Abundant & "Krafty" Blessings...

I just LOVE the versatility of Kraft c.s....so it was only natural (pun intended LOL!!) to pair it with my newest favorite Verve set, Abundant Blessings!




I embossed the silhouette flowers (from Abundant Blessings) using Chocolate Chip craft ink and Clear detail e.p. I added some "filler" using another one of the silhouette stamps inked in Sahara Sand. To create the quilted background, I lightly drew lines using a pencil at 1" intervals (mostly because I couldn't sew a straight line if my life depended on it LOL!). Then, I just stitched along the lines and afterward used an eraser to erase any leftover pencil markings. To finish the card, I added some Dew Drops, a sentiment tag (with some natural hemp and ribbon), and a scalloped lace edge (made with my Martha Stewart punch).


Want to win some Verve Bucks to spend in the Verve store? There's still time to participate! Just link your "krafty" creation in the comments on THIS post by September 30th, and a random winner will be drawn on October 1st. If you upload to Splitcoast, use keyword VVPP06.
