Papercraft Star 22


Another week at Papercraft Star, and here is what I have this time. The challenge was tough, a lot of things on it, bling, a handmade embellishment, a ribbon, a die cut, a Christmas tree - whew !!

I don't usually tell you a whole lot about my cards, since they are pretty obvious (I think) but this time ....

Our sponsor this whole month has been Kraft Outlet, and do I ever love these products !! Today I used quite a bit of it.

The "tag" envelope is actually one of their envelopes, just sealed, then cut very close to the left side. I punched part of a circle into it. Luckily that gorgeous postcard, also from Kraft Outlet, fit in it perfectly !!

I scored the background paper with my wonderful MS scorer, love that puppy. The handmade embellishment is the flower I die-cut from TH's flower die-cut - two requirements in one !! Hey, wait a minute - and bling in the center, that makes three in one !!

The postcard I put a "stamp" (aka, rub-on) on, doesn't it look so real. And I filled in the words Post Card in bronze glitter pen. Stuck a little bling brad on top the top, and hand wrote the message.

Everything I double inked, first with the Ranger Mustard Seed, followed by Ranger Vintage Photo.

I spent a lot of time thinking about this particular challenge, and a lot more time playing with it!
It looks fairly simple and straight forward after all of that, but I hope you like it ! One of my most favorite Christmas cards EVER !!

Challenge is open now, until noon on Saturday - I would love to see what you do with this one !!
