Make It Monday with The Kraft Journal - All About Her #170

Happy Monday Friends!

{I am honored that this was selected as a Top 5 at Craftin Desert Divas on 5/11/14}

This week our challenge at The Kraft Journal is "All About Her". This would be a great time to work on those Mother's Day creations! We would love to see them. All you have to do is incorporate some Kraft somewhere in your project or use products sold at The Kraft Outlet
I started with a card base of Buff Ivory Cardstock onto which I layered Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock to a piece of patterned paper.  For some visual interest, I stamped various florals and butterflies onto the kraft piece. I rounded the right corners of the card for another fun touch.  Next, I took a length of Aqua Mist Hand Stained Bias Tape and wrapped it around the card front and tied in a fussy bow embellished with Yellow Baker's Twine and a button that was laying on my desk.

The Happy Mother's Day sentiment was stamped on a banner cut from Buff Ivory Cardstock.  Lastly, I created a focal point that was stamped using images from My Craft Spot Jar Full of Flowers on Buff Ivory Cardstock and layerd on a coordinated mated cut of aqua patterned paper.
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 All About Her 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.

I am sharing at Craftin Desert Diva's - Mother's Day, Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, Just B Crazy - May Linky Party, Ribbon Carousel Blog- Mother's Day, My Craft Spot - Mother's Day or Spring, Classy Cards 'n Such - Mother's Day.

Hi Tammy! I just wanted to let you know about another fun challenge where you can link your pretty card. Classy Cards N Such www.classycardsnsuch.blogspot.com is having a Mother's Day challenge this week, and since you used seam binding (which is also sold in their store) it qualifies.
