Canada Post's strike continues! ARGH!! The strike has impacted me, as a greeting card maker. I have a stack of cards for various occasions to be mailed out but I cannot until the strike ends. The word is that the strike will (HOPEFULLY!) be resolved by the end of this week. In defiance of the strike, I used these stamps, from Papertrey Ink to create a snail mail for you card.
This week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge is the layout below and that which I used for my card. I used a Martha Stewart design paper stack (I think it was Martha Stewart...) for the background paper which matched so well with my Stampin' Up! cardstock in a pail orange. I also had coordinating grosgrain ribbons in the green and orange. I added a little machine stitching and found a button in my button jar to tie a piece of bakers twine to and attach to the punched doily at the top. The doily punch is my new punch from Stampin' Up! I think I'm going to have a lot of fun using this punch!
This was a quick card to make an assemble. I just hope the strike ends soon so I can resume sending snail mail cards.
Until next time,
