One Layer Kraft

Hi Everybody,

just a quick post featuring the card I made for my hubby’s birthday in two week’s time.

He is very muck a CAS-Man and he loves trees …

This is what I came up with:

Trees on Kraft 1


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Less is More – more than one stamp, I used a total of 5 stamps

One Layer Simplicity – I’ve been framed, went for stitched border/frame

Allsorts – For the Guys

Cardz4Guyz – Father’s Day/Men in your Life,  went with the Man in my Life

For more information, please watch my Craft-Along-Tutorial Stamping on Kraft Card.

The above card evolved out of this one, which was my original idea to try and do something with running paint as Nick’s been decorating, but I thought it would be a little busy for his liking. See what you think …

Trees on Kraft 2

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments. They are all very much appreciated.

Bye for now and Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
