~Finding my Mojo~

tnt-cherry-on-top.jpg  Ok, so I’m having a little trouble with my mojo since the gathering.  My head is still spinning with all the great ideas I saw.   So, I decided that instead of doing things that are pressing me (I have some deadlines looming), that I would just do something for fun this morning and hope my mojo came along with me.

I’ve been toying (haha) around with this idea for a couple days…. and came up with this little “Tri-fold” type card that can hold a bevy of goodies.  As you can see in the pic below, there is a place to tuck a business card or even perhaps a gift card.

Now, I know someone is going to ask for measurements, so I came prepared today.  As I said, I started with a regular A2 size card (cut longways) in Real Red.  I cut the designer paper as follows:

I sure hope my mojo sticks around.. it’s been touch and go this morning and I really need to get some work done!

Here’s my deets:

Stamps: Tart and Tangy (SU!); Cherry on top sentiment by Hambo (

Colors:  Real Red, Bliss Blue, Summer Picnic DP

Ink: Real Red and Garden green SU! markers (huff stampin’!); Craft White

Accessories:  Ribbon, oval punch, circle punch, scallop punch, dimensionals

TFL!~ and have a blessed day!

    Well, your mojo is definitely still there. Very cute job on the card – love all the little details that make it you – punched out oval with sentiment, extra layers (of course!), cherries on the inside to match the ones on the outside, matted blue paper on the inside on both sides, need I go on!! Love the flap for the gift card too. Glad you decided to play around with something fun 🙂
