A Note of Thanks {The Kraft Journal}

Good Day to you!

I love making school themed cards and this week's Take Your Pick challenge is perfect for that. I started with a card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock which I layered with an alphabet patterned paper leaving the bottom of the kraft exposed. I stamped a Reverse Confetti sentiment in the lower right corner in black ink. I took a length of Natural Twill Tape and wrapped it around the card front where the patterned paper ended tying the ends off with a bow of Dark Green Baker's Twine and a red button.

Using Buff Ivory Cardstock, I created an Alpha embossed background for the focal image punching the bottom to create a notebook look.  I then wrapped more Dark Green Baker's Twine around the card a few time and tied off in a bow.  Next adding the apple that was cut using my Cricut and the Preserves Cartridge by using various patterned papers, Buff Ivory Cardstock and Blackboard Stock Paper. For a final finishing touch, I added a small double bow at the top of the apple created with Dark Green Baker's Twine.

Here is the Take Your Pick Inspiration for this week.
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 Take Your Pick 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 great week!
