Good morning peeps! How is everyone doing today? I’m doing pretty good, made it through Monday unscathed! I hope the same holds true for all of you. Today’s post is for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This week Julee Tilman has give us the round or square choice…
I went with square as I always do. I know, I need to mix it up but I really like the square card better than the round one. The base of my card is Gumball Green Card Stock. I added two different pieces of Be Of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper for the background. The flagged piece of Very Vanilla is pierced using the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool. The rectangle on top of that consists of a piece of Very Vanilla that is embossed with the new Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder* and mounted to a piece of Gumball Green. The Cherry Cobbler scalloped edge was created using the Adorning Accents Edgelits and adhered to the back before I adhered the whole thing to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used the Circles #2 Bigz Original Die to cut out the Gumball Green circle, Paper-Pierced that too and adhered it to a piece of Cherry Cobbler that I punched out with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. The greeting is from the Merry & Type Stamp Set and is stamped in Gumball Green and punched out with the Scallop Oval Punch. Two SIlver Mini Brads give it a little bling. The ornaments are from the new Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set* and are stamped in Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green. I used the coordinating Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies to cut them out and adhered then to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the new bundles that they have in the Holiday Catalog, they save you 15% when you purchase the stamp set and coordinating framelits together. Today is the last day to take advantage of the Reason to Smile Promotion and bonus $50 Host(ess) promotion. Tomorrow marks the start of the Holiday Catalog order. So many decisions! LOL! I hope that you enjoyed this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card. Thank you very much for stopping by and have yourselves a great day!
