CFC76 - Getting Krafty



This week's CAS-ual Friday challenge is to use Kraft.



For this card, I cut and stamped the kraft panel with the million little dots, concentrating them in the centre and spreading them out towards the edges. Then I stamped the Stampin' Up sentiment in black on the kraft panel. Didn't like it. And thought about a new and exciting (for me) way to create a new sentiment area.

I got out my craft knife. Yes, they let me use sharp tools around here (how else would they get fed?!). I cut two slits in my white mat layer and slid the kraft panel through. It's loosely attached, but I wanted it to look quite casual as if it was sitting in there on its own.

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Kate and I are going to see a live production of Willy Wonka tonight with one of my sisters and her two children. It will be a very late night (the theatre's two  hours away, where my sister lives), but we're looking forward to a fun dinner with Grandma and Grandpa and then the show!

Hope you had a great visit with your family! And how was Wee Willie Wonka?

This card is very crafty indeed! I cannot imagine having the patience to stamp all those dots! It looks like store bought patterned paper. Love the bold sentiment too :)

You've done it again......totally unique! I'm sure there is some trick to making those dots look random, but I'm gonna try it anyway. Thanks for the inspiration.

Have fun with Kate.

I thought you were going to say you cut the sentiment off and put the pieces back on either side of the stamped sentiment. You fooled me. Great idea.
