This weeks Challenge #227 - Take Your Pick is always fun.
Show us how creative you can be and now it's time to see what the Kraft Journal Design Team has come up with.
Karen Letchworth took a different approach to this week's Pick Three Challenge. While she did use three items from the list, they aren't as obvious as you might think. She did this to demonstrate that you don't have to take challenges so literally, and can have FUN creating! Karen started with a Small Buff/Ivory Note Card and added some machine-stitched and inked patterned papers. Next, she added a Jenni Bowlin Journaling Card and topped that with some chipboard pieces (her CAR). There's a small piece of Black With White Polka Dot Decorative Washi Tape under the chipboard (that's her BLACK item). There's RED and WHITE in the patterned papers, journaling card, and chipboard. The sentiment is a rub-on that she applied to a chipboard arrow using her Bone Folder Tool and this helpful tool always helps her get her rub-ons placed nicely without any hassle. Karen really hopes that you will play along this week, and invites you to visit her blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to take a closer look.
For this week's Pick 3, Tammy chose to use Red, White, and a fish. She created a cute card with a punny sentiment. She started with a card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight. She layered solid card stock onto the base. She die-cut a few circles and bunted them flush with the left side white panel trimming the excess. She used her electronic cutting machine to cut a cute little fish and adhered him to the center popping him up with foam adhesive. She then took a length of Red Baker's Twine and wrapped around the card front tying in a double bow. Lastly, she added the cute sentiment in the lower right corner with red ink to finish her card.

Kraft Card Stock is always great for masculine cards. So are cars. With those as Marsha's first two choices, it only seems logical to make the car red. But she did not stop with three from the list, she also used some Black Burlap Ribbon It is very thin and lays down nicely behind the die cut image. Gears go with cars, right? So Marsha cut out some gears using the Brown Kraft Card Stock, Light Kraft text paper, and some chocolate brown card stock. For more details, visit her blog, Gramma's Room.
