2018 Topic 7: Kraft Card
Miriam is so good at showing us variations of ideas, and she nails it tonight. 3 cards with totally different effects using the same image is super-interesting! I hope you enjoy it too! ~ Leandra
Hi everyone, it's Miriam with you today, and I'd like to share with you a trio of cards that I made using Kraft card.
I started off with the intention of creating one card but I started getting excited to try different things and ended up creating three. What I loved was how all three cards looked different and yet they all were made using Kraft card and the same stamps. It was almost as if the Kraft card took on different properties when used with different materials.
I loved how the vellum and burlap created a soft and natural look. The white embossing really made the stamp from ESN25 'pop' and I loved the detail that it showed.
For this card I used Distress Oxides. I love how they looked on the Kraft card.
I kept this card simple using the Oxides and a white gel pen. Again, I used the feather stamp from ESN25 but also the postage stamp from ESN24, which was used around the edges.
I thought this would make a great one layer card.
For my final card I wanted to see how the new Emerald Creek Seth Apter Baked Textures would look on Kraft card.
For the main image I used Patina Oxide Baked Textures. I didn't quite stamp the full image but I was fine with this - it looked amazing - the effect was truly fabulous - I love these textures!! The pop of gold, along with the patina really work well with the Kraft card.
I really hope that I have inspired you to have a go yourself and see what effects you can create using Kraft card.
