The Kraft Journal #176 Shabby Chic

Happy Happy Monday!

This is my 2nd post of the day, for my Paper Sweeties Release Rewind click here.}

For this week's Shabby Chic challenge at The Kraft Journal this week, I had fun using lots of goodies from The Kraft Outlet.


I started with a Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock onto which I added my patterned paper I found in my scrap pile that I thought worked well. Before the patterned paper was added I brushed a touch of cream paint to shabby the cardstock up a bit. I added a Large Kraft Shipping tag to the center of the card adding more cream paint to the edges.  A length of Strawberry Shortcake Bias Tape was wrapped around the card front and tied in a bow securing a Sand Boutique button with Pink Baker's Twine.

Next using Buff Ivory Cardstock, I layered a scalloped die-cut circle adding  coarse glitter to the outside edges for a decorative touch. My next layer consisted of a Canvas Corp corrugated Flute Tile which I used to die-cut a heart and I added more paint. Continuing on with more die-cuting now using Lunch Bag Kraft Text Weight Paper and a circle from Buff Ivory Cardstock.  Not too noticeable in the picture, I used DeNami Designs Solid Rose Accents in the center circle.  All these layers make a beautiful foundation for her layered butterfly cut from Vintage Dictionary Pages.  Lastly, I stamped the Thank you sentiment from DeNami Designs onto a piece of Natural Twill Tape and fastened with a few small staples.


Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your Shabby Chic creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

Have a wonderful day!
