Happy Sunday Crafteteers!
It has been a trying week in the craft room. Friday's Totally Gorjuss card took way too long for me to make and I have been struggling to get cards made. I never realized a little vacation can throw me off so much! Last night I dropped the project I was doing and made a card for the Kraft Journal challenge this week. Come to find out, it was just what I needed to get back into the swing of things! I finished the Kraft Journal card and finished the other card I was working on. Woo-who!
A tidbit about this card: before I went on vacation I wrote down the list of upcoming Kraft Journal challenges. This list was my "excuse list" to buy crafty goodies. :) While in the States, I went to Hobby Lobby and saw the leaf flourishes embossing folder from Darice...I bought it to use in the Kraft Journal challenge. What a great background! I am very happy with the purchase and that list. (Just had to share that with you all.) So, onto the card details...
The leaf flourishes folder dry embossed Kraft paper. I flipped the embossed paper over and applied TH distress ink, Broken China. A burgundy Copic marker was applied along the edge. The paper was misted using Art Co's gold glitter mist. Another piece of Kraft paper was cut and TH Spice Marmalade was applied. Inkadinkado's So Thankful for You stamp was heat embossed in burgundy then die cut using Spellbinders Assorted Leaves (S4-076). Cream twine was applied on the card, the die cut foam taped on top then I added gems in blue, burgundy and pale orange. Voila!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a happy Sunday.
