The Kraft Journal #97!

Edited:  This card featured on Paper Issues today -- thanks ladies!!

Paper Issues Blog Design


Hello friends ... thanks for stopping by today!  I'm here sharing some cards I created for today's 'Holiday Cards' challenge at The Kraft Journal #97!  Enjoy the peeks :)


For today's 'Holiday Cards' challenge, I created a CAS stack of cards -- with a touch of elegance and sparkle!  First, I adhered a base of Buff Ivory card stock onto a slightly larger piece of Brown Kraft card stock.  Next, I embossed a piece of cranberry card stock, inking the edges to create a time-worn look.  To add sparkle, I put a little bit of Stickles onto a paint brush and painted the sparkle onto the raised elements of the embossed pattern.


I die cut an ornament shape from a piece of Buff Ivory card stock and lightly inked the edges with a rose colored ink.  I stamped the holly leaves and sentiment using the Believe! and O' Christmas Tree stamps from Paper Sweeties and then added some cranberry Stickles for the berries.  The ornament was adhered to the base of the card using dimensionals and then a snipett of green satin ribbon was added to 'hang' the ornament along with a button and two sparkly jingle bells tied on with Green Baker's Twine


Please be sure to visit The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog to check out the amazing inspiration from the rest of the teamies and then we hope you'll give our 'Holiday Cards' challenge a try for your chance to win some goodness from The Kraft Outlet Shop!

Thanks for stopping by today ... have a wonderful stampy day!!

Hugs!
