Mojo Monday 445

Off we go into another week! I had a very productive day yesterday but when you try to get too much accomplished things car go awry! I managed to get three cards made, my laundry finished and ran some errands. I even went out to dinner with my parents to Applebee’s. However I forgot to upload my card to the Mojo Monday folder. Almost a perfectly productive day but not without a glitch! Sorry Theresa! Today I’m off to The Ink Pad again for another fun filled day! šŸ™‚

Speaking of Mojo Monday it’s time for this week’s sketch…


We haven’t had a round or square one in a while and I hardly ever make a round card so I went for it! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I cut two circles using the Simon Says Stamp Nested Circles Dies and scored the top of the back one and cut about a 1/4″ off of the bottom so it would stand up. The top is then adhered with Scor-Tape. Across the middle is a piece of Real Red that I also cut with the Circles Dies so that the edges would be perfect. The Yay! and It’s Your Day are both from the Simon Says Stamp Hello, Beautiful Photopolymer Stamp Set. The Yay! is stamped on the card front using Onyx Black. My square is a piece of paper from the Simple Stories Life in Color 6×6 Paper Pad and it’s cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares Dies. I cut another circle using the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Dies from a piece of Black 110lb and heat embossed some more images from the Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The Square, Circle and greeting are adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I’m glad that I went with the circle card, it was fun to make! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and that you will stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter your one in the gallery! Thank you for you visit today! Have a nice and easy Monday! šŸ™‚

  1. Oh, Justin, I love this fresh design of your card with all the different sentiments on it too. I love a round card. Have a magic Monday!!

  2. Hi Justin:

    Really neat the way you attached the back so the card would stand up. I have made round cards but they were never my favorite to do because they wouldn’t stand up. I don’t know why I didn’t think of cutting the bottom of the back portion. That’s O.K., you thought of it for me! LOL Thanks for sharing your method as I think round cards can really be gorgeous.

    So you get to go to Manhattan again today you lucky dog! I hope it’s as beautiful weather wise in the Village as it is here today. Enjoy every moment. Love and hugs, XXOO šŸ™‚

    1. Hello Grace!
      I had to think about what to do to the card to make it stand up! Glad that you like the card!
      It’s a lovely day here! I’m going to have the door open in the store and get some fresh air! Love and hugs to you! XOXO šŸ™‚
