I have a blog buddy who 'says is as it is' - and she thinks that Kraft card is like wrapping paper or those old fashioned paper bags from our youth :) Good point, but I made this the other day - just to make her teeth itch, evil little monkey that I am:
- 6" x 6" square Kraft card
- a snippet of SU's 'Wild Wasabi' card stock, die cut twice with Marianne Creatables die number LR0120
- cream snippets die cut with Joy! 6002/024 daisies die. I left each flower in the die after cutting it and rubbed it over with a smidgen of Memento 'Toffee Crunch' ink using a finger dauber before removing it and then did the 'rubbing in the centre with a flower shaper' trick just to raise the petals a bit
- a selection of those little coloured circles - still lots left to ponder on :)
- my current favourite SU stamp from the 'Four Frames' set, stamped with 'Wild Wasabi' and the sentiment itself is from LOTV's 'Small General Greetings' set - and of course I used the matching SU punch
As usual, the SU paper and ink are a much better match in real life than the photo seems to infer :(
Kathleen, this one is just for you today! Snigger :)
What are you like? I have to say I rather like it :-)ReplyDelete
I have to admit, I am not keen on Kraft, though i have used it for a couple of challenges. But this is a sweet card, and the coloured flower centres give it a great lift. Kate xReplyDelete
another one not keen on kraft but I do think this is rather effective and fab use of your dots lolReplyDelete
Ooh Di, you cheeky monkey, playing such a trick on your friend, lol. I like kraft card, although a lot of my friends don't. I think your card is really pretty, and yup, it was very clever to use up those pesky little circles. Lynn xReplyDelete

Snigger snigger!! lovely work, love your thoughtfulness, Di! :D Shaz in oz.xReplyDelete
Tee hee . . . you little Minx.ReplyDelete
I didn't realise there was such divided opinion on Kraft card until I read your comments. I'm in the LOVE IT camp.
I think this card is FAB and I can't believe you even used the hole punch outs . . . ingenius.
Not even I am so frugal as to use hole punch waste on my craft projects - super-frugal you! :)ReplyDelete
I cannot live without Kraft paper and card - nothing else makes a good 'hinge' for a box - it doesn't crack on the creases, and holds ink beautifully.
AND I like the old-fashioned brown paper home-crafting look that Kraft gives - it matches with Christmas green and red wonderfully.
Have a great weekend - I'm thinking of stripping my craftroom of all superglue products *lol*
That's my gal!!! Using up your punched holes like a proper good girl should. Just been to a SU party where we all made cards and the others left snippets of triangles (cut from making points in the banners) and bits of ribbon on the desk. So I vacummed them all up into me bag and brought them home!!!! What a waste. Hugs Mrs Frugal.ReplyDelete
Just thought, should have added this in my earlier comment, and it is the first time I have commented in a morning, I am surprised that you didn't also add a butterfly to the card.
fab!! Hugs JulsReplyDelete
Wonderful card, love the flowers and the creative little centers:O) I seem to shy away from Kraft,it kind of baffles me but I sure love what other do with it!ReplyDelete
You naughty girl you!! I am afraid I am in the Love it gang too!ReplyDelete
This truly is a Snippets card!
I LOVE this!!! Is it for Lynne or Kath?!ReplyDelete
