The Kraft Journal #47!

 Hello sweet friends and welcome to The Kraft Journal's #47 challenge - 'Christmas Cards'!

I am excited to be here today to share my 4th and final Guest Designer Project for the month of November!  I love to make cards with an unexpected surprise for the recipient!  This Christmas card has a Ghirardelli Peppermint Chocolate slipped into the pocket - yum!

I used a Mini Kraft Merchandise Bag available from The Kraft Outlet to hold the candy.  I clipped off the top with pinking shears so that the striped candy wrapper would peek out of the top of the envie!  The front of the envie was decorated and wrapped up pretty with some Red Baker's Twine!  

The sentiment is stamped on a x-small Grungy Prim Tag.  Strips of scrapping stickers were adhered to a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock to create the base of the card ... and viola!  A sweet treat ... yummy to give and receive!!

I have thoroughly enjoyed joining the kraft-y teamies this month as their Guest Designer and sharing some kraft-y inspiration with you all!  I look forward to joining the team permanently in January 2012! 

Until then, happy kraft-ing, my friends!!


Challenges for this card:  
The Ribbon Reel #16 - anything
Stamptacular Sunday #140 - anything Christmas

This is another stunner. Love the idea with the candy pocket. Gotta snatch that idea;) Love the vibrant colours and that some of the papers and the twine is actually the same colour as the candy bar. Magnificent. Thanks for playing at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and good luck. Hope to see you back sunday for a new challenge. Bettina xx
