If you’re one of those paper crafters who adores kraft paper, you’re going to love this month’s step-ups. What’s so great about kraft? Its special appeal may be due to its ability to impart instant, shabby chic sophistication to anything you’re creating—which is interesting! Kraft’s humble beginnings would not have led anyone to guess that it would one day be valued for its natural, organic beauty. In fact, its toughness and coarse texture historically made it a perfect choice for grocery wrapping paper and all-around, heavy-duty packaging.
Today we’re showing off our Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes with our new Cheerful Daisies Bundle, but feel free to match up these beautiful cards with anything you love in the catalog! It’s hard to go wrong with this amazing, versatile paper.
To create the casual card, stamp the flower tops in White Craft ink, the flower centers in Early Espresso, and the stems in Old Olive ink. Stamp the sentiment with White Craft ink on a small piece of Early Espresso Cardstock, sprinkle it with white embossing powder, and heat set. Position a Linen Thread bow behind the sentiment banner before adhering it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For this version, layer Vellum petal die cuts over the stamped daisies. Stamp the leaves on a kraft envelope in Old Olive ink and die cut. Color the Linen Thread with a Dark Olive Blend for added pizzazz. Finish with gold sequins from our new Neutrals Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
For our most stepped-up project, we decorated the lovely Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes box. Use it for storing cards or better yet—over-the-top gift packaging! We added to the pretty floral focal point by die cutting some of the daisies with a circle die cut from the Stylish Shapes Dies, then popping it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Stunning!
