Kraft Thank You Card


Happy Sunday, All!  I do hope you are having a great weekend. 

Yesterday was a fun day: Rebecca and I went to Carsand Mosher to pick up some crafting goodies.  It was a fun trip and we picked up some sweet new crafty items...one of which is Spellbinders Doodle Parts.  This die set was on the clearance rack for 50% off!  Woo-who!  I decided to use two of the die doodles on my Thank You card I am entering in the Kraft Journal and 3 Girl Jam challenges this week.

You may notice one different thing about my card: it is not square or rectangle.  I usually stick with rectangular shapes but I want to get out of that consistency and move on to new shapes.  So here it is...my first non-rectangle card!  (feel free to insert applause here for my daredevil crafting)


The Kraft card shape was die cut from QuicKutz Nesting Doily Ovals.  (This is the first time I have used QuicKutz and I am quite impressed.  It cut quick and easy.)  The pretty floral and dot papers are from the Prima Romantique mini pad.  The dot paper was die cut using Spellbinders Stately Circles.  JustRite stamp set Lace Medallion Labels provided the "Thank You" and was inked with Memento's Rich Cocoa.  The pearl flower embellishment on the bow is a Recollection's item.  Wee pearls and Stickles were added in the areas shown.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving comments!  They are so appreciated.  

This card is entered in the following challenges:
Kraft Journal, Pretty Papers
3 Girl Jam, AG with Ribbon

  3. This is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! I love the base and it's delicate edges. Great job, my friend. Regarding The Kraft Journal Challenges, they close their challenge entries on Sunday. I'm not sure at what time. And the new one starts again Monday morning. The Kraft Journal is also going through some "management changes" right now, so there's a chance it may have closed a bit early (I'm not certain) but I do know it closes early. This card is truly the most beautiful one shared in the challenge this week, and I'm really sorry you didn't get to link it. I will let them know, and if you want....you could change the date this post is published (to show tomorrow's date), and then link it into tomorrow's challenge (which will be "Tie It On"). If I'm confusing you, please email me (address on WAW blog). I hope I've helped!
    This really is a gorgeous card, and I thank you SO MUCH for sharing it. Also, remember that you can share five entries per week at Word Art Wednesday and I always SO LOVE having you share your amazing art with us there. God bless your week!
