Keep It Krafty!

Guess what the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge calls for this week? Yup! It is to use Kraft paper so since I love to use Kraft paper with any color range I figured I best try and make a card for the challenge.

This is the card I created while the little one went with Grandpa to town. I found a time to be alone for a bit so I decided to make good use of it.

I used Gina K. Designs Kraft and Christmas Pine card stocks for the card as well as the Christmas Pine ink from Gina K. Designs.

My background on the Kraft card stock was a Cheery Lynn Designs Embossing Plate E143 Leaves to which I added the Christmas Pine ink before I ran it through the Crossover. This made a great background design which I think is so pretty. I layered this onto Christmas Pine before I adhered it to the Kraft base card.

Next I cut out a Christmas Pine Cheery Lynn Designs XL-12 French Flair-Classic die cut for my outer layer and the inner layer was cut with the same set using the Kraft card stock. On the inner layer I stamped the Gina K. Designs sentiment.

Along the bottom of the card my Cheery Lynn B122 Ribbon Eyelet Border Die was cut with the Christmas Pine card stock. I opted to not add the ribbon to it and use it just as a border.

The last step in finishing my card was to add a coupe of  stacked Prima flowers to which I added a button in the center. The button was originally a shank type but I cut that off so it would lay flat on the bloom.

Well, thanks for stopping in and I must say it was fun to be a little "krafty" today. LOL

God bless,


  1. Oh sweet! I love working with kraft too. The colors you used are very popular (and one of my favorites). Nothing like squeezing in a card when you have some quiet time! Glad you have little ones to be with you and your hubby!!! Now I need to look up what a Crossover is :-)

  2. This color combo with Kraft and Christmas pine turned out so sweet. Love the design and how you made a quick one, while grandpa and the little one where gone.

  3. Kraft is so versatile, you can dress it up or keep it fully rustic. Love your color combo and this lovely design, very pretty!
