolutely adore her work. This card is part of the Christmas Stamp-a-Stack repertoire - RSVP for this event quick as the spaces are going fast!

Ok - back to the Christmas card....

Stamping with Rach Tips & Tricks

Use dimensionals on the back of the bird to make it pop off the card.

Use the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder on the Cherry Cobbler card stock to give it a snowflake effect.

To get the cut-out at the bottom of the striped 'bookmark, use the square punch.
