Kraft Journal #197


Tall and Skinny is the challenge over at The Kraft Journal and I am going for clean and simple design.  This card measures 20cm x 10cm and I decided to go natural woodgrain for the background which is inspired by the photo at Time Out Challenge. 

As I didn't want the woodgrain to stand out too much, I stamped the MFT Woodgrain in Toffee Crunch.  

The baubles are of 3 different sizes and two are stamped on the acetate and one on kraft cardstock just to give a different variation.  Added some sequins in the baubles to turn them into shakers!  

I am entering this card into the following challenges : The Card ConceptThe Kraft JournalTime Out ChallengeHero Arts Holiday Challenge and Stamping Sensations.

What a wonderful design, Lai-Yoke! I love the tiny shakers you created and making one of the ornaments kraft was a clever idea.

Yes, I stamped the background on my birthday card using a stamp from the Stamplorations Celebrate Artsy set. I like that set a lot!
