Jot's June Mood Board Challenge

Lots of layers. Oodles of layers. That's what my cards are usually made of when I do the Jot Mood Board right? I can't help it! Something about trying to make sure I include all those colours into one small 6x4" space means I have to start stacking rather than spreading out!

The colour palette this month for the Jot Magazine Mood Board Challenge is so elegant with it's neutral tones and black & white stripes. It also included lots of floral images and that's what inspired me to go in this wedding-esque direction for my card contribution.

It might look like a bit of fiddly hard work to make this come together but can I tell you it was surprisingly easy? My secret is using a set of Mix and Match Flower (and leaf) dies from Sizzix. I simply grabbed a bunch of paper scraps that matched the colour scheme and then went crazy die-cutting them all out. The best part about it was that all the flowers come with a hole already punched through the middle so after stacking up all my layers I only needed to stick a brad through the middle and they were done!

If you're interested I've actually posted a whole tutorial on how to make this card on the Sizzix blog HERE ;-)

In the meantime, I hope you'll join us with the Jot Magazine Mood Board Challenge this month? There's a prize sponsored by our very own Sharmaine Kruijver on offer for the lucky winner. See all the details on how to enter HERE.
