The Kraft Journal #44!

Hello friends!  I am delighted to have the honor of being Guest Designer at The Kraft Journal for the month of November!  I adore working with anything 'kraft-y', so creating with all the delicious goodness available at The Kraft Outlet is a match made in heaven!  The Week #44 challenge is called 'Give Thanks'.

For this little card I first adhered some pretty patterned papers with a machine sewn zig-zag stitch to a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock for the base of my card.  I sewed a snipett of Ruler Twill Ribbon to a Card Sleeve Envelope, inked the edges with cream paint and adhered to the card base.  Next I stamped the word 'friend' on a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and tied it around the stamped dress form image with Red Baker's Twine.  Lastely, I stamped a couple more images onto some Buff Ivory Cardstock, die cut them and adhered one to the front of the Card Sleeve Envelope and slipped one inside the envelope -- added a piece of tea-stained twill tape as the pull.  The addition of a pretty blossom, a couple Garnet Stick Pins and a pretty sparkler complete this design!

I hope you enjoyed peeking at my design this week!  I can't wait to show you another kraft-y project next Monday, so stay tuned and until then, happy 'krafting'!!!
