Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge Blog Hop #3 – Sweet & Mint

SSSC Header

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge!  We’re a so excited to be sharing this hop with you. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!®  Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

Today’s sketch was designed by very talented Angelina from Intatwyne Designs. I really like the simplicity of this design.


My first thought about this  sketch was that it’s sweet. So is my today’s card: sweet & mint 😉 I absolutely love 2015 – 2017 In Colors. But Mint Macaron is definitely my favourite one.

Sweet & Mint

Base of my card is Mint Macaron scored at 4-1/4″ and folded in half in landscape mode. Both panels measures 5-3/4 x 2″. Top panel is piece of Whisper White. I stamped one of the “swooshes” from Work of Art in Mint Macaron (briefly in the middle of the panel). Then I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black. The bottom panel is a piece of 2015-2017 In Color Envelope Paper.

Sweet & Mint 2

I adhered both panels to the base and added a ribbon in the middle ( I tucked the ends under the panels). Don’t you just love this Dotted Lace Trim Ribbon? It’s lush! I used glue dot to bunch up the ribbon and adhered button on top. First I was planning to finish it with bakers twine bow, but I didn’t like it. I added Blossom Accent instead.

Sweet & Mint 3

To finish my card off I added few star sequins. I didn’t plan that but needed to hide a boo-boo. I end up adding three just for a good measure 😉

Hope you like my sweet and simple card. It’s very versatile design and would work nicely with different sentiments toero. Plus it’s perfect for mass-producing: only took few minutes to put it together. So it’s a win-win.
