Stacked Thoughts

Hi there!  Hope your weekend is going well!  We've been getting the house ready for my husband's sister and brother-in-law to arrive tomorrow, but I did manage to sneak in some time to finish a card for Mojo Monday that I started last night. It's time for Tall and Skinny this week - love it!

I started by using a piece of Stacked with Love designer paper (those little hearts are so cute!) that was adhered on top of a slightly smaller piece of card stock, then layered on top a horizontal piece of embossed Smoky Slate.  I found a piece of long-retired Stampin' Up! black velveteen ribbon to anchor the white rectangle.

The flower was stamped three times, with the base punched out then the next two smaller layers hand cut with my paper snips. Because of the tail of the "y", I had to shift the flower to the side opposite of the sketch.

Since the card is skinny (3.75"), the flower and sentiment banner could hang off their respective edges and still fit into a regular A2 envelope.  The card base is the new thick Whisper White card stock, which I find wonderfully sturdy and perfect for the bottom layer.

Thanks for looking today!  Be sure to use the link above to check out all the great inspiration and join in too - there's still time.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
