Card for Mojo Monday and Lindsay's Stamp Stuff


For today's card, I decided to use the sketch from Mojo Monday for this week, and the Magnolia #2 digistamp from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. I have had this image colored for awhile, just waiting for inspiration to strike...then I thought about these beautiful papers from Basic Grey's Wisteria line... and I think they go together beautifully. And of course, being the southern girl that I am, magnolias are near and dear to my heart. I started with a plum colored cardstock base, cut the card front rectangle from the Wisteria paper, cut a square of cornflower blue cardstock, rounded the edges with a Fiskars corner rounder squeeze punch, taped it to the "leaf texture" Fiskars texture plate, rubbed with the texturing tool, flipped it over and applied it to the card. I added the digistamped image with pop dots, used my Martha Stewart simple scallop punch to make 3 borders from cardstock and iridescent vellum, and layered them on top of one another. I tied a lavender satin ribbon around the card front and then glued it to the card base. I haven't decided what occasion to use it for yet...so I will add the sentiment when I decide. Maybe a birthday or thank you card?
Well, now it's time for you to head over to Lindsay's blog (she may have a freebie for you there;-) ), and then to the other designer's blogs from there! Thanks for stopping by!
