Kraft & Orange

So my evil doublemint twin Chris sent me an awesome bunch of goodies, including the Sew Easy tool - and this is its first outing. I knew I wanted to use up some MME paper scraps, and I decided to go with orange for this week's The Pink Elephant challenge.   Naturally, with the kraft I'm also joining in the "Sew-So Simple" challenge at The Kraft Journal! 


Supplies: kraft paper; patterned paper scraps from Indie Chic, My Mind's Eye; Sew Easy tool (from Chris the Awesome); Jenni Bowlin butterfly; rub-on from stash


After stitching on the kraft layer, I used foam tape to mount it on the white card base. I pierced freehand along the pattern on the patterned paper & sewed that as well, then added THAT layer with foam tape. Lots of dimension on this card. I'm loving the mix of oranges and pops of white. 

xoxo,
Jessi

I love this!! I always thought of kraft and orange as very masculine but this is a totally feminine card. The stitching you added to the patterned paper is perfect!
