The Kraft Journal is to "Use Your Stash". My stash is ridiculous if truth be told. I don't even know half of what I have and the sad thing is I keep buying more. LOL Mostly paper and dies but they still add to the pile. :-)
So for this card I dug into my stash of Kraft Outlet supplies and came up with this tag pocket card. This may look like a simple card, but I'm telling you it was a major ordeal. Not because its hard, but because it took me forever to decide what I was going to make! :-) It's a simple criss cross card fold with a tag insert and I've used some cute birthday bears from Sassy Cheryl's.
Here are the card deets. I started with a base of Light Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and matted it with Bazzill and My Mind's Eye DP. I did some machine stitching and added a couple of punched borders from Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock and that's pretty much the main part of the card. The balloons are three White Round Metal Edge tags that I colored with Copics. I added some little punched and Stickled stars and a wee bit of white gel pen and then I tied all the tag strings together with some Red Baker's Twine. The sentiment was printed on the Light Kraft and I added some buttons tied with Hang Tag String to the ends.
You can see the insert in the following picture. It's really plain and simple, just layers papers and the top edge is punched.
Kraft Outlet and a shot at Top Three or Feature Me Friday. So grab that kraft paper or Kraft Outlet supplies and come play along.
