Mojo Monday sketch. I used the layout to make a holiday card in a traditional color scheme.
My focal image is the pretty poinsettia decorated cup from Verve's Coffee Helps set. I colored it with Copic markers, then used the coordinating die from the Cup 4 All Seasons die set to cut it out. After adhering the cup to a cream panel using foam tape, I added a bit of "steam," courtesy of a taupe pearl flourish.
I matted the panel on olive green cardstock, then adhered it to a striped patterned paper panel over a piece of cranberry cardstock. The cranberry strip was edged with a bit of cream trim to go with the elegant look of the image. I stamped the "have a cup of cheer" sentiment from the Holiday Treats stamp set in olive ink on a narrow cream oval and matted the panel with an olive oval. After adhering the sentiment panel to the top of the patterned paper panel, I used foam tape to adhere a pretty red poinsettia from the Coffee Helps set to the left side of the oval. The finished panel was adhered to an olive card base.
