Mojo Monday 330

Happy Monday mojo fans!  It's the last Monday of the month and for the last few years we've been featuring Round or Square cards at the end of each month. For the new year we've decided to change things up and make the last Monday of the month a Tall & Skinny week, with no diets needed....lol. Our design team has featured two different ways to achieve a tall & skinny card today. 

The first size is 3.5 x 5.5" and fits a regular A2 envelope with a little room left over to let something (like the circle in this sketch) hang off the 3.5" side. You can use either of the following measurements, depending on where you want your fold.

  • 3.5 x 11" cut of cardstock, score long side at 5.5"
  • 5.5 x 7" cut of cardstock, score long side at 3.5"
For a little more skinny, you can try a 3.5 x 6" card to fit a regular No. 6 3/4 envelope (the ones that are about the size of a personal check).  Use either of the following measurements, depending on where you want your fold.
  • 3.5 x 12" cut of cardstock, score long side at 6"
  • 6 x 7" cut of cardstock, score long side at 3.5"

Feel free to adapt the sketch to whatever length/width fits your fancy, though.  Those are just a couple options for those of you who don't like to do math on a Monday morning!

To play along, make a project using the provided sketch and upload it to your blog or online gallery. Then leave a link to your project using the linky widget at the bottom of this post. Please use a direct link to your Mojo post and not just your blog.

Verve stamps are NOT required to participate, and you can enter as many times as you want.  As always, if you don't have a particular shape, feel free to substitute.

There is no time limit - you can always play any week at any time, but I will close the linking form on Sunday night, February 2, at 8:00pm (Mountain). That way there's no confusion which linky is the current one. If you upload to online galleries, please use keyword/tag MOJO330.

For inspiration using this week's sketch, please visit our design team's blogs, which are the first 7 thumbnails on this week's linky list:
