Mojo Monday Time Again

Its Mojo Monday time and another different layout for us to try. I thought as we are now into October and lots of my ladies are turning their thoughts to Christmas Cards (I don't want to know how many weeks are left until Christmas - whatever it is it won't be enough)
Lots of different things used in this card. I started off with Real Red Card Stock and stamped my Father Christmas from the Holly Jolly Christmas set. To make him stand out more I versamarked his coat and put a layer of clear embossing powder on it which looks great in real life but hasn't shown up one little bit in the photograph - I took several photos and the ones where it did show up made it look all patchy (lol, the bad photographer at work). The snow flakes are stamped from the Snow Swirled set in Real Red and Old Olive.
Behind that I cut one long strip of Old Olive cardstock punched it with the Scallop Punch and then ran it through the Crimper, I then eased it around the circle - it was just long enough.
Below that is a strip of real red run through the crimper.
Under that is Ski Slope DSP matted on real red card stock above and below the rectangles are three gold brads (they could be any colour the colour seems to be washed out in the photo)
The last layer is a piece of DSP paper from the Haiku set. I finished it off with Merry Christmas from the Best Yet set (level 1 Hostess) stamped with Real Red on Whisper white and punched with the oval punch and matted on real red punched with the scallop oval punch.
