The Kraft Journal. Hope you've gotten a good start on yours already. That clock is a tickin'!
My card was created with a Brown Kraft cardstock base, matted with Buff Ivory. I've used designer papers from Lily Bee Designs.
I've never tried to make a card like this before. It may be hard to tell in the top photo, but the center circle has been removed from the front piece of the card and the image is attached to the inside of the card base. Here's a side view.
Jenni Bowlin banner chipboard pieces which I covered in DP and added puffy paint to for a snow effect. I also used the paint around the circular opening. The banner pieces are threaded on Red Baker's Twine. The snowflakes were punched from glittered paper and attached to the card with glittered snowflake brads. I used a White Round Metal Edge tag for the sentiment and added a Christmas Epoxy brad through the tag hole. James the bear was the first image I colored when I started playing with my distress inks and he's just been biding his time for me to put him on his own card.
