'Your birthday is especially sweet' - card

#birthday #sweet #high tea #kaisercraft

Hey everyone! I have been wanting to make a project with Kaisercraft's high tea collection but I struggled to think of a design until *BAM* sudden inspiration! XD

I got a bunch of Kaisercraft stuff from a friend for my birthday (my friend's know my crafty obsession all too well...) including some gorgeous kraft lace! I just had to use it as soon as I could! I also got the 'High Tea' papers and collectables in the goodie pack I won for my entry for Kaisercraft's April Blog Challenge!

I used a 6 x 4.25 inch Kraft notecard for the base. The strips of patterned paper are 7/8 inch x 2 3/4 inch, I picked the papers and arranged them so that there was a balance of colour on the card front. The sentiment was also from the paper pad; I decided to make it stand out more by adding a strip of white cardstock behind it to create a thin white border around the sentiment. To add some interest I adhered a piece of lace using some double sided tape and I also added some flowers and leaves from the collectable pack to finish.

Materials used: High Tea collection (KC) - paper pad, collectables | Kraft lace (KC) | 12 x 12 inch Kraft cardstock (KC)

I have to admit, I don't really craft that often with bright colours such as pinks and yellows (I am very much a 'cooler colour' crafter, I just really love blues and teals) but I intend to change that, keep on the look out for a bright explosion box coming your way soon...
