Kraft - Autumn Greetings

The challenge this week is to use Kraft paper in you creation.  Play along in the challenge and link your card to the company blog for a chance to win a gift certificate to the online store.

Hi it's Roxie here today with a quick and easy card, I partially embossed the top panel, placed three rows of decorative tape and colored the die cut flowers and attached with tacky glue.

For a fast assembly of the flower I cut one in black and remove from die saving only the outline. Cut the second in white and do not remove the pieces from the die until after I place one sided sticky label paper larger enough to touch all the petals on the top and leaves on the bottom.  I then pull it out of the die and it's easy to remove the outline piece and replace with the black outline previously cut.  I color the white while the black is in place because it doesn't show but you could color before adding the outline if you want a lighter colored cardstock. 

Copic markers: leaves - G29,28,24,21, blossom center - YR18,16,15,14, petals - RV29,25,23,21 with YR12 over all colors

Tape: Bella Blvd - gold dotted, Amy Tangerine - pink
          Foam tape to pop up the panel

Paper: unknown Kraft, Beckett Expressions Radiance, Paper Hallow (local store) black

Wonderful design, I love the way you only embossed part of the background and how you made the flowers.
