Last week I read about a new challenge called The Great Mojo Comeback, and since my mojo has been MIA for waaaay too long, I'm in! This week's challenge is to use a fabby layout by the super-talented Shari Carroll as a sketch for our cards:
I broke out my old and dusty pack of Basic Grey Stella Ruby papers to make the vertical strips. At the end, I went all crazy and popped the top strip up on dimensionals.
I must have played with letters to fit on the die-cut piece FOR-EVAH. I finally die-cut the 'i' and 'u' (dies from MFT) from a piece of Stella Ruby paper, and the Heart (Nesties) from a different piece of Stella Ruby paper. Yeah, at this rate it's definitely SABLE. (look it up in the left side bar)
I wanted to use buttons for the yellow elements on Shari's sketch, but most of my buttons are shiny or not quite the right color, so, as is my nature, I made my own buttons from the Stella Ruby papers. Perfect match! I actually punched the bottom layers out of Kraft and just the top layers out of the red. I'm trying to ensure the SABLE factor, here. :)
I dismembered some brads and glued them (legless) into the holes of the buttons with some Glossy Accents.
I really like how this one turned out. It's muted. It's not too froo-froo. I think a guy could even send or receive this one. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
