A Krafty Christmas at Sparkles Christmas

It's the start of a new month (White Rabbits!) and that means the start of a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas.

This time our theme is A Krafty Christmas so we would like you to use some Kraft card on your project.

I've gone for lots of texture with a Kraft and cream colour scheme and no stamping. The background is embossed with a magazine freebie folder - I don't think I've used this one with Kraft before and it seems to work really well with it, giving a very sharply defined result. The two die cut trees are embossed with different folders - an old Cuttlebug one for the larger tree and a Tim Holtz one for the smaller. Some vintage style lace and a die cut snowflake finish it off.

I am sharing this with
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - anything goes or for a man or boy - I always think Kraft has a masculine look, even when teamed with lace.
Also with the very belated Rudolph Days challenge at Scrappymo's - the card I originally intended for it has already been posted now and entered into several other challenges so you've probably already seen it.


  1. Your kraft Christmas card looks fabulous. I love all the texture and the beautiful crochet ribbon you chose.
