Thursday Trigger for Kraft Outlet

Today's Thursday Trigger at The Kraft Journal is for our current "Flowers" challenge and is a birthday card I created using patterned paper and embellishments by Crate Paper. The card also features a small shipping tag from the Designers Special Natural Tag Assortment  that I stamped with one of the crown images from The Tweety Jill Journey to France stamp set and then tied up with a natural twill bow. All of these highlighted products are available for purchase from Kraft Outlet.


I created this card from a 5 x 12 inch piece of patterned paper that I folded to create a 5 x 5 cardbase. The additional two inches of patterned paper I folded again to create some interest in the inside of the card (an idea I got from a current issue of Papercrafts magazine).


I used my circle punch to create a cut out that allowed me to stamp the sentiment for the inside of the card as well. A small rubon flower (also Crate Paper) helped keep the "Flower" theme flow from the outside to the inside of the card.

Don't forget, you still have plenty of time to enter our "Flowers" themed challenge. Simply post your projects before Sunday April 3, at 6:00 p.m., Eastern Time to be eligible to win our prizes.
