Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Use Any Sketch" Challenge
|Jan Del Bone|
Designer Becky Garrison got her start making cards by joining in on sketch and other challenges, so this week's theme was right up her alley! Using a base of Lunch Bag Kraft card stock, Becky made a 4 x 6" card base, then cut a bit of patterned paper to 3 3/4" x 5 3/4" and rounded the corners using a punch. Next she cut a small slit about 1 1/2" in the top fold of the card, and wrapped some Earthy Hemp Cord around, sliding the end through the slit, and then tying it in the center on front. She cut a circle from a printed image and a scalloped circle just a bit larger from coordinating card stock. Then she adhered it to the card using foam dots. The sentiment is from a sentiment sticker adhered to a strip of lunch bag kraft card stock that she had cut little 'tails' from on either side. To find out which sketched she used, and more info on how she made the card, check out Becky's blog, Becky Garrison Paper Crafts.
To be perfectly honest, Design Team Member Karen Letchworth was a little thrown off at the first thought of picking a sketch to follow. She had no idea which sketch to choose, or even where to begin. So, she literally "googled" the words card sketches, saw oodles of sketches, closed her eyes, pointed to one on the screen, and WENT WITH IT! This is the sketch she found in her google search:
Karen used a card base made from Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock which is just so super vesatile. She used several patterned papers, felt flowers, and machine stitching. Some of the little details of her card include Baker's Twine (The Kraft Outlet has a wide variety of baker's twine in a rainbow of colors), the sweet little Tim Holtz Memo Pins and a bow made of Natural Hemp. Karen is hoping that you'll pop on over to The Kraft Outlet, pick up some great bargains on your products, and come play along in our "Follow Any Sketch" Challenge this week at The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog.
