Mojo Monday: Darling Dots

Stampin up darling dots mojo monday 72

I was going for crisp and modern when coming up with stamps and colors for my design this week using Mojo Monday Sketch 72.  It' an unexpected combination of Tangerine Tango, Basic Gray and Whisper White . . . but I'm digging the snazzy result.

The card base is 4.25 x 5.5 in Whisper White and scored at the top.  The horizontal banner starts with Basic Gray Textured card stock, layered over Tangerine Tango and finished off with Tangerine Tango 5/8" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. 

Using stamps from Darling Dots, one of Stampin' Up!'s new Hostess Level 1 sets, I stamped both the little gift and "be happy" in Tangerine Tango.  I snipped out the gift and adhered it to Whisper White with a Stampin' Dimensional.  The sentiment was cropped out with a 1" Circle Punch, layered with a dimensional on a 1 1/4" Circle in Tangerine Tango.  The final mat is a 1 3/4" Circle in Basic Gray.

The background is a layer of Tangerine Tango followed by Basic Gray, which I shaped up with a Scallop Edge Punch.  The final detail is three prim and proper Silver Brads.
