Mojo 257

Posted on

Good morning peeps! Or is it?! Back to work, but it’s a short week! I had a very productive weekend and I even got to relax a little. Now I did put off some cleaning for next weekend but like they say Rome wasn’t built in a day. Now for today’s post which is for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This week Julee Tilman has given us this layered sketch to work with…

I have to admit that this card took me a little time to make. I was undecided as to what I was going to use and I went back and forth for quite a while but in the end I’m quite happy with the results. The base of the card is Early Espresso Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Primrose Petals with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The next layer is a piece of Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper that I adhered to a piece of Lucky Limeade that I edged with the Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies. The ribbon across the lower portion is Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon. I used some Sticky Strip to adhere it around the back and then mounted the whole thing to the card with SNAIL. The top layer is a piece of Primrose Petals that I stamped in Primrose Petals with the En Français Background Stamp. It’s backed by a piece of Very Vanilla and adhered to the card with Stampin Dimensionals.The flagged piece is also from the Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP pack. For the main image I stamped a snowflake from the Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set in Primrose Petals after I cut out the circle with the Circles #2 Bigz Die. I backed it with a piece of Lucky Limeade that I punched out with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. The two snow flakes at the top and bottom of the main image, stamped in Lucky Limeade, are also from the same set and are punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The flagged greeting is form the Joyous Celebration Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso. I know, you have heard it before but I am a really big fan of non-tradiotional holiday colors. I love these colors together and the sketch provides some rich layering. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card and as always thank you for stopping by. I love reading your comments so don’t forget to leave me one! Have a great day!
