Kraft Journal Sketch 156


Happy Thursday, peeps!  I have a masculine birthday card for you today, courtesy of The Kraft Journal’s sketch 156:

While I love Sale-a-bration and the mini catalogs, I sometimes think the sets from the regular catalog get forgotten, so I am trying to use them more often.  You see lots of the other stuff out in blogland, so hopefully you’ll see something different here!  I pulled out Soho Subway DP and Postage Due for this one:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Postage Due Shabby Birthday

I stamped directly onto the Soho Subway paper, grunging it up with Gorgeous Grunge, and distressing my little postage stamps a bit; I even pulled the paper layers apart so they had a lighter feel to them:


I added some burlap trim, distressed my mats, and added a little sentiment banner, and it was done!  Now it’s off to the mailbox to its receipient!

This is what I call the “bossy face”…


Ahhhh….this one is better!

  2. I'm with you, LeAnne. I love the products in the regular catalog and enjoy seeing your use of them. Great masculine card. I can never seem to make use of that burlap trim but you incorporate it perfectly. Have a great day!
