More Kraft Card ...

Hi Everybody,

The Kraft Card that I am using is from  Papermill  Direct and can now only be bought online.  I used to love going to their shop in Freeport and buying all the lovely colours they make. When the shops closed down well over a year ago now ... well that little trip out was gone.

But once they announced that the shops were to close ...  and had their sale to get rid of all the card ... I had a field day and bought absolutely tons of the stuff.   The Kraft card was not in the shops though so I ordered some online and it arrived yesterday.

This card has again used the neutral palette of Ivory and Kraft and I have cut the base of Ivory from the Grand Decorative Ovals

The second size down is the right size to fit on the Card Stand from   Joy Crafts.

I  cut a plain oval from some lovely caramel coloured foiled card form Cardcraft Plus

The book has been cut from old book pages using the largest die from  Labels 23 and I have add the matching pearly "Bling" from Want2Scrap

The pages have all been glued along the spine only and foam pads used to separate each page.

The top page is cut from some "Happy Birthday" Vellum and decorative cord has been added to the centre.

The Butterflies are Les Papillion  and they have pearls along the body line.

A rather masculine card but one I like never the less.

I can feel an urge for pink coming on ... so watch this space ....

  1. Christina, I love both the ivory and craft cards. I sometimes teach a card group and have been thinking of giving them only craft and white and getting them to make a card suitable for both a man and a woman, so I'll see how they go when the time comes.

  2. Love this...such a stunning card to give to someone on their birthday..x
