Design Team Challenge Reveal

Kristina made a New Year's card using the word Flourish for this challenge. The Kraft blank Note Cards made putting together a card a breeze. The handmade flower is creatively finished off with a Silver Bottle Cap. Please visit Kristina's blog for more details on this great New Year's greeting.

Kraft and white is one of Audrey's favorite color combinations and she used that here to convey a snowy, winter feel to this seasonal card. A distressed dot background gives the impression of falling snow, and touches of crystal clear glitter and pearl buttons add to the overall icy effect. All pair beautifully with the Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock and Card Sleeve Envelope. A bit of Brown Kraft Baker's Twine and Twill Tying Tape add the finishing touches. For tips and tricks on today's card, as well as more detail photos, check out Audrey's blog.

Aphra created this sweet Valentine's Card with lots of pink, red, and white and pearl butterfly flourishes. To start, she cut a 4" x 6" card base out of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock. Then she added layered lace ruffles by cutting four 2" x 6" kraft cardstock strips that she punched with a Martha Stewart lace doilie border punch. To add a little dimension on top of the border stickers, she added some Red Baker's Twine. Attached to the red twine is a White Round Metal Edged Tag topped with a heart sticker. And then finally, she added some butterflies to give the card a little movement. Please visit Aphra's blog to see close-ups of this card.
