Kraft Delight! (Two kraft happy cards) & Artful Delight kit reveal

  I really enjoy kraft card stock; it seems to work well with any color scheme.  I wanted to play along in the current challenge at The Kraft Journal:  try something new.  Santa took advantage of the black friday sale on the Cricut Imagine.  Yes, I was very good this year :)

  Can you believe this machine comes with three cartridges plus pre-loaded images?  I just had to try it out, and look what I made:

  The faux stitching is pre-printed on the diamond mat, but I re-traced with my black marker for a little more  "pop."  I inked the edges with my black ink pad too.  Then I added my own faux stitching with my marker to the bird and branch.  I chose the "layers" option on the imagine for added dimension.  I actually printed out the bird 3 times: the first is glued down flat, the second is popped up, and the third I fussy cut the wing and popped it up too.  The orange seam binding is from my December Artful Delight kit.  Then I layered on a kraft card base.  My sentiment is from My Pink Stamper "Punny-licious" set.

And the kraft happiness did not end there!  My dh's cousin (and his wife) will be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary on Tuesday.  They are two of our favorite people in the whole world.  My DT sister, Abby (I think of her as "Fab Abby") created this card using the Artful Delight December kit, and I just had to CASE it.  Here is my version:
The December card kits sold out awhile ago, but you can still get the scrapbook kit!  The kits are loaded with goodies for hours and hours of entertainment.  The kraft card bases I used above (and envelopes) are included in the January Artful Delight kits...here is a little peek at both the January SCRAPBOOK kit and the CARD kit:

**EDIT: Leeanne forgot to add the Pink Jute in the picture. Each kit will include approx. 4 yards of Pink Jute from Really Reasonable Ribbon.**

Visiting from Jaihart Link Up Party.
Imagine getting something that wonderful with the Imagine. I had bought the Imagine at the WalMart Black Friday sale. It did not work. They did not have a replacement and Provocraft was offering me a refurbished one but hey I bought a new one expecting to get a new one & one that worked also. So, I returned it and will stay with the Cricut.
