Taylored Expressions May Blast From the Past Blog Hop

I am very excited to be part of the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past blog hop today. This month, the theme is to make a masculine card which is a bit of a challenge for me. I am definitely more into the cute images and flowers. To add to the challenge, none of the sets I have from TE really fit the manly bill. So I went with fruit! My husband loves chocolate and chocolate covered strawberries. I did leave off the bow and did not allow a single flower on the card.
For my card today I used Taylor's Berries and Cherries set, which I love. I used the sketch provided by Sankari Wegman:
I started with the center panel and made that a sentiment panel. I added some fruit, colored with copics, to the ribbon panel. This past week, I discovered the technique to make paper buttons and decided to use that in this card. I punched out some circles of red cardstock, glued them together and punched holes in the middle. Some bakers twine finished that element. Too cute! I added a strawberry above the sentiment.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
