Today I have 2 cards to share that I created for the last ABNH challenge using kraft cardstock as a focal point. My blog day here always falls after the challenge ends, but I still like to take part and create something. And this one was a favourite because I love kraft cardstock! 🙂
For my cards, I decided to create 2 very similar cards with one big difference. I paired the kraft with two of my favourite colours – Kraft / Black and Kraft / White.
A Simple Hi (Kraft with White)
For this card, I paired the kraft with white cardstock and white embossing powder. The starbursts are embossed in white and then I added brads to all the centers. I wanted to use bright colours for the brads and sentiment so I used my American Crafts Zing embossing powders. (I used all the neon colours so they ‘pop’ off the card. My brads were white and I just embossed them all to make them the colours I wanted.
A Simple Hi (Kraft with Black)
For this card I kept the design almost identical – I just moved the starbursts to the other side and used black cardstock and embossing powder instead of white. The card takes on a completely different look with the darker colour. I embossed the brads again with the Zing embossing powder to give them a bright colour.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.
I’ll be back with the rest of the Chalk Ink girls on the 1st with the next challenge!! 🙂
