Make it Monday with Kraft Outlet

A new challenge opens today over at the Kraft Outlet's official blog, The Kraft Journal. You have until Sunday April 3, at 6:00 p.m., Eastern Time to enter your project in our "Flowers" themed challenge to be eligible to win some nice prizes, like blog buttons, store vouchers and even a chance to be featured at The Kraft Journal.



I created a couple of cards for this week's challenge one that I am posting today and you'll see a coordinating card from me on our Thursday Trigger post as well.  I also made an adorable matching gift bag (all created for my youngest daughter's 19th birthday... but while the bag was adorable, the photograph of it WAS NOT...so no picture to post on that...drat!). At any rate, the "Flowers" theme inspired me to use patterned paper (Crate Paper) with a bold floral motif. The card base and an accent border are both cut from Brown Kraft Cover Weight Paper . That pretty little crown stamp is from the Tweety Jill Journey to France Stamp Set. I also incorporated Red and White Baker's Twine for the outside of the card and used a Card Sleeve Envelope to hold a gift of money for the birthday girl (because what teenager doesn't like to get money, right?). I actually created this particular card for Cait (my middle daughter) to give to the birthday girl. Cait wanted to give Cydney money for her birthday to help fund a trip Cyd is taking to Flordia in a few months.



I hope you'll have time to hop on over to The Kraft Journal and check out the other Designer inspiration pieces for this challenge...and then get on into that craftroom and create something to share with us. You'll find the link to the challenge right here.

LOVE your card, Beth! That floral paper is so beautiful, and I love that die cut in the center. Lovely touch with the punched edging and wrapped baker's twine, too. The envelope on the inside for a money holder is just fantastic. Great idea!
Wanted to let you know the link from The Kraft Journal to your blog isn't working. Don't know if you want to tackle Blogger to get it fixed, though. ;)

Too bad the picture of the bag didn't turn out...it was awesome! I loved how all of Cyd's friends kept touching every little thing on it.

Gorgeous card Beth. Love the money holder on the inside.

And Thank God that blogger fixed their issues. I was about to scream yesterday! :)

This is great Beth! Those papers really catch your eye and I love the idea of using the card sleeve on the inside of the card. Very clever girlie. Hugs!
