Krafty Christmas

Hello and happy Friday!

So I am looking for a challenge to enter and I find Reverse Confetti (of course) wanting us to follow this sketch:

I also found this inspiration photo at The Card Concept:

I start my main panel of stamping and heat embossing...darn I stamped it crooked. Cut another piece of Kraft card stock and tried again....same results!
It now dawns on me that it is an optical illusion because of the stripes. Get out my handy dandy T-ruler...yep, it's straight...but it doesn't look straight! May have to rethink stripes from now on.

I love the look of this Clean and Graphic card!

I think it looks great! nice and straight and bold with those white lines. I really really love it! Good to see you playing with us at The Card Concept!

Great card. If those strips make it look crooked, I didn't notice, not even after you mentioned it. :)

I love the tag and how you used it in your take on the challenge.
