Hello Mojo!

It is Monday, and you know what that means! Mojo Monday time! I didn't stick exactly to the sketch, I turned the card lengthwise and re-arranged a couple of elements: This sketch gave me the perfect opportunity to use my Circle Scissor Plus, a fantastic tool for making nested circles up to 6".
This tool is a little tricky to get used to at first, but I have all the insider tips for you to make perfect circles every time:
  • use a little dotto on your paper to hold it in place while you cut your circles
  • spin the wheel around over your paper before cutting to make sure your placement fits the size of circle you want to cut
  • the glass mat is an excellent surface to cut on

Today's card is for my cousin, I'm attending her baby shower on Thursday, and I'm so excited for her! It's always fun to have a new baby in the family. When I started to work on a card for her, Tall Tales DSP came to mind. I knew as soon as I saw the NEW Tall Tales Designer Series Paper it was going to be one of my favorite DSP packages. It's so versatile, from adorable animal prints, to cute florals, and masculine stripes, this paper really goes the extra mile!

The photo corners punch makes adding a subtle "something" to corners a snap. I added a chocolate chip photo corner in the upper left side of the card.

I also added some jumbo brads from the Vanilla Styled Hodgepodge Hardware set to the lower right corner of the card. I just love them! I'm not sure it shows in the photo, but they have engraved stars in the centers of the brads. So fun!

Adorable baby card! Love the fact that you used earth tones instead of the traditional blue.
