Kraft Typography 'Welcome to your new home'.

Good morning from a sunny Spalding,

I'm hoping the weather holds until the 2nd, as I'm going away in my camper for a week. Now I really don't mind it being a bit cooler, seasoned camper now, ;) but I do prefer sun to rain. Anyway, thought I'd update my blog while I have time.

Today's card is still with the typography style, but also in the Kraft style too. I love both themes at the moment and needless to say, most of my cards seem to be following this theme.

My brief for this card was to do pretty much anything, so thought I'd give it a rustic feel. I designed the card in CA2 and utilised various letter styles from numerous digikits, but the images and backing papers are from the 'Shabby shed' digikit. I love the shabby shic feel to it, really lends itself to the kraft theme. The topper itself is flat, no decoupage, just shadows. I'm always a bit in awe as to the 3D and shadow effect you can create on CA2, they're so realistic.

The edges of all the layers were distressed with Tim Holtz antique linen and I used raffia instead of ribbon, in keeping with the garden and kraft theme.

To finish I added some card candy and made a matching box. Hope you like it, my friend certainly did.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:-
