Good morning, it is mojo time. Today's mojo sketch is giving you a choice, circle or square card. I personally luv both the circle and square cards. The circle cards are a little more sweet in my opinion. If you have not tried a circle card, today is a great day to do just that. Of course I used a new Verve set Loves' Flower. This set is one of those must have sets, the sweet little flowers seems so happy....hehehe. I adore the little vine of hearts, I ran my glitter pen over them. I used SEI Madeline designer paper. I added white trim down the side. I do hope you can play along with the Mojo Makers, to see all the creation head over to the Mojo Monday Blog.
Don't forget the Verve Project Parade started today, to see all the creations and play along head over to the Verve Blog.
I have been asked how I make my circle cards, so I am going to list quick instructions. I am listing two different options
-cut cardstock using the largest circle or scalloped circle nesting label
-score one of the circles on Scor Pal on the first mark(1/2 inch mark) this will be the back part of the card
-decorate the top circle
-put glue on the part above the scored part of the bottom circle and adhere the decorated circle to the bottom
-be sure to line up as much as possible so that your card when free standing is straight
-run two pieces of cardstock through the cuttlebug with a small part exposed above the nesting label
-this option makes it so you do not have to glue, it is held together by the piece that is not cut
I hope this helps, if you need anything else please let me know.
