Mojo Monday Challenge


I would start by telling you all how busy this week has been, or how I haven't found time to craft. But, why start? Everyone has busy lives, and so let me share the good stuff :)
I am having fun participating in Mojo Monday challenges. But this week, they are celebrating their 100 anniversary! So, every day this week, they are posting a different challenge. I selected the challenge from Monday. I thought I could do something really nice with this layout.
I am participating in at least two different craft fairs this holiday season. So, I decided that I should probably start on my holiday cards. I just the love the 'vintage' look of this stamp sets: Winter Post and Heritage Holiday. This is the card I am submitting. I created the 'cracked' look by heat embossing the stamped cardstock with Ultra Thick Embossing powder 3 times. Placed the embossed card stock in the freezer for a few minutes, then bent the cold card stock. The cracks occur from the bending of the embossed, cold card stock. I think it adds to the vintage look.
