Kraft Outlet Design Team Reveal

Jennifer Cuthbertston
Jennifer used layers of paper tape over a wonderful postcard shipping tag to create this jumbo tag for her friend's wedding shower gift! Guess the wedding date? Yep, November 12th! :) Additional layers include film strip ribbon, a love ticket, and a November calendar bingo card. The card was finished off with reinforcer stickers, some black seam binding ribbon, gorgeous stick pins, and a vintage button for some extra sparkle. Head over to her blog for more information!

Tracy MacDonald
Tracy chose to make a baby themed card with lots of layers for this weeks challenge.  She used a card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and matted it with a square of Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock.  The cross panels are made from the same and all panels were then layered with designer paper.  The image was colored with Copic markers and matted also on those same papers.  Beneath the vertical panel Tracy added a strip of Translucent Vellum that was punched with a decorative edge punch.  The bow was created from 7 Gypsies Victoria seam binding and the sentiment was stamped on a White Round Metal Edge Tag.

Kim Duran
Kim loves to use lots of layers on her cards, so she was super excited for our "lavish layers" challenge this week. For her Halloween themed creation, she used Light Kraft cardstock and fun patterned paper. She started her layers by using Vintage Dictionary Pages, ribbon and trim. Then placed a Halloween Bingo Card, Black Apothecary Stickers, and a stamped "trick or treat" banner. Kim embellished her seam binding ribbon by adding Black Baker's Twine and two Memo Stick Pins.
