That's Krafty Thursday! #2

Hi there! It's time again for another That's Kraft Thursday! Don't ya just LOVEEE this image? Oh my, I think he's just SO STINKIN cute! I made this card for a coworker of mine who is a total book lover!! I needed a little thank you card for him so I decided to use this stamp and place a book store gift card inside. Great idea huh? This little guy is Spencer the Bookworm from none other than Stamping Bella. Uh, isn't that name perfect for him? SPENCER!! (wuv it!)

So I stamped Spencer onto some Papertrey Ink CS and colored him with my Copics. I used this great DP from Recollections that I picked up at Michael's recently. Have you guys seen this paper line? It's all color coordinated! Kinda like Granimals!! ..member those?? It's like paper matching for dummies!! Yeah, I'm cool with that! I cut little Spencer out with my circle Nesties and matted him with another Nestie circle using SU Soft Suede. Man, am I gonna be bummed when I run out of this color. LOVE it! I then used my scalloped circle Nestie with some SU Kraft CS for the bottom mat. The two DP's are separated with a border of SU Kraft CS punched on both sides with my Fiskars border punch and then stitched to the mat of SU Soft Suede. I added this cute checked brown ribbon and adhered it to the card base of SU Kraft CS. The sentiment is from Stamping Bella too and fits perfectly with my theme and gift idea. How's that for That's Krafty Thursday!? Be sure to leave a comment below and stop back by tomorrow for Bellarific Friday. Have a great day!
