It's a Round or Square week at Mojo Monday. I really loved the sketch for this week and couldn't wait to try it out on some Father's Day cards.
I used the Passages Paper Pack to make two slightly different variations. I also used the You & Me Stamp Set, and the Pennant Alphabet. The ink colors are Cocoa and Garden Green.
The first version I made was this one. I cut out the text box and stamped a second-generation swirl image behind the sentiment. I didn't have any cute ribbon to match, so I used a strip of patterned paper mounted on Cocoa cardstock. I used the reddish/copper toned Opaques from the Cocoa collection to link the pennants.
This is my second version. I wanted to use the same basic materials in a slightly different way. This time I left the text box as a rectangle and mounted it on Cocoa cardstock. I changed the image I stamped behind the sentiment. This time I put my patterned paper ribbon in front of the text box. I arranged the pennants into a fan shape with the tiny Opaques at the corners and a larger one at the point. I stamped some extra pennants in solid and polka dot and layered them beneath the button for a sort of bow-tie look. I had a lot of fun making these cards - it was one of those times when everything fell into place. Love this sketch!
