The Kraft Journal #88!

Hello friends and welcome to my blog today!  I'm happy to share a little something I created for The Kraft Journal #88 - 'Lavish Layers' challenge!!  I hope you enjoy my card :)

I began my design with a base of Buff Ivory Card Stock inked around the edges.  For the second layer, I inked the edges of a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft Card Stock and then layered a piece of Decorative Tape and a couple pieces of patterned papers, machine sewing around all the edges.  I added a pretty paper doilie and then tied some Red Baker's Twine around the middle of the card.  I stamped a heart image and sentiment from the Paper Sweeties Little Wishes set, tied it onto the Red Baker's Twine and added a Tiny Colored Wooden  Clothespin.

I created an envelope made from polka dotted pattern paper and inside I inserted a heart die cut from Cork onto which I machine sewed a snipett of lace trim.  I cut out two leaves from Vintage Dictionary Pages and then adhered them along with a white felt flower.  Last, I added two Garnet Stick Pins to the top of the nosegay to complete my layered design.

And there you have it my stampy friends ... a lavishly layered little card!!

Please be sure to pop on over to The Kraft Journal challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the talented teamies!!
