Merry Monday #245 - Kraft

Hello friends.  Lori is up as hostess this week at Merry Monday, and she would like you to use KRAFT  cardstock on your Christmas cards.


I love this inspiration photo, and if you're going to have gingerbread cookies, you've got to have hot cocoa to go with them!


I used a Impression Obsession image (E8612) for my mug of hot cocoa and colored it with my Copics.  I cut it out with a Lil Inkers Stitched Circle die and then sponged some kraft ink around the edges.  My card base is kraft card stock and then I layered on a sponged with kraft white layer, then another kraft layer stamped with SSS's Holiday Background stamp in kraft ink, and then a stitched banner in kraft polka dot DSP.  A few sequins and a Cherry Cobbler thick bakers twine finished my card.

We'd love to see what you can come up with using kraft cardstock on your Christmas cards this week!  Check out the inspiration from the rest of the Design Team, and then play along with us right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!

This is so pretty Marcia. Love the banner behind the stamped layer! Thanks for thinking of us while my Mom recuperated. She is now home and all is back to normal.
