I have just recently started using kraft cardstock more myself. So, when Julia said to use kraft, I knew I had to play. Thanks, Julia for a fabulous challenge.

I am using ODBD Cross of Christ set. I stamped a background image in vintage cream craft ink and let embossing. I also layered the Spellbinders Label 4 images. The label 4 kraft layer I ran through my crimper and then through the big kick to flatten the crimp look some. I sponged the edges in vintage craft ink. I finished my card with some organdy ribbon and pearl domes in the corners.

I thought my use of kraft cardstock with the cream lends itself to a more elegant look with this card. I would never have thought to use kraft for an elegant look, but it works for me.

Stamps ODBD Cross of Christ, CHF Leaves 3 backgrounder
Cardstock PTI Vintage Cream, Kraft
Ink Palette Vintage Cream, dark chocolate
Accessories Nestabilities, circle punches, pearl domes, organdy ribbon, foam tape, foam dots, sponges
