Kraft for Christmas

Hi all - just a quick post for Merry Monday
Lori challenges us to use kraft cardstock on your Christmas card. 


I have plenty of this color and decided to pair it with white, plus a touch of green.

Kraft with snowflakes
Supplies: Paper - Hero Arts kraft, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Embossing folder - Darice Snowflakes and Flourishes
Dies - My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints 21, Hero Arts DC168 Winter Cheer Tag Set by Lia
Stamps - Hero Arts DC166 Merry & Bright Tag Set by Lia 
Other - Foam tape, ribbon by unknown, green ink from a Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit

I die cut the kraft cardstock then embossed it and adhered it to a top fold vertical A2 card. I played around with a few die cut snowflakes but decided to add my favorite Hero Arts ornament/tag. A scrap of ribbon and I was done! Be sure to check out the fabulous cards by the Merry Monday Design Team.

Hope you have a crafty week and thanks for stopping by!!
