Using Kraft

Using Kraft is a challenge for me.  But when I saw this technique posted on Simon Says Summer School video, I thought Kraft would be a good way to try this technique.  My Kraft was just a scrap and I don’t know where I got it but it had a grain to it.  It worked wonderfully well for this application.  This card is created for the Simon Says Stamp Kraft Challenge.  Inside says, what a beautiful difference one single life made.

Simon Says Stamp asked for something that could be used as transportation.  I needed some masculine cards and thought the challenge was a good fit for this card.  I got to use up a bit more designer paper.  The dent is miniscule but all the minisucles for the past two years are adding up.  I can finally see a teeny bit of a dent in all that paper. I think I can create for the next ten years w/o buying anymore paper though. Open-mouthed smile  This card measures almost 8 x 4 inches and fits into a business sized envelope.

Simon Says S

The challenge from Simon is to be inspired by the letter S.  The first thing that came to my mind was the word SENTIMENT.  I let this Sentiment speak for itself.  It also is Shimmery and Soft looking .  You can see the challenge by clicking here.  Thanks for stopping by. (it is also the last piece of vellum I have like that.)IMG_1181  Sad smile
