Getting Krafty...

Hello Blogger friends!

I've popped in this morning after a late night of card making to share one of my 'Krafty' creations.

Having been inspired by a number of talented paper crafters, I armed my stash with kraft card stock in the very beginning of my card making journey. I have to admit though, I wasn't really a huge fan of it. Being an admirer of the clean and simple style, I couldn't really find the charm in creating on what reminded me of paper grocery bags!
Despite my distaste for the kraft variety, I used it because everybody else did  it's always on trend.

Then one day, I saw this beautiful card created by Jennifer Mcguire and my love affair of kraft began...

Skip ahead to yesterday, when CAS-ual Fridays presented us with this Kraft On challenge!

Create a clean & simple project using Kraft

Challenge accepted!

I'm so, so, so happy with the way it turned out!

Loving the slight sparkle from the gel pens :o)

Okey Dokey, that's it for now.
I have another krafty creation that still needs to be photographed, so look out for Getting Krafty II.

Thanks so much for stopping by and please take a moment to comment and join!
Have a wonderful day!

P.S. I read EVERY SINGLE COMMENT and APPRECIATE them ALL! Thanks for the wonderful words, they mean so very much to me <3


  1. This is awesome Simi! Did you mask the flowers, and cut them out? Cool idea, such a gorgeous card.

    1. Thanks Lesley! They're masked but they aren't cut out. The whole panel is flat :o)
