It's Monday and that means there's another great Mojo Monday sketch to try. I like to play along whenever I get the chance.
I *love* this sentiment. I think it works great for a thank you card, so I added the "thanks" from the Hello You Thinlits dies. Whenever you cut out a small, intricate design like the word "thanks," it's always a good idea to use a piece of wax paper to help get the card stock out of the thinlit once it's cut. I layered it in the wrong order and had to delicately pry my card stock out of the thinlit. So please learn from my mistake. The correct order is:
- cutting plate
- card stock
- wax paper
- cutting plate
Then run it through the Big Shot and the card stock will easily come out of the thinlit.
Once I stamped the sentiment, I cut it out using the Circle Framelits. I wanted to layer the sentiment on a larger circle, but the next largest circle in the Framelits set was too large. So I used my 2" Circle Punch instead. It was exactly the width I was looking for. I added dimensionals onto the back of the Circles and attached it to the piece of Painted Blooms DSP.
I wanted to focus on the Blackberry Bliss color throughout the card, so I used some of the Blackberry Bliss Satin Ribbon below the sentiment. I filled the space below the ribbon with some Blackberry Bliss flowers with Candy Dots centers.
It's a little difficult to see in the photo, but I used the Spring Flowers Embossing Folder on the Blushing Bride layer.
The inside of the card is very simple. I added a small piece of Blushing Bride card stock that I also embossed with the Spring Flowers Embossing Folder. I finished it off with another piece of Blackberry Bliss ribbon to help tie it in with the front of the card.
