Clean and Simple Mojo Monday


It's time to get our Mojo on! Today's card is inspired by the weekly Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #96, and I also played along with the Clean and Simple Cards Challenge #24, which is a color challenge this week to use yellow, orange, and turquoise.

A few handy bits of 411 on today's card:

  • To keep it clean and simple, I used score lines, instead of Designer Paper, to create the three panels in the Mojo Monday Sketch. To create the score lines, I used my bone folder and paper trimmer. The paper trimmer's "gutter" and measurements make it easy to space the lines exactly where I want them.
  • I cut out the greeting by hand with paper snips and popped it up on a dimensional snipped in half.
  • A little loop of Bermuda Bay polka dot ribbon tucked under the Pumpkin Pie cardstock adds a simple, but visually interesting, detail to the card.
  • A simple design and quick assembly qualifies this card for "Sanity Saver" status: cards that come together in 15 minutes or less. Want to see more? Click here.
  • The Circle Scissor Plus and Glass Mat make creating layered circles a breeze.
