Kraft card butterfly birthday

I wasn't sure about Kraft card to start with but having used it a few times now I'm starting to see how good it can be.

This is a birthday card I've made for a friend. I used an 8 x 8 Kraft card blank and put a black mat onto it. I've just bought a Kraft card pad with all the papers having a black pattern printed on them, so used that for the next mat. I'd nipped into The Works to kill some time and came out with a bag full of goodies - as you do!

I then die cut 4 square black mats and white layers using my Tonic Layering dies. The butterflies were cut from red card using the Tonic Rococo Butterfly Sprig butterfly, and the red sentiment is from the Tonic Miniature Moments Sentiments dies. These panels were added using foam pads to give a bit of dimension.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like the card, and if you've time to leave a comment I'd really appreciate it
