Congratulations sketch


Here is my card for Mojo Monday sketch #79. I made this card for a friend who constantly amazes me - she's a wonderful lady and just accomplished some great things. (I love getting those little notes from friends and family that reminds me how many people care about me and what I'm doing - so I like to remind the important people in my life how amazing they are.)

I started with a card base of Kiwi Kiss Textured card stock. The textured card stock is a little lighter weight than our regular card stock, however, it holds its own for a card base just perfectly. The next layer is Pacific Point card stock with a piece of pattern paper from Good Morning Sunshine. I used the Scallop Border Punch along the bottom of the pattern paper. The longer paper strip of owls are from that same package, in fact they are the reverse side print. I layered the owls onto a mat of Basic Black card stock and then wrapped it all with a piece of Kiwi Kiss Striped Ribbon.

Instead of tying a knot in the ribbon, I used this Baja Breeze Corduroy Button, which has prongs on the back just like a brad. (These Baja Breeze Corduroy Buttons will be available in the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog on April 1st.) I wrapped the prong legs around the ribbon and secured it in a hole punched through the Pacific Point card front. The banner is a piece of Whisper White card stock layered onto a Kiwi Kiss card stock mat and the ends are punched with the arrow from the My Way Punch. I placed a Stampin' Dimensional under the end of it to give it a little curve. I stamped the sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration set (FREE!) Congrats in Basic Black ink.

TIP: Remember that you can earn any of the SAB products FREE with every $50 order placed before March 31st.

For the inside of this card, I layered a piece of Pacific Point card stock, punched with the Scallop Border Punch behind the card liner of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the Congratulations sentiment from the SAB Congrats set in Basic Black ink.

Ink: Basic Black
Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black, Pacific Point, Whisper White, Good Morning Sunshine DSP
