JAI 206 Just add Saleabration

Hello there,
well the annual SU! Saleabration (SAB) promotion wraps up in a couple of weeks but before it does and while we all still have these lovely goodies in our hands to play with we thought it would be fun to make this weeks Just Add Ink challenge - Just Add SAB. So get out those stamps sets, the embossing folder the punch etc and come join us for some fun this week. This is what I came up with.

One to show you the shine from the embossing and gold foil trims

And the inside (with as my daughter pointed out crooked stitching but I decided it was all part of the handmade effect)

OK I can't deny this was labour intensive but I really enjoyed piecing this pattern together with all the banner punch pieces. Many of you will recognise that I pulled the colours from the Good as Gold card kit also a SAB freebie.

For once I kept it sleek and modern, with no sponging in sight!! The sharp angle of the banner shape and the geometrical patterns layering them created just called for that approach. Of course there had to be a bit of bling - so I used narrow strips of gold foil paper down the sides, some gold stitching (yum!) and embossed the black sentiment.

I loved how this turned out!! Do get out your SAB products and show us what you can make with them - we'd love to see it! For more inspiration check out the rest of the DT - you'll be wowed for sure!
