You Make Me Happy Mojo Monday!

I hope today’s card makes you happy as well!  Isn’t this a sweet sentiment from Stampin’ Up! See Ya Later stamp set (a Sale-A-Bration exclusive)?  I flipped this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch (MOJO339) ninety degrees so that I could play with the oval and sentiment the “long” way.


  • Quick and easy!  The “cloud” was punched from my Stampin’ Up! Cupcake Builder Punch.  The “sun” was cropped using the smallest of my Starburst Framelits Dies.  The cloud is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • I used a Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker (part of the Neutrals Collection) to color the sentiment, excluding the cloud and sun that are part of the stamp image.
  • A trio of Basic Gray Candy Dots balances the card.
  • The card base measures 6 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.  To create a custom-sized envelope for this card, I used the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board.

  • And the liner?  Watch my 1 Minute to WOW Tutorial on how to use the Envelope Punch Board to create the perfectly sized custom liner.  For this size envelope, I began with a 4 3/4″ square of “I Am Me” Designer Series Paper.
