Fifteen Minute Krafting

Hello everyone, there is a huge blog post over on the Design Team blog today, featuring more of our fifteen minute cards. This is a bi-monthly feature running on the blog, showcasing quick and simple cards, using stamps from Chocolate Baroque. We are trying to show how cards can be made in fifteen minutes or less and still be fabulous and eye-catching.

I am sharing two projects in the blog post today, both made using kraft card, hence the title of my blog post, please excuse the pun. The first of the projects is a set of little notelet cards, suitable for lots of occasions, and small enough to be gift tags, if I wanted to use them that way. To create the notelets, I took two sheets of A4 card, and measured 9.8 cms across the card, and cut three equal strips of card. I then scored and folded the card strips in half, and rounded all of the corners. I stamped the images and sentiments using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

I have also created a card using a Poppy image from the Flora and Fauna stamp set. I die cut three squares, and stamped a segment of the image onto each square, and coloured it using Polychromos pencils. I mounted the squares onto a strip of black card, before adding the strip to another piece of kraft card. I added a sentiment from the Card Sentiments clear stamp set.

Please pop over to the Design Team blog to see the rest of the post, you will get so much inspiration from the rest of the projects. Thanks for stopping by, xx

I love kraft card as you know and really like the simple black designs on your card set, plant silhouettes are one of my favourite designs in stamps always. Your second card is gorgeous. I rarely use pencil on kraft, but every time I see someone do it, I remind myself I need to use the technique more often. Your colouring really sings out against the kraft background. I really like the way you have stamped the image off centre and yet the three panels all together give a really balanced end result and that bit of black matting sets it all off a treat. Elaine xxx

The colouring of the poppies on the second project just glows against the black contrast of the matting panel & the stamped sentiment. It's hard to pick a favourite here - loving kraft & black together I find it hard to pick a favourite from the two but I think the poppies win by a smidgeon. Love the rounded corners in the first set.
