It's Mojo Monday time and today's sketch challenge (MOJO194) offers endless possibilities. SNEAK PEEK ALERT! Today is also an introduction to Pocketful of Posies Designer Series Paper and coordinating sentiments from "My Friend" rubber stamp set–both available July 1 when the Stampin' Up! 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog begins.
This card is a special thank you destined for Stampin' Up! They treated me (and other qualifying demonstrators) to a recent cruise to Alaska. They have been fabulous friends and partners as I have built my Stampin' Up! business. Who better to receive a handmade card?
- The strips were cut to 7/8" wide. There are several other patterns in the Pocketful of Posies Designer Series Paper that would also be dynamite with this layout. It was so hard to choose from the modern mix of designs.
- The Fun Flowers Bigz L Die (available thru the Occasions Mini Catalog Carryover List) gets quick texture by crumpling the layers. Can it get any easier?
- The leaves were cropped with the Build a Blossom Punch (also available thru the Occasions Mini Catalog Carryover List) and crumpled.
- Isn't the font for the sentiments smashing? I added the bold "hello" to the envelope for a coordinated finish.
