The Kraft Journal #186 - Punches

Good Monday Morning!

For my Trendy Twine Gift Packaging Post click here.

Welcome to The Kraft Journal "Punches" Challenge. 
We want to see your creations using your punches and either products purchased or can be purchased from "The Kraft Outlet" and/or Kraft cardstock.
I started with a card base made from Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock which I stamped a medallion image using kraft ink directly to the cardstock base. I then used Kraft Text Weight paper and a few punches to create the flower. I spritzed them with Mister Huey's pinstripe Mist and scrunched and rumbled them up a bit.  I punched a hole in the center adding a brad to the center.  Before adding the flower embellishment to the card front, I punched a border from patterned paper and added it to the center of the card. I then wrapped a length of Vintage Winter White Bias Tape around the card front and tied in a fussy bow adding a flower and Memo pin for further embellishing. Lastly, I punched a bird from colored cardstock and the wing from Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and mounted with foam adhesive.
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 Punch 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.
