Cutie Patootie!

Ohhh I am excited with how this card turned out! I have really been having a great time just playing around lately. I was inspired by the current Kraft Journal challenge, and once I'd grabbed my tag and doily (knowing I'd add twine as my third option) I just had fun with it. I wanted to create a vintage-y feeling baby card that would work for either gender (as well as the Open-Minded Crafting Fun no pink/no red challenge!)


Supplies: Crafty Secrets vintage photo clip; kraft tag; Paper Smooches kraft twine; Doodlebug patterned papers; PTI sentiments; Brushed Corduroy distress ink; Versamark and clear EP; buttons from Dress it Up; doily and lace from stash




I was working on baby cards this week, and these papers are from a Doodlebug pad that is primarily boy-ish. Lots of scraps and odd sizes left, so I just chose a few and fiddled around until I was happy with the layout. The doily is wrapped around the side of the tag - somehow creating a cleaner look than trimming the doily. All the edges are distressed. The tag has a smidge of lace and kraft twine tied to hold it in place. 
I usually find that maybe every few months I get a card that I say to myself SELF you rock. Lately it's been happening every couple days - which keeps me making more & more! 

Here's the challenge board for The Kraft Journal: (I used Doily, Tag, Twine, and Top Fold)

What a fun, creative card. I'm just coming out of a creating slump (or should I say a non-creative slump) and I agree it is so uplifting to make some cards that you, yourself love. Thank you so much for entering this lovely card in the Kraft Journal Challenge. Hope to see you each week.
