Mojo 261

Morning everyone! Did we all make it through Monday ok? I had card class last night which is always a good time. My daughter comes with me and Sandy and the other ladies are awesome. We always have a good laugh, it’s my favorite Monday of the month! Today’s post is for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This week we have this sketch provided by Julee Tilman…

I have been trying to incorporate some different materials into my cards lately and today I used some burlap. The base of the card is Early Espresso Card Stock. I kept the background simple, just a piece of Crumb Cake with the greeting stamped in Early Espresso from the Chock Full of Cheer Stamp Set in the upper right corner. The large Early Espresso circle is cut out with the retired Circle Scissor Pro. On top of that is a piece of Cherry Cobbler cut out with the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlits Die. The left side is cut off and it is adhered to the card with SNAIL. For the flagged element I used a piece of Island Indigo and some Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper. Next, I adhered a piece of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon around the back of the Crumb Cake piece with some Sticky Strip and adhered the whole panel to the card. I punched a piece of Island Indigo out with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and used the Circles #2 Bigz Die to cut out a piece of burlap and adhered it to the scallop circle with more Sticky Strip. The ornament, from the Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set, is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and I cut it out with the Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies. Both are then adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the bow I used more Cherry Cobbler Seam Biding Ribbon and the fork method to tie it, a Mini Glue Dot holds it in place. I love the layers and the burlap gives it a little unexpected texture. I hope that you enjoyed this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card. Thanks you for spending some time with me today, I hope the rest of your day is great!
