Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! It is Monday which means it is time for the Mojo Sketch (below). Since this upcoming Sunday is Father's Day (don't forget that special dad in your life!), I decided to use the sketch for the card my son and I will give to my hubby.

My card base uses one of the new In Colors - Soft Suede (available July 1st). Pieces of Bashful Blue and Garden Green textured card stock were added next with a piece of Pumpkin Pie covering the seam. To dress up the Pumpkin Pie, I used a paper piercing tool and the SU mat pack to create tiny holes.

The set "And Many Mower" is so perfect for Father's Day. Especially for my husband who has recently taken up golfing. The main image was inked in Basic Black and stamped onto Whisper White. It was then water colored using ink pads in Garden Green, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Sahara Sand, and one of the New In Colors, Soft Suede. TIP: Squeeze a closed ink pad, then open to reveal the pool of ink in the lid. You can now pick up the ink using a blender pen for a soft look.

All four corners were clipped using a ticket corner punch, and it was matted onto a piece of Pumpkin Pie. Each corner was dressed up with a black mini brad, and finally the piece was adhered to another matte of Soft Suede using Stampin' Dimensionals.

A rectangle of textured Whisper White took a trip through my Big Shot with the dot pattern Background I Texturz plate. I used the reverse side to mimick the texture of a golf ball :).

The sentiment is also from And Many Mower. I popped it out using the brand new Modern Label punch (available July 1st). It was adhered using a couple SU dimensionals. Two white 5/16" Jumbo Brads dress up the bottom corner.

For the inside of the card, I used another piece of Whisper White that had been "texturized" with my Big Shot, and I popped it out using the 1 3/8" circle punch. I created a little "tee" with some Soft Suede and adhered it to some more Bashful Blue textured paper, with a little Garden Green for grass :).

I thought this was so cute already and then I see the inside and am knocked over. So clever! Hugs, Mary
