Let’s kick off the week with a fresh Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO256) with a holiday theme. I was also inspired by a challenge presented by two members of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals, Nina Dee and Naki Rager. Their Double Dare Challenge this week was to use two neutral colors (Nina) plus the embossing technique (Naki).
- Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Bashful Blue are a crisp color combination for the holidays. They look handsome with this pattern from Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. I think this mix definitely works for a masculine card!
- BUNDLE UP! Save 15% when you purchase the Ornament Keepsake stamp set and Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies together.
- The Crumb Cake card base is 4 3/4″ square. The position of the flagged sentiment banner takes the maximum card width to 5 1/2″.
- Create a custom envelope to accommodate this 5 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ card by using the Stampin’ Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Diagonal Plate. Cut designer series paper to 8 3/4″ square. The “A” diagonal score should be at 4 1/8 and the “B” score at 3 5/8″. Finished envelope size is approx. 5 7/8″ x 5.
- See my Simply Scored Scoring Tool & Diagonal Plate Envelope Chart. Today’s card is a unique size so I haven’t added it to the chart of more standard sizes. However, there are open blanks where you can write in the measurements and scores.
