Merged


Merging Mo's images are a work in progress and takes quite a bit of time but at least when you've done it you just save it to use next time. I'm still not convinced I've made Victoria Caroling smaller enough for the Winter's Door but I couldn't make her smaller for layering.
To start with I wasn't keen on my card since Mr Mojo left the building but has since grown on me. The bit of tartan is from LOTV paper pack and once again I used the sizzix diamond folder. The lamp is a die from Marianne and the holly is a Martha Stewart punch, finished with ribbon and pearls for the holly berries and for the folder.
The snow is Flowersoft and Fun Flock, I mix a bit of each together, it works that the fun flock covers what the flowersoft doesn't.
I don't make cards everyday but when I do I like to make at least two but yesterday I only managed one, gave myself loads of cutting out and layering plus I have a cross-stitch project that is now down to outlining stitching, so I'm not at the stage where it keeps calling me to finish.
