The Kraft Journal #192 - No Patterned Paper

Good Monday Morning Friends!

{Yay! Happy that this cutie was winner over at My Craft Spot challenge #154 on 10/15/14}

I have a fun Halloween card for you today for our new challenge at The Kraft Journal.  This week's challenge is "No Patterned Paper". We ask that you use Kraft on your project or products from The Kraft Outlet. As you can see, I have no Kraft this week, but I have a few other products on my card that The Kraft Outlet carries. 
I started with a pumpkin orange card base which I layered with coordinating pinking shear die-cut mats from Simon Says Stamp. For the black base, I used Blackboard Stock Paper.  I used the letterpress technique for the spider web embossing. I did a tutorial awhile back you can check out here if you are interested in learning how to added color to your embossed impressions.
I used my Cricut to cut out this cute little monster from the Mini Monster cartridge at 3 1/2 inches and paper pieced him together and applied him to the center of the black spider web mat. All black pieces you see were cut using Blackboard Stock Paper.  I cut the pumpkin treat holder at 1 1/2 inches. A knotted White Twill Tape bow was added to the top embellished with an orange button laced with Orange Baker's Twine to complete the card. 

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 "No Patterned Paper" 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 also sharing at Die Cuttin' Diva's -  Anything Goes, My Craft Spot - Trick or Treat.

I hope you have a super wonderful week!
