Krafty Christmas

I L-O-V-E kraft paper.  I'm sure it's mainly because it's trendy right now, but I'm cool with that. ;)  I've got two krafty Christmas cards to show you in this post, so come and take a peek...

Card #1~

For these fabulous challenges~



I've used a sentiment stamp by Inkadinkado, collage stamps by Rubber Stamp Tapestry, liquid pearls by Ranger, a clear glitter gel pen by Sakura, pearls by Studio 120, a red Sharpie (colored pearls), a border punch by EK Success, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

Now for card #2~

For these fabulous challenges~




I've used a sentiment by Inkadinkado, collage stamps by Rubber Stamp Tapestry, kraft card stock by Paper Shelter, red pearls from my stash, and inks and papers by Stampin' Up!.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you like what you see and that you take a little time to create today!  HUGS and merry stamping to you all!

I would get slightly panicky if I'd run out of kraft paper, I feel I use it all the time! These are two beautiful cards. I think you did a great job making the CAS one, and your other one has a warm Christmas feel to ii. Lovely,
