Mojo Monday 343

Good morning and welcome to Tall & Skinny week here at the Mojo Monday Blog. Julee has created this delightful sketch, another keeper for sure! The details on how to create a tall & skinny card are below, use the one that you prefer. We cannot wait to see what you create...have fun!

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. If you upload to online galleries, please also use tag/keyword MOJO343. 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, May 4, 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 MOJO343.
