Kraft Card

As I have probably said before I am a great fan of Gabrielle Pollacco. Her latest project for Scrapbook Diaries is just gorgeous and she has made a video tutorial. I have tried to use some of her techniques but on a smaller scale and I have had to improvise as sadly I don't have access to some of the products she uses if I could afford them. I love the Dusty Attic wood pieces but as the challenge for Marianne Design is Kraft Card I have used this for some of the embellishments as well as the card itself.

I have torn the the edges of the paper and a v groove in the top then used Faber Castell Gold Champagne Gelato round the edge. Gabrielle has used something called Prills which I confess I have not come across before so I have have used instead Stampendous Frantage Shabby White round the groove and bottom right corner. I have stuck some lace under the groove and the right side before fixing to the card. Fortunately I have lots of oddments of lace in my stash which I got from Nottingham Lace Market many years ago.
I used the following Marianne Design products, LR0130 Doily in white card and in Kraft card CR1201 Circle, LR0285 Anja's Vintage Corner, LR0111 Swirl, CR1336 Leaves, DF3416 Marrakesh Trellis and DDS3329 Daisy Dancing who I have coloured with alcohol pens. I have used a bought flower and added a large pearl gem for the centre and some smaller ones on the swirl.
 I do enjoy this style of card but I need practice. Still I hope you like it.
