          I was in need of a card to go with a gift for a 5th grade graduation.  My church has adopted a Title I school in our city.  This is the 2nd year that I’ve been working with this lovely student and I needed a fun card to go with the beautiful new book bag with her monogrammed initials.  This is my offering using the MOJO MONDAY 296 card sketch!  All of the items are Stampin’ Up! products unless otherwise noted!
·         Stamp set(s):  Chalk Talk(new item)
·         Ink(s):  Primrose Petals, Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze(retired), Crumb Cake
·         Paper:  Bazzill Yellow CS, Primrose Petals, Whisper White, Pale Aqua(retired SU CS without name), Pennant Paper from my stash with no designer noted,
·         Dies & Embossing folders:  Sizzix SU Embosslits:  Flower Burst & Beautiful Wings; Spellbinders Beaded Circles, Sizzix SU TIEF Chevrons   
·         Embellishments/Other things of note:  Ribbon – American Crafts, Hampton Arts Glitter Glue; Basic Jewels Rhinestones, sponge dauber, sponge, Big Shot
I used the Flower Burst Embosslit to cut out the flowers in Primrose Petals and Pala Aqua CS.  I used a sponge dauber on both flowers to apply Melon Mambo Ink to the rose colored flower and Baja Breeze to the soft aqua flower.  I stamped the sentiment with Primrose Petals ink and cut and embossed it with the Beaded Circles die; I inked around the edges*with Primrose Petals Ink.  The piece of yellow cardstock was embossed with the Chevron EF and then applied Crumb Cake Ink with a sponge to bring out the texture in the paper and add depth to the card.
The really cute Pennant/Triangle paper was cut to 4” x 5.25” and mounted onto the Primrose Petals card base after affixing the two pieces of American Crafts ribbons to the front.  All this to say:  the card fits nicely in an A2 envelope and measures 4 ¼ by 5 ½.  I used the Beautiful Wings embosslit to make the butterflies to add to the card to make it a bit more playful for an 11 year old girl.  Overall, I am pleased with the outcome and hope you found it worth your while to stop by my corner of the ether world!
Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment so that I know that you’ve stopped by.
