Happy Birthday to Less is More!
It's hard to believe I've been playing along with this challenge for two years! (Well, technically, I've missed a few weeks...but not too many!) Needless to say, this is one of my favorite challenges and I look forward to Saturday mornings when the new challenge is posted.
This week's challenge is to create a card using the Kraft and Kreme (it took me a minute to realize that this is what I call "creme").... I had to put my thinking cap on for this one, but I finally came up with a few cards to share with you all.
I cut a Kraft panel slightly smaller than the Kraft card base. I used a MB die to cut out the flower in the panel, then cut it out again in a creme card stock. I put some strips of score tape on the back side of the panel then paper pieced the creme colored flowers back into the Kraft (using the Kraft piece to fit in between the two flowers. I then added a small piece of white copy paper on the back side of the score tape. The sentiment is from PTI and was stamped in a cocoa brown Memento ink. I popped the panel over the card base. It's is so difficult to photograph Kraft! I must have taken 25 pictures of my cards this week...and the Kraft always has a grey cast to it!
This card was made using the creme card base. I cut the Spellbinder floral oval from the Kraft card stock, then cut a smaller creme oval. I used one of the SU pocket silhouette stamps for the flower on the creme, the sentiment is from PTI. I added three small creme pearls below the sentiment (they look yellow for some reason, but they really are creme IRL). The creme oval is pop dotted over the floral oval, which is adhered directly to the card base.
For this card, I used a creme card base and a Kraft panel on the front. I cut the MB butterfly from the Kraft, then layered the butterfly over the top of the shape cut out in the Kraft panel. I lifted the wings slightly and added a bit of sparkly with a Sakura clear star pen. The sentiment is from PTI. I used a deco corner chomper on the corners of the Kraft panel and popped the panel with pop dots.
Since I had the flower I cut from the Kraft, I decided to cut another from the creme to make this card. This card is basically a one layer card. I cut the flower from the creme, then just inserted the Kraft flower. The sentiment is SU. I did have to add a paper over the back of the flower to keep it in the card.
I was really getting on a roll with this color combination...I think I love it!
