The Kraft Journal - Fun Sketch

This week at The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog, we're having a fun "Sketch Challenge".  Since I needed to make a birthday card for a sweet little girl, I just grabbed some supplies from the Kraft Outlet and got right to work following this adorable sketch.  I started my project with one of my Kraft Outlet favorites - a Large Buff Ivory Notecard.  To that, I machine stitched several different scraps of patterned papers to a Buff Ivory Cardstock base.  Once the foundation was laid, I added two strips (stars and ruler) of Black Apothecary Stickers, a Number Flag Banner Sticker, and tied a bow made from Pastel Hemp Cord with a General Store Flatback Pin (25 cents) in the center of the bow.

The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on that's rubbed onto a small scrap of Buff Ivory Cardstock - I love using the Bone Folder tool for applying rub-ons, as well as for making crisp, clean folds on my cards.  The Kraft Outlet has LOTS of great supplies for card-making; including several brand new items, and I look forward to seeing what you will create this week as you play along in our "Sketch Challenge".  It's always a treat to have you play along.

  11. Karen, The little loops you manage to make with the hemp are always so adorable. The papers are perfect for that layout. remember when $.25 was a fair amount of cash?
