Ever since I made the fishing card the other day, I've been using kraft cardstock for everything! I really love the look of kraft, so I decided to try making a Christmas card with it, and this is the result. The stamped image came from my friend Michelle of StampersDream.com and I believe the stamp is by Penny Black. It appears that it might be sold out because I'm unable to find it. He sure is a cute little guy isn't he?
I colored the image with Tombows and matted it with pale blue and mint green cardstocks to match his hat and scarf. I added some dazzling diamonds to the wreath and pom-pom for a little sparkle. You might be able to see that if you click the photo. I outlined around the image with a brown marker and stamped the sentiment with a $1 spot stamp from Michaels.
So tell me what you think of using kraft for a Christmas card? Does it work or not?
It's a rainy Monday here in SE PA, but my husband mentioned that the dust was beginning to fly again, so I guess it was time for another good soaking :) This rainy Monday isn't going to get me down, though - I'm stamping :)
