Kraft and White

Good morning everyone! 

Jennie here with you today to share a little card made from some of my favourite colours - Kraft and White - BUT with that all important splash of red!

As you will all know by now I just love 4 x 4 cards, so I normally have a little stack of white cardstock already cut ready just to go. This piece was first stamped with some of my favourite little stamps using Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I stamped off first, so this was a second generation stamp in order to keep it light. A little ink was blended around the edges and a I added a few splatters. Finally I added some texture paste through a layering stencil.

Again I often keep a little stack of kraft and cream crardstock already cut to size (8 x 4) so I can layer my front layer quickly.

Some of these pieces were in my scrap box having been stamped or cut for other projects (I am a bit of a kraft/brown person really!).  The small leaf was punched from the Tim Holtz Leaf Punch and coloured with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

The small flower, and my pop of colour, was made using Tim Holtz's Spiky Floral Punch. I punched five flowers from a small piece of scrap card in my overflowing box. The three inner petals were scrunched and glued together whilst the outside two layers were rounded on the reverse with a ball tall.

I have a flower tutorial on my blog HERE for a similar flower made from the Tattered Floral Die which you might like to have a look at if you want to make a similar flower to mine.

And then it was just a matter of layering everything onto the card. Another card for the box and nice to know that I have used a few more scraps !

Have a lovely day and I hope you manage to find some crafting time.
