This is a great challenge because it allows for all styles of submissions. To the right is the inspiration picture for the challenge. This card is being entered for "Clean and Layered."
I pulled out some old Stampin' Up! kraft card stock for this one. What is left of the original SU kraft stash is now down to less than a dozen pieces, so this card was worked up in Crumb Cake before cutting into the real kraft paper.
The red card stock is unknown; it is very close to SU Real Red, but not quite. I discovered a whole pack of this red when organizing the card stocks earlier this week, but there was no label. It is a gorgeous red in natural light.
The dies are a set by Simon Says Stamp. I left the spirals on the tree loose, and pulled them up a bit. The sentiment was cut through the kraft layer, leaving the red to show through.
The pearl embellishments are by Kaiser Crafts.
This challenge runs for two weeks due to the upcoming holiday week. I hope to carve out some more time to make another card for this one.
Thank you for stopping by.
