You Had Me At Kraft....

Hey there!!  As the title of my post may suggest to you I have a card I made using kraft cardstock.  I think I love making cards with kraft cardstock almost as much as I love making cards with white cardstock.  So when I saw the new color combo from CR84FN of yellow, kraft and a neutral I was totally in!  I love kraft with just about every color, but for some reason I particularly like it paired with yellow and cream.   I combined the CR84FN combo with the new sketch from Waltzingmouse.



Late last week I got some new Waltzingmouse stamps (yay!!), You're Lovely and Cicely at Halloween and just had to use the You're Lovely set for the card.  I stamped the dress image on PTI's Bitty Dot Basics kraft paper and then trimmed out the dress portion.  I stamped the rosette on some PTI Lemon Tart Bitty Box Basics and trimmed it out, as well.  The dress image was stamped again on cream cardstock and then the dress and rosette adhered to that image.  I stamped the sentiment using Stampin Up!'s Crumb Cake (kraft) ink and trimmed it out.  The kraft colored seam binding is from Stampin Up! and I used it to create a double bow to which I adhered a little cream Prima rose.  

Thanks for taking a peek...

Hello Rosie
That shade of Yellow can only be described as Delicious, the large scallop top border steals the show for me, your muted tones are a mix of both warm and cool shades, a beautiful combination which creates a WOW factor.
