A couple of weeks ago when the Gingersnap Creations color challenge was  posted, I thought, “What kind of challenge is THAT???” That’s because the color challenge is KRAFT!!! You may not have noticed, but I rarely make a project without using Kraft somewhere—usually the base. I find this kind of ironic, because beige is not my color! I don’t wear it, I don’t decorate with it, and for the most part, I despise it! So why do I reach for Kraft card stock over and over again? Because it’s so darned versatile! It can be masculine or feminine, young or old. You can dress it up or down as your mood dictates. So, a Kraft challenge? I’m all over that!!!

I’ve done a masculine card this time, and you may have a hard time finding the Kraft, because I’ve distressed it to within an inch of it’s life with lots of Tea Dye DI.


I’ve wanted to make an easel card for quite some time, and this idea has been floating around in my head for awhile—bet the lady I bought the vintage yardstick from last week at the antique show would be having a cow if she knew I cut it up!!!

Here’s the inside:


The verse says, “Give a man an inch and he thinks he’s a ruler.”

I plan on doing another entry for this challenge, but the next one will be feminine and shabby chic, just to prove to any non-believers out there just how adaptable Kraft can be!
