I hope your Monday has started the week off right! Mine certainly has; with a new yoga mat, commitment to exercise every day (oh boy…), and a Mojo Monday contest to enter, this week started at full speed. Whew!
So, every Monday one of my favorite blogs posts a new sketch of a card layout. It’s a really great way to get my mojo going (get it!?) if I’m feeling stuck and need some inspiration. Anyway, the first Monday of each month card makers everywhere have a chance to enter their creations (based on that week’s sketch) and win a set of stamps! Here’s this week’s layout:
Fortunately, you can use different shapes, borders, etc., so it was pretty easy to make this into a Christmas card!
Here’s what I came up with:
The card measures 5″ x 6.5″ and features poinsettias that I made using my various flower punches. The sentiment and flowers are popped up over cream, red and green paper from a Christmas pad by K&Company, and to finish off the look I used my sewing machine to do some decorative stitching. Overall, I’m really pleased with the way this card turned out! Here are a couple more pictures for your enjoyment… 🙂
There are a couple slip-ups in the stitching which drive my perfectionist self nuts, but oh well! Let me know what you think, and keep having a great day 🙂
