A Krafty Romantic Card with Rhonda

Happy Monday to you!  It's Rhonda here today to host the blog for you.

This week's new challenge is "Keep It Krafty", so I decided to use Kraft cardstock for the base of my card.  I wanted to create something a bit romantic, yet still somewhat suitable for a masculine recipient.

"Always" (A2 sized card)

I started with the base card, then my first layer I used the Lady Kate Edger. Next, I used my Horizon Coved Rectangle Boutique Stacker, then added the Coved Rectangle Scalloped Stacker using Foam squares for dimension. To create a bit of interest I used a Steampunk Corner in the upper left of those layers.


The trimmed and inked Horizon Fishtail Banner was added with foam dimensional squares as well, then the Sentiment Tag 2 was the perfect anchor for either a sentiment or embellishment. 

I opted to use the Dripping Butterfly as a focal point as I find it to be so very pretty!  To finish my card I then applied the "Always" rub-on sentiment directly to the paper above. (Notice the vellum cut of the Sentiments Tag 2?  The little Dandelions are another new favorite of mine, aren't they so cute?!!!
