That's Krafty Thursday!

I am officially declaring Thursday's on my blog as "That's Krafty Thursday". Ok, so each Thursday I will post a card using Kraft paper in one way or another. Whaddaya think? Ya'll know I LOVEEEE Kraft paper so this shouldn't be too difficult a challenge for me.

So here's my first card for That's Krafty Thursday! Aint' he cute? He's tryin' to hide from your oven!! {he-he} My hubby and I took a motorcycle trip this past weekend and as we passed a strip mall, I saw this design with these little squares on their roof and I thought, hey, I really like those squares turned on their sides!!! So I decided to incorporate that onto my card. I used a square Cuttlebug die that has this stamp edge along with this great DP from Cosmo Cricket and I adhered buttons tied with twine where the squares overlapped. I stamped Tucker the Turkey from Whipper Snapper onto some SU Very Vanilla CS and colored him with my Copics. I used the same DP to mat him with and used my Fiskars Stamp Paper Edgers to cut him out with. I thought he needed a little somethin' else so I did some faux stitchin' with a brown pen around the edges and around the edges of the card base too. I printed my sentiment onto a piece of scrap SU Very Vanilla and used my Martha Stewart tag punch to punch it out. Then to finish, I used this great new striped ribbon from Stampin Up and added my tag below. Now THAT'S KRAFTY, huh?
