15 Minute Mojo


Okay, I had a little pocket of time, so I created this super simple sample card for this week's mojo sketch. This sketch was inspired by the bed railing in the Verve Project Parade Inspiration Challenge photo, and so I decided to go with a flourishy patterned paper, in keeping with the inspiration piece. The designer paper is from Chatterbox and to do the panels, I simply started with a 4" square of designer paper. I then cut four strips 1/2 inch wide and then one strip 3/8" wide (which gets thrown away) to account for the gutters in between each strip. If you want bigger gutters, you just cut a bigger strip. Next I mounted the strips on a 4 1/8" square piece of black cardstock.

The rectangle is cut and embossed with Nestabilities Classic Rectangle dies and mounted on a black Nestabilities scallop rectangle. I stamped the plain butterfly from Fluttering By in Versafine Onyx Black and then colored with a Copic {BG10} marker and covered with a mixture of Dazzling Diamonds/Diamond Glaze. I finished off with three rhinestones in the corner and the sentiment from Petals & Stems in the corner. Finished card size is 4.25" square. Easy peasey! :)

  10. Julee, it may be simple but it is gorgeous! Why do I try to complicate the sketches so? This is a wonderful sketch, your card is beautiful and and I need to give this sketch a try without all the complication I originally saw.

    Beautiful card!
