Our theme for this month, which was chosen by Jane, is A Krafty Christmas. We're looking for cards that incorporate kraft.
For my card, I took some "krafty" paper from a Recollections brown variety pack... because my kraft stack appears to be running pretty low after all those December card-making activities. Guess I need to place a paper order. In the meantime, I hope this is "krafty" enough.
The card above was inspired by a card Kim Hamilton posted for a CASual Fridays Challenge last fall. A few details:
- This was my first time to stamp in color on kraft. Thanks to a trick shared by Jennifer McGuire (to stamp first with white pigment ink) and my MISTI (for those oops I need to restamp moments), I was willing to give this a try.
- When I saw a little white peeking through/under those blue snowflakes, I decided to spatter white pigment over the entire card base; snowflakes.
- The top layer of the word "love" was cut from card-base kraft paper that had been smeared in DI walnut stain.
Hope you'll join us over at Sparkles Christmas.
Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
