Getting 'krafty' for Christmas


It was Clare's turn to choose the theme for this fortnight's CCC card and she asked us to use 'kraft'. I've used a kraft card blank on to which I've added offcuts from my Christmas box, including some flocked papers from Anna Griffin - stamping the Personal impressions 'peace on earth' on to one piece with memento rich cocoa, mounting on to gold mirror and then on to the other piece of textured flocked paper. The chipboard snowflakes were free with a magazine some time ago - I was tempted to paint or ink them, but think they fit in with the rest of the card left as they are.

Having been very late for the last CCC challenge I was determined to get this one done on time, especially as I won't have any time tomorrow as we have company coming and I'll need to prepare lunch.

Your lovely card just proves that ANY color can be used for a gorgeous Christmas card. With your kraft & golds, this one looks very vintage & your beautiful sentiment looks so Victorian. Love this card. Your snowflakes were just right, the way you left them. TFS
