Kraft - ing


How has your weekend been?  Just popping with a few cards that I have made playing with kraft card....I love the texture and colour that it gives but don't use it very often.

First up is a card that I have made using Hero Arts (new to me) Five Line background:

I white embossed on kraft and clear embossed on black - it gives a lovely crisp look.  The tag is a HA die cut and I inked through their numbers stencil.  The sentiment is from HA's Heyday Sentiments on the Mama Elephant die cut banner.
I will play along with Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge which is Anything Goes and also with Hero Art's sketch challenge - sketch #2
Next I made this:
I stamped the fab button stamp from Hero Arts Not Perfect stamp set.  I thought it would be fun to add a stitch to the middle button which means I can play along with Virginia's View May Challenge.  I love seeing stitching on other people's cards but it isn't something I have ever done myself...I might try something a bit more ambitious before the end of the challenge :)
I hope you like them.  Thanks for stopping by!
