A Krafty Santa
I'm so happy with how this card came out. It was a total experiment for me. I LOVE LOVE kraft paper and I wanted to get some kind of unique look with it. I decided to cut my kraft paper into 1/2" strips, ink their edges and weave them together. I then cut a section out for the front of my card and popped it on top of a card base and some of the last little bit of the Basic Grey Jovial paper pad I have left.
The image is one I found on the internet and the sentiment is computer generated. I made the flowers out of the Basic Grey paper and added the leaves and pearl trim to the little bouquet. I ruched some seam binding and topped it with a pretty piece of twisted trim. I hope you like it as much as I do.
