Turns out, I just needed a little Bo Bunny to lure Mojo back!
I had a request to make some neutral baby cards for a friend and this Bo Bunny paper was just the thing to get my creative juices flowing again.
Using Bo Bunny Flutter Butter Honey, Flutter Butter Willow and Flutter Butter Breeze, and my favourite combination of SU Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla, these baby cards came out perfectly!
I saw this layout on a blog (which has totally gone missing from my bookmarks) as a way of using up scrap paper. I was instantly inspired and really love how this one turned out. I will absolutely be using this sketch again. The original sketch used four different patterns, but I like the look of three.
I had to laugh at myself; I hate putting panels on cards (I never measure when I’m making a card). I typically ignore those sketches and pick something else. So for my first card in nearly a month to be one with panels, is really quite shocking.
In case you’re wondering, I did measure for this one; the Old Olive mat is approx 4” wide; each panel of DP is 1 1/4” wide. I used my MS border punch and finished the card with some Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon. On the inside is a piece of the Green DP layered on Very Vanilla, with the bottom border punched to match the front of the card.
“Hello little baby” sentiment is from the SU Sweet Little Sentiments set.
The next card, I used the same paper, but a much different layout and stamp set.
Instead of using a horizontal piece of paper, I used SU Old Olive 1 1/4” Grosgrain striped ribbon. I love this ribbon, but find it hard to use on a card and keep it flat enough to mail in a regular envelope, so this was a good compromise.
Three turquoise rhinestones balance the bottom corner and bring out the turquoise in the DP.
I’m glad to have my Mojo again; especially since my mom has requested a special Birthday Box and half a dozen Easter cards!
Ciao for now,
