So it’s another tall and skinny card challenge over at Mojo Monday.  I always love these type of card challenges as it pushes me to make different size cards.  My card for today measures 3.5 x 5.5 and I just love how it turned out.

Do you see that gorgeous flowered paper?!?!  The new 6×6 paper pack called “Pretty Petals” is a must have from the new catalog.  It is full of the most amazing designs and colors.  Not sure you have matching cardstock to go with this paper?  No problem, Stampin Up has included coordinating cardstock paper packs for all of their DSP this year.  I was so very excited to see this much needed addition.

I used the hostess set “A Whole Lot of Lovely” for the circle focal point in the card.  This is another must have from the catalog as I am loving all the stamps that come in this set.  

Do you ever wonder what to do with all that old DSP?  How about making a coordinating envelope for your cards.  I pulled out some retired Calypso Coral In Color DSP to make a matching envelope with the envelope punch board.  It gives this card a nice finishing touch and will light up someone’s mailbox. 

Be sure to check back in this week as I’ll be uploading my first video!!  Whoa, what?!?!  I have decided to get with the times and start making videos.  My first video will feature a project that I saw at convention and a sneak peek at new DSP that will be available in the holiday catalog that comes out in September.  

Thanks for stopping by!
