The Kraft Journal #159 Die-Cuts

Hey there!

I hope this finds you all rested from your weekend and ready to start a new week! I am still recovering from a shoulder separation. I am taking it one day at a time.  I have a card to share with you for the new challenge at The Kraft Journal. Luckily this is another project I had completed prior to injury. Just had to have some help with photographing etc.

So for today's challenge at The Kraft Journal "Die-Cuts", I used 8 different dies and a total of 9 dies on the card. I love using die-cuts. They work beautifully with felt, and I incorporated that today.

I started with a Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock base. I covered the front of the card with patterned paper leaving a portion of the Kraft exposed for the sentiment.  I took a length of Natural Twill Tape and wrapped it around the card front tying in a bow adding another bow using Metallic Twist Hemp Cord finishing it off with a button.

I used a die-cut frame from Brown Kraft Cover Weight and used Buff Ivory Cardstock to die-cut a square with my stamped image to nestle inside the frame. Below the stamped focal image, I have die-cut a border from Buff Ivory Cardstock to place where the patterned papers join. I have taken several flower dies from my collection to create felt layered flowers embellishing with buttons and pearls. 

Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your die-cut 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.

Have a wonderful day!
