Project 90: Mojo for an MBE recipient

My friend Hannah commissions the most unique cards from me. And I love her for it. She always comes to me with personalised briefs (see this Christening card or this new home card or this wedding card). So when she asked me to make a congratulations card for her mom's friend who had been awarded an MBE I was delighted. (She also commissioned another card but it's not finished so 'll post that on a different day.)

I looked to Mojo Monday for inspiration and found it. I liked the simplicity of the layout and thought it would work for this more serious occassion. This was the sketch:

The papers are Latte by  DCWV and I haven't used them for a while but I love the patterns and colors. Green strip is embossed with polka dots (I tried a damask embossing folder but it was way too busy) and I used a purple flower with a button to give it the embellishment. I tried adding a mini banner as per the sketch but it didn't work.

The brown paper is usually hard to use but I think by making it the feature it works. I used a long and complicated peel-off for the greeting as I thought it suited the occasion.

Will post the other card later this week when it's finished!


  1. I like this a lot. Great use of the stack. Cx

  2. I completely forgot about Latte stack...I found it on Monday and yelped with joy a bit. It was an emotional time.
