Card A Day Blog: Just because

Hi everyone, I'm here with my entry for this week for the Card A Day Blog. This weeks theme is " Just Because".


I got my card idea from the latest sketch from Mojo Monday.


 


To make my card, I first started with a 5.50" x 4.25" card base. I then cut out a piece of solid medium green card stock, just slightly smaller than my card front, and attached it to the front of the card. 


For the larger side panel, I used a piece of lighter green paper cut to 2.25" x 5" and adhered a piece of 2" x 4.75" patterned paper to the top. I then took two pieces of brown and white baker's twine, and wrapped them around the panel length wise, and tied them in a bow about 1.25" below the top of the panel, then I adhered the panel to the left side of of the card.


 I stamped my sentiment on a piece of the darker green paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, aged mahogany, cut it out, and attached it so just the end of it is sticking up under the baker's twine.


For my little squares to the right side of the card, I cut out 3, 1.25" squares of the light green card stock, and inked the edges with green ink. On the top of the squares, I used the flower shaped Spellbinders Ribbon Buckles die, cut out with the darker green card stock, laced some of the brown and white baker's twine, and wrapped it around the squares. I used dimensional tape to mount the squares to the right side of the card.


Thank you for stopping by, I hope you like my newest creation, and if you get the chance, please leave me a comment. As always, I love to hear what people think. Be sure to enter our monthly challenge for a chance to win a wonderful prize!
