You don't generally see a lot of kraft cardstock used here in my little corner of the card-making blog world... partly because the joint card-giver in the house doesn't really like it. (And here everyone says kraft is PERFECT for masculine cards...) But this week Crafty Creations Challenges is asking to see everyone's creations using KRAFT. So out came my sheets and scraps of kraft.
First up, I wanted a housewarming tag for friends:
Kraft base, and some kraft-toned patterned paper, too! Plus, papers from three different paper pads! That's unusual for me. I'm linking this up to CAS on Sunday's current "Welcome Home" challenge.
Then, while I had my kraft scraps out, I made a few quick and simple tags with an old Stampin' Up set and a bit of watercolouring:
Each had to be shaped and designed just a little differently, of course. Finally, I decided to get the *busy* season started with a couple of Christmas cards:
I was pleased enough with the design of the first card that I used it again for a second one! The second time, I decided to try the negative die cut of the tag. Looking at them now, I think I like the overlay of the tag just a bit better.
