Pick Three at the Kraft Journal

It is time for the Pick Three challenge at the Kraft Journal this week.  I ended up with 5 of the elements.

I started with Buff Ivory Text paper from the Kraft Outlet, running it through my Cuttlebug with a Swiss Dot embossing folder, also by Cuttlebug.  I then used the DTP technique by lightly rubbing the yellow ink pad over the raised dots and then sponged some more of the same ink on the edges.
After cutting out the image (by Unity) with a Spellbinders Oval and layering with orange cardstock, I sewed on the button with some of my favorite olive green twine from the Bright Hemp Cord collection.  Three strands of the same twine covered the seam between the two papers. The sentiment is Verve and cut out with a MFT banner die cut.
The list of elements is green, yellow, white, button, washi tape, cross, bunny, die cut.  Lots to choose from and we would love to see your card. Pick three or more and enter the Kraft Journal challenge before Sunday 6 pm Central.  You may win products of your choice from the Kraft Outlet.

  1. Such a pretty Spring card! I love the swiss dot embossing on your card and that flower image is so pretty! Thanks for playing along with us at Scrapy Land Challenge #13!

  2. Visiting from Kraft Journal where the link for this post gives me an error that post does not exist when I click on Gramma's Room. I was able to find post. Like the flower card. Like the coloring of the flower image. Like the way you embossed & inked. Like the layers. Like the banner popped up.
