The Kraft Journal #173 - Clean And Simple

Hi There!

For this week's "Clean and Simple" challenge at The Kraft Journal, I started with a card base from Brown Kraft Cover Weight onto which I took another panel of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock slightly smaller than the card base and stamped the branch image from Paper Smooches Reflections using Versamark ink and clear embossing powder.  I used a die-cut to form a window in the middle.

I placed a piece of Buff Ivory Cardstock to the base and stamped the focal image using sstamps also from Paper Smooches Reflections and a sentiment from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler. To give the top panel dimension, I added foam adhesive to the back.  Lastly, I took a length of Orange Baker's Twine and wrapped it around the card front tying off in a bow.

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 Clean and Simple 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 The Pink Elephant - Anything Goes

Have a wonderful day!
