Kraft Card ...

Hi Everybody,

Here is a card that stay away from the usual pinks and blues and this time I have been playing around with some Kraft Card.

On it's own it can be pretty uninspiring .... but used with another colour the result is quite pleasing. Here I have kept it neutral and teamed it with Ivory and there are lots of layers to this design.

It is an 8" card and I have added the "A"frame to the back which gives you a lot of space on the back for you to add your greeting and signature.... but saves you the pain of finding a suitable insert.

Starting from the base of Ivory card I have layered another panel of Ivory and then added the Grand Decorative Labels 1

It was a wee bit too small so I cut it onto quarters and added them to each corner of Kraft Card which has had the corners rounded.

I made a slit in these panels and then each corner of the Kraft Card has been tucked under the edge of the Grand Labels 1

The next layer has been embossed and again rounded and I have used lots of foam tape to separate every other layer.

The centre panel is Timeless Rectangles and layered with the next size down, and tucked behind that is the large die from Venetian Motifs which has been cut in half and added to each side.

I have used my favorite Labels 20 which has been stamped and embossed in Gold and then decorated with the matching "Bling" from Want2Scrap

I have used leaves form the Foliage set ...  Swirls are Venetian Motifs ... flowers from Daisy Heads  

The butterfly was free with a magazine and is complete with a pearly trial.  A pearl to the centre of the flower and this is a card that I really like.

Hugs xx
