A KRAFTY Challenge!

Well, it's Saturday and I'm back with another awesome Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge!!

This week our hostess is TRACY!!! Since we ALL are krafty girls, she figured it only appropriate that we GET KRAFTY this week!! So let's see you use that kraft cardstock on your creations....use kraft coloured ribbon, embellishments, patterned papers, whatever! But just GET KRAFTY!!

For my card, I actually cheated. This is a card that I made....oh about six months ago....and I've been hangin' onto it because it got picked up by Papercrafts Magazine!!! It was finally published in the May/June issue which is out right now! It's on the first page of the guy cards section (page 57)....I'm SO excited!

I made a very clean and simple card (which is SO not my style), but I figured it was a guy card and I didn't want anything too busy. Plus I wanted the card and sentiment to speak for itself.

I used Private Message (which just happens to be on sale this weekend) and stamped him on Neenah cardstock with Memento ink and coloured him in with my Copic markers. I only used Krafty and brown cardstock, distressed the edges of the main layer and attached some punched out stars with tiny brads. I also finished it off by accordion folding a strip of the brown cardstock rather haphazardly and adhering each fold down to keep it in place. Oh and the sentiment comes with Private Message, along with We Salute You!

(OH and don't forget about our awesome SALE going on this weekend....check the post below for details or just go to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!!)

(OH and one more thing.....Krafty Peeks for the May release start on Wednesday!! Eeeeee!)

Happy kraftin'!
