A Day to Remember

Hi friends!  It's Monday again and time for a brand new Mojo Monday sketch.  This week is tall & skinny week, so I made a 3.5" x 5.5" card (that way it still fits in a regular A2 envelope).



I had Memorial Day on my mind, so picked out the Sunny Days set to make a little remembrance card.  The two fringe flowers are stamped in cherry cobbler ink on cream, then sponged with fired brick and barn door distress ink.  I then punched them out with a 1" and 1-3/8" circle punch, inked the edges with walnut stain and snipped every few lines or so, to give some dimension.  The center piece is a 3/4" circle punch sponged with fossilized amber, then doodled with a chocolate chip marker, sponged with walnut stain ink and then accented with thee white gel pen dots.

The sentiment is stamped onto a circle in early espresso ink, then I sponged around the edges with antique linen and walnut stain, adding a bit of Tim Holtz tissue tape to the side for a little interest.  The leaves are stamped in mossy meadow and then cut out with the coordinating Leafy Sprigs Die Set.  I added a banner behind cut from island indigo using the Banner Bundle Die Set and then layered some wide striped ribbon and some filmstrip ribbon for my other panels.

The cream panel is embossed with the chicken wire embossing folder and also inked up with some antique linen and walnut stain ink before adding it to my card base.

That's all on the card front.  If you're in the States I hope you're enjoying the long weekend.  If you haven't checked it out yet, be sure to head on over to Verve to pick up some deals during our Memorial Day sale.  Use offer code MEM25 at checkout for 25% off your purchase through May 26, 2015.
