Love Kraft

Hello blog friends!

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It is very spring like today. Warm, sunny, buds are out, spring flowers are blooming and the birds are singing. It would be fabulous if it could stay like this, but there is always time for the weather to turn cold and wintry again.

As Valentine's Day has recently passed I thought I would share with you the 'Love' card I created. I'm a firm believer that you don't need one over commercialised day to tell someone you love them. Send them a card anytime!

I decided to keep this non traditional by using cream and Kraft colours.

What you need...

Card stock: Kraft, ivory
Embossing folder: D'Vine Swirls - Cuttlebug
Stamps: Falling For You - Paper Smooches
Ribbon: Bare Basics Jute Ribbon - Papermania
Twine: cream
Ink pad: Onyx Black - Versafine
Decorative pins: ivory oval, heart
Pearls: ivory
Flower: Bare Basics Burlap Flowers - Papermania

What you do...

1 Hand cut a large heart from Kraft card and emboss. Mat onto ivory card and trim again.

2 Wrap and tie cream twine around the base of the heart, secure in place and attach to a 10.5cm x 14.5cm Kraft blank.

3 Attach a jute ribbon bow over the ivory twine bow, add a flower and two decorative pins. 

4 Stamp the sentiment in the top left corner and add pearls to the heart.

To give it a more shabby feel, I didn't cut the heart or its mat too precisely and I also frayed the ends of the jute ribbon.

This is quite a bulky card, so for posting you could create a matching box or make paper flower for a flatter look.

Well that's my little make for this time. Thank you for popping by and I'll see you soon!
