Make My Monday - Use Kraft


This week at Make My Monday the challenge is to use kraft card.


Here's a card for a one-year-old's birthday and it would have been quick and easy except for one thing....I decided to use my new Pixscan mat with the Silhouette electronic cutting machine.  This was because the baby is half Australian and I found these kangaroos in the middle of some patterned paper and thought they'd be just right. Technology is great ...but you can't rush the learning curve on a new gadget! So learning how to use the Pixscan mat took longer than anything else on this card.

I hope you'll join in the challenge at Make My Monday. 

I'd like to enter:
