The Kraft Journal 121 - Red, White OR Blue - Happy Birthday


Happy Monday Morning to you!

{For The Ribbon Reel Post please click here.}

For today's "Red, White, OR Blue" challenge at The Kraft Journal, I went with the color RED. Red looks fantastic with Kraft, but so does, Black and Kraft and White and Kraft.... well anything looks great with Kraft. :-)  For today's card, I started with a Kraft Cover weight card base onto which I added the red and white stripe patterned paper. I die-cut an oval using a Floral Oval Nestabilities die out of red card stock and placed it in the center. 

Next I cut various lengths of banners and stamped sentiments from Paper Sweeties Enjoy Your Day in red ink. I have lots of paper flowers in my stash, so I thought it would be fun to add a row along the center. To complete the look, I  tied a double bow by using a length of Natural Twill Tape which I further embellished with a button and Red and White Baker's Twine

Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other gals.  We hope to see your Red, White, OR Blue creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.  Be sure to stop back by on Wednesday as I am on The Kraft Journal blog with a fun little tutorial for you.  

Inspiration for this card was found at the Cardabilities Blog.
I hope you have a Marvelous Monday!
