Mojo Monday 359 Chalk It Up Cards

Today I'll be picking up four grandchildren from their Christian school. The staff is always amazing. They work hard and keep such a wonderful atmosphere in the school. I made this first card today to give to the school secretary who is the first contact anyone has with the school and works overtime to make sure everything gets completed. She gets to know every child, every family in this large K-12 school. I want to encourage her and show my appreciation for a job well done.

This week I'm playing with my CTMH Chalk It Up paper and embellishments. I had already selected the chipboard I'd use on two layouts so I selected some for these cards. The package still has more for additional layouts or cards. (The Cricut Artbooking cut file on this card was designed and shared by Melanie Brown, another one of our CTMH consultants.) I love the new black striped twill ribbon that comes with the Chalk It Up Workshop on the Go. It's fairly thick but ties beautifully. I used Mojo Monday's sketch from this week:

 Her card has this stamped sentiment inside from the CTMH stamp set "Greatest Love."

Here's an example with other chipboard embellishments from the set of Chalk It Up Complements.

If you enjoy this Cricut Artbooking cartridge project but don't have your own cartridge you can shop for it here. If you'd like to get it for half the price, you can email me for details. Also, Close To My Heart will have a new card-making Cricut cartridge, Artfully Sent, in September, so keep checking here for details.
