Hi friends! It's the final Monday of the month and that means it's time to bring on my favorite kind of Mojo sketch... round or square. This month's Mojo 291 sketch is so trendy and fun with layered banners. I can't wait to see what everyone makes!
For my card, I chose these gorgeous papers from Authentique. Mark got them as part of my Easter basket and I seriously have just flipped through the pad over and over again! It just makes me happy, happy, happy! I cut all of the banners by hand, just laying strips of paper in a pile, then marking a place in the center 1/2" from the bottom and cutting to that mark from each end on all the papers at once. Then I cut the black mat strips and layered the papers on and eyeballed the cut.
The this wonderful life sentiment is from the Remember This and is stamped into the mini curvy bookplate stamp from Borderline and cut and matted with the coordinating Mini Bookplate Die Set. The LOVE sentiment is from Text Objects and I stamped it onto a die cut from the Flag It Die Set and hand cut the mat. The ribbon is some super fun crinkly crepe ribbon that we'll be introducing in the Verve Store with our May 10 release. I also pulled out the From the Heart Die Set and layered them on for some fun accents. The base is embossed with a polka dot embossing folder, then I rounded the bottom corners and this 5" square card was finished. Oh, and I added two little heart rhinestones for a bit of bling (even though they don't look too heart shaped in the pic)!
Okay, that's all for this card. I'm also wrapping up the April Diva Dare over on the Verve blog with a super colorful creation drawing on Marisa and Charmaine's styles today. So be sure to head over there to see my full card and leave some comments on our series of posts for a chance to win! Then play along with the challenge before Wednesday for another chance at some shiny new Verve!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous start to your week! I'm starting my week off with coffee and a little crafty shopping with a friend this morning. Woohoo!
