Krafty Birthday Wishes

 
 
Hi and Good Morning Everyone, Alison here today sharing my card inspired by this weeks challenge theme of 'Keep It Krafty' .  Kraft card is so versatile and great for autumnal colours, masculine cards and vintage, so I hope you will find time to play along. :)
 
I used a 6 x 6 inch Kraft Card base, and all the layers and dies were cut from one other additional card base so everything would match.  I layered Prima Papers and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I made the gorgeous bunting by using the Pennant die and cutting one layer in card and one layer from paper. 
 
 
The 'waste' from the paper sits perfectly on top of the pennant, and I still have the paper pennant to use on another project.  I coloured my image with Distress inks and a gold pen, and the background was created using the Fall Leaves embossing plate - I was really pleased with how this turned out, as its quite a subtle effect and didnt overpower the image or the rest of the design. 
 
I stamped my sentiment on one of the new sentiment frames as these are a perfect size for cards, and  layered 2 of Hearts, Mini Flourish, Dimensional leaves and a button,and finally added twine, card candi and a charm from my stash to finish.
 
All dies used on this project are:
 
 
You have until Sunday to join in, so lots of time left to enter our challenge and join in the fun, and dont forget there is always fresh daily inspiration from the other talented members of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.
 
I hope everyone has a smashing week, and thanks so much for visiting our blog today.
