Crafting with the Geometric Kraft Collection

Happy Friday!

I was recently looking for papers that would work for male cards. I've been a fan of the Papermania Geometric collections since they came out and had some papers from the Geometric Neon Collection that I enjoyed using. I just happened to come across a pre loved Kraft collection pack at a good price and had to have it!

My first creation was made for my Mum to give to my brother on his birthday. 

The second card I made was a commission for someone getting a new job. 

There are 3 alphabet sticker sheets in the pack which co-ordinate really well but I found the adhesive wasn't great on them so had to add glue which defeated the purpose. I used chalk ink around the layers to make them stand out a little more. 

For both these cards I've used foiled vellum as part of the layering. I'm loving vellum at the moment, especially if it's foiled!

My final card using the collection was made for a 60th Birthday. 

Thank you for looking and enjoy the bank holiday weekend!
