Friends with Flair ~ Kraft Card Set

Ooh, another Friends with Flair Friday! And I have another card set made for auction to share...but first, a peek at a new visitor to my craft room...

She is a new addition to the household, much to the dismay of our older cat...and much to the delight of our Great Dane!

She has decided that her favorite roost is the tippy top of the tower on top of the workbench in my craft least when I am in there!

Now, on to the cards! I made another set of cards for auction...this time for the professional group I belong to. I had my kraft cardstock out on my workbench and decided to use it all up! Seriously, I only have a partial page left!

I only have a picture of one card, because this time I made the set and had it out the door in one morning...without taking time to grab the camera! So I used my last piece to make one for myself, so that I could remember what I'd done!

I know that looks like a lot of fussy cutting around the sentiment, doesn't it...but not me!

I measured the square and used the Silhouette Studio software to draw a square slightly larger, welded with circles (subtract) to make the curved out corners. I cut lots of that shape out of kraft cardstock. I used the shadow function to make a larger shape to cut out of the colored cardstock. Then I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the frame and sentiment stamps with the kraft pieces that I cut out. I had a few off center stamps, but not many!

The sentiment portion is on foam tape to give some dimension, and the kraft mat is dry embossed for texture. I did make several sentiments for each card base, that seems to be popular at auctions, so the winner can choose whichever they need at the time.

I love the bright color with the kraft...I guess I'll have to go to the store to get another pack of kraft cardstock...what a trial...LOL.
