The Kraft Journal #106!


For today's 'Nothing but Kraft' challenge#106 at The Kraft Journal, I began with a base of Brown Kraft Card Stock onto which I layered a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft Card Stock that was embossed, inked and a machine zig-zag stitch was used to adhere the embossed piece to the base.  Next, I covered a Card Sleeve Envelope with some Music Note Washi Tape and adhered it to the base.  


A pretty bloom was made using dies with a couple of scrap pieces of Lunch Bag Kraft Card Stock -- the layers were adhered together and a resin floral piece was added to the center of the bloom.  A heart shape was die cut from Cork and I did some additional machine sewing around the edges before adhering the heart to the card.  A bit of Kraft tulle, a couple of Antique Stick Pins and a pretty Kraft ticket were added to complete the pretty Kraft nosegay.


I created a sweet little tag that pulls out of the Washi Tape covered Card Sleeve Envelope by inking the edges and stamping a sentiment using the So Sweet of You stamp set from Paper Sweeties.  A snipett of Burlap was added for additional texture and then I glued a Chipboard Button on top of the Burlap.  Last, I stamped a heart shape using the Snow Friends stamp set directly onto a scrap piece of Cork, cut it out and adhered it on top of the Chipboard Button.  A length of Natural Twill Tape was added to the top of the tag to complete my design.
