----------------------------

To give you even more ideas on how to stretch your kit...I used some other supplies that are not included but most likely you have something similar in your stash.

My first card features a Red Hot, In The Navy, Kraft, and White color combo.   No pattern paper was used!!  I actually created that striped background using 1/2" strips of In the Navy on a piece of white card stock that was then layered it on a piece of kraft.  This is one of my favorite color combos for Nautical themed cards!

 
GKD Supplies Used:
Stamps: My Anchor Mini Kit
Ink: GKD In the Navy & Kraft
Paper: Pure Luxury Card Stock - White (Heavy Base), In The Navy, Kraft, & Red Hot
Tools: Double Stitched Circles (Cottage Cutz), Scor-Buddy
Other: Foam Squares


My next card does feature Charcoal Brown, Warm Cocoa and Kraft color combo.  The pattern paper is from the GKD Pure Luxury Casual Friday pack.  I love using a monochromatic design when creating masculine cards.

 
GKD Supplies Used 
Stamps: My Anchor Mini Kit 
Ink: GKD Charcoal Brown 
Paper: Pure Luxury Card Stock - Charcoal Brown, Warm Cocoa, Kraft
and Pure Luxury Casual Friday Paper Pack   
Tools: Double Stitched Rectangles (Cottage Cuts), Mini Misti, Scor-Buddy
