Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Shape It Up" Challenge
For today’s Shape It Up challenge, Tammy started this card by using an apple template with a Buff Ivory Cardstock base and pieced the apple, stem and leaf with patterned paper, and Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock which has been punched to resemble a Caramel Apple. Tammy then used a distress tool for the card's edge and added some vintage ink to further complete the distress look. She then stamped a whimsical sentiment “school days” to the upper left portion of the apple. For a finishing touch, Tammy embellished her apple card with some red buttons and twine.

Tracy decided to go with the hexagon shape for this weeks "Shape It Up" challenge. The card base was cut from black cardstock into a hexagon shape and matted with Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock and Kraft and Black Cardstock Pad papers. She wrapped the mats in some canvas fringe ribbon and Black Baker's Twine. For the center panel she matted hexagons of designer paper with Light Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and black. She wrapped one with more of the Baker's twine and added a Scalloped Grungy Prim Tag with a sentiment. Machine stitching, brads and a Copic colored bee on a decorative base complete the card.
