Just a few quick cards today. Whenever I get 12 x 12 paper, I cut it up into 6x6 squares. This has really encouraged me to use what I have. Anyway, I LOVE this Granny's Kitchen paper by SEI, and really wanted to make some Kraft based cards with the paper as an accent. So I grabbed one 6x6 square and got to work. I used the same stamps and ribbon on each card. On the first card, I really wanted to try stamping on some twill. I also wanted to try the sentiment flag style. I was quite pleased with this look. I see it a lot but I've never tried to pull it off. The brad on there is strictly decoration. I used tape to secure the flag, so it's not like the brad serves any practical purpose. For the other card, I went with the same orientation, but used the ribbon as exactly that. I switched up the was the sentiment was stamped. I still have 2 decent sized scraps from my 6x6 square, so I need to do something with those as well!
Stamps: Birthday Basics (PTI)
Paper: Kraft, Vanilla, SEI Granny's Kitchen
