Good morning peeps. I hope everyone had a nice weekend and that you have some plans for the Superbowl tomorrow. I’m going to a friends for some food and fun. I love playing along each week with the challenges, they give you a starting point and that always makes it a little easier! This weeks Mojo Monday Sketch challenge asks you to choose between round or square:
I chose to do a 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ square card. I like this size because it fits in a standard medium envelope without extra postage. I used Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Pool Party and Calypso Coral Card Stock. The great cake image and greeting are from the Love & Laughter Set in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I stamped them both in Calypso Coral Ink. The cake is mounted on Calypso Coral Card Stock and I “edged” the greeting in Calypso Coral Ink for a little dimension. For the background I used some Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper and the Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder ( both FREE from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog with any $50 purchase each). I took a piece of Pool Party Card Stock and used the ribbon from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack (also FREE from Sale-A-Bration) and ran three pieces, two in Lucky Limeade and one in Calypso Coral, across. I punched out a piece of Calypso Coral Card Stock with the Small Heart Punch and used the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies to cut out a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper and mounted it on the ribbon with a Stampin Dimensional. I really love the colors and the way the card came out. I hope that you like it and thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great Saturday!
