Kraft Card

Good Morning Everyone from a very wet & miserable Essex. Perfect excuse to stay warm & cosy & do some crafting.
I have finally finished a card that I started a couple of weeks ago for my Hobbycraft demo. This was the 1st time I had chance to play with Kraft Card & I have to say I love it!

I used the Molly Bloom's Christmas Carnival Stamps & Papers on the front of the card. The main image has been coloured with Promarkers & decoupaged. The pompom on his hat has been stickled. I created the ticket by masking off a Pink Gem Thank You ticket stamp so I could add my own sentiment in the centre. I then threaded some Jute through the centre of a button.

On the inside of the card I have changed the papers & created a bookmark which I have slipped into the pocket. To keep the theme running I have used the Holly stamp to add decoration. Here is close up of the bookmark.

To create the bookmark I found 2 Kraft Tags that were free with a magazine. I stamped a motorbike image in the corner of it. I coloured this with a water brush, ink pad & distress ink. I then distressed the edge of the bookmark & added a ribbon. x Clare x

What a lovely card. So stunning design. I like the colors and love the CAS style design like Plastic cards which make the card POP. Thanks for sharing.
