It's MOJO MONDAY Sketch Challenge time again. This week's sketch was a simple design that lends itself well to that "spur of the moment" card. You could put almost anything into those four little frames.
As it's nearing the end of the school year and I'm thinking about Teacher gifts and thank you cards, I felt this layout would work perfectly for a Teacher Appreciation Card.
Usually I would stamp something in each of those squares, but for this challenge, I decided to simply add paper to the frames and chose Story Time Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! because the images went so well with my theme. This beautiful paper be retiring at the end of May.
Here's is my card design:
Ink: Basic Black
Stamp Set: Mixed Medley
Cardstock: Red Riding Hood, So Saffron
Accessories: Red Riding Hood Red ruffled ribbon, Soda Pop Top, 3/4" and 1" Circle punches, Big Shot Machine, Adhesive, Dimensionals.
|Instead of adding a bow to my ribbon as shown in the sketch, I decided to add a Soda Pop Top which I flattened in my Big Shot Machine. I stamped the "for you" sentiment from the Mixed Medley stamp set in Basic Black ink and punched it out with a 3/4" circle punch. This sentiment was then popped up on a dimensional and added to the center of a 1" circle of so saffron cardstock. I glued these pieces to the Soda Pop Top with Crystal Effects. The rippled ribbon in Red Riding Hood is retired but I liked the effect it creates on this card.|
