So Tweet of You - {The Kraft Journal}

Hello There!

This week at The Kraft Journal the new challenge is Birds.  I started with a card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock which I layered pieced patterned papers together leaving the bottom of the A2 size card exposed to a thin space of Kraft.  In black ink, I stamped "So Tweet of you" (Wilson Designs) to the lower right corner. Next I took a Brown Kraft Tag and stamped small butterfly images (DeNami Design) in Versa Mark Ink to create a subtle background.

Once the stamping was done, I added Natural Twill Tape to the top of the tag next adding the prepped tag to the card front horizontally in the center. Next I took a Vintage Black Journaling Card that has a bird on it to the left of the card front.  I die-cut a decorative circle in gray cardstock adding a punched scallop circle from Vintage Dictionary Pages to the center. I used my Cricut machine to cut out the bird using the Wall Decor and More cartridge by cutting it out three times with Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and gluing them on top of the other to form a replica of chipboard. Next I cut the bird one more time from gray patterned paper and glued it to the top of the prepped chipboard piece adding it to the right of the decorative circle. In the center I added a multi-loop bow created from Earthy Hemp Cord adding a resin pink flower to the center 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 Bird 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!

Very sweet, Tammy! I love all those layers and the birds are adorable. I really like the small butterflies you added to the kraft tag, too, and that sentiment is just perfect!
