For my project I stuck with the background idea but spiced it up by using my embossing machine to create a subtle heart design on the kraft. I also tried to bring more interest by using the negative cut of a heart shape I had cut with my Cricut. I then backed the heart with different strips of bright colored washi tape. I love how the bright colors seem to pop against the kraft background. I finished off by punching a heart out of the leftover kraft and pop dotting it off the background providing some dimension while keeping the focus on the bright colored heart.
For some reason I had a very hard time getting the kraft to show up the way I wanted it to in the pictures. It seems very dull here. Time to take some editing classes. :)
