Kraft card and pencils

You know it is rather strange that I never coloured on kraft cards before. I'm making cards since good 10 years and yes, I stamped on kraft cards few times at my friend's house, but only big sentiment stamps.

Few days ago I bought kraft cards in one of shops and decided to give a go :). I choose 'Clara' stamp from KraftinKimmie (I think this one is my new favorite for Christmas cards).

I like blue and silver colour combo on my Christmas cards, but this stamp I coloured with reds, greens, red-brown and orange shades, so rather traditional.

In my crafty stash I found papers in matching colours.

First I cut another kraft paper piece to make nice 145x145 mm base for my card. Then cut chosen papers to size I wanted.

For this project I used simple layout with not too many layers - just few squares layered on each other :).
To soften it a bit I add gold thread between them and round sentiment stamp from other KrafinKimmie sets, cut with die and few gems.

This is my first card with kraft paper :)

    1. Thanks Matthew :) Believe it or not I still have lots to learn about it myself :)
