Challenging Myself

More each day

I’m bound and determine to master the use of kraft paper.  I see so many lovely cards made using kraft paper and I just struggle using it for whatever reason.

Color Inspiration: I was inspired to use kraft paper after seeing the color challenge from Cupcake Inspirations this week.  (I must have overexposed my photo a bit as I did use a cream colored cardstock not white as it looks here.)

Paper: Cardstock

  1. That’s beautiful use of the Kraft paper and I really love how you used the negative space of the punch to reveal the sentiment. That’s looks fabulous!

    Thank you so much for playing along with us at Top Tip Tuesday!

  2. I think you’ve mastered Kraft paper! I love it, too, but it did take me a long time to use it well. The image is adorable, you colored them very well. Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.


  3. You did great with the kraft paper! Your card is darling! The image and sentiment is perfect for the upcoming holiday! Glad you shared at Cupcake Inspirations!


  4. Do you know, it took me a long time to use Kraft too – I loved what other people made with it, but not what I made! Somehow it makes me feel better to know others struggle with it too. I think you’ve used it beautifully here – just the right balance. That image is ADORABLE and so wonderfully coloured, and the little label for the sentiment…so very sweet. I love it! So glad you could play with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week 🙂


Thank you so much for stopping by, I just love hearing from you!
