Welcome to the Mojo Monday Blog. It is the last Monday of the month and we like to mix it up a bit and inspire you with a tall & skinny sketch! This weeks sketch was created by Julee and it is so much fun, lots of layers and angles. Have fun and be sure to share your tall & skinny card with us!
Feel free to adapt the sketch to whatever length/width fits your fancy, though. Below are a couple options for those of you who don't like to do math on a Monday morning!
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"
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 MOJO391. There is no time limit - you can always play any week at any time, but I will close the linking form on Sunday night, April 5 at 8:00pm (Mountain). That way there's no confusion which linky is the current one.
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.
