Welcome to a new Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO313). The two circles on this week’s sketch shouted holiday ornaments to me and “Oh What Fun!” it was to stamp with the Christmas Messages stamp set (one of My Holiday Catalog 10 Favorite Things).
- Handmade holiday cards just got easier with the one, two “punch” of the Christmas Collectibles stamp set (Wood-Mount or Clear-Mount) and the coordinating Christmas Ornament Punch! Buy them together and save 15%.
- The largest Scallop Circle of the Stampin’ Up! Circles Collection Framelits Dies was used for the round card. I folded the card stock and cropped with just a tiny bit of the die beyond the fold so that it remained intact. An instant hinge!
- Candy Dots add the perfect dash of color and texture to the center of the right ornament as well as the exclamation point!
- My Envelope Punch Board (now on back order but expected to be in stock in mid-October–order NOW) helped me whip up the perfect sized envelope for this card. Card base is approx. 4 7/8″ in diameter.
- I used the punch board listed measurements for a 5 x 5 card (in this case, 8 1/8″ for the card stock square and 4 1/8″ for the first score). However, for a full 5 x 5 card base, I recommend using a 8 1/4″ square for more room but keep 4 1/8″ as the first score.
- Making a liner with the Season of Style Designer Series Paper can be quick and simple using my Envelope Punch Board Liner WOW! Tutorial. I began with a 4″ square to line this size envelope. Watch my video here.
