The last week of the month is always a round or square challenge on the Mojo Monday blog. You can make your own envelopes to fit custom-sized cards using the Stampin’ Up! Diagonal Scoring Plate. Play along with us – it’s open to everyone, and I’d love to see your creations. 🙂 Here’s the sketch this week:
I opted for the square and a Christmas theme – my favorite holiday!
I used the Handmade Holidays Stitched Felt ornaments from the current Holiday Catalog. These would be great for a quick gift embellishment, but I also love the look of it on a card.
Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper is available through the Annual Catalog and uses traditional Christmas colors – red and green. Because the DSP has Very Vanilla instead of Whisper White in it, I added a layer of Whisper White underneath the diamond to incorporate the color. The Gumball Green paper strip is embossed with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder and Big Shot.
This ribbon is on special this month – for every $40 you spend (before tax and shipping), you’ll receive a free spool of 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon (available in the new InColors). It is incredibly easy to work with and coordinates perfectly with Christmas. (!) I finished off the card with a Designer Ribbon Slide and two small “Merry” tags.
