Design Team Reveal - Spring Cleaning
Aphra Boyler
 For this week's Spring Cleaning challenge, Aphra cleaned out some scraps to create her pretty card. The base of the card is a piece of 5" by 10" Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock folded in half to create a 5" by 5" card. To create the butterflies, Aphra punched through the front of the card and then backed the opening with different patterned paper scraps. Each butterfly is adorned with a little button and some Hemp Cord. A bit of ribbon and some stickers and the card is ready for giving!

Kristina Harmon
Kristina did a bit of Spring Cleaning in her craft room to create her card, using up what she already had in her stash to create it. Brown Kraft Note Cards are the perfect base for making your own greeting cards. A sentiment stamped on a Grungy Prim Tag and placed inside of a Glassine Bag makes a great statement, all tied off with a bow made with Victoria Seam Binding by 7gypsies. You can read more about this card on her blog, Kristina's World.

Audrey Pettit
Audrey created a fun spring-themed card this week using vintage images and some of her favorite supplies from The Kraft Outlet. Buff Ivory cardstock forms the base of the card, along with a scalloped border punched from Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock, vintage lace, and lots of machine stitching. Free online vintage cleaning images were printed onto Buff Ivory cardstock and added as both a center panel and the round focal image that is layered on a label die cut from PreCut Chipboard. A tiny spring tag is attached with a safety pin to a bow made from Victoria Seam Binding. A vintage-inspired button and clear gems finish things off. For more photos and details, please visit Audrey's blog.
