Some Kraft Christmas Cards..




DSC_0019 DSC_0015 DSC_0018

I haven’t played with kraft paper in a while so I pulled some out and got to work. I have been wanting to do some quilt style cards  after seeing all the awesomeness over at Who Is Tracy Blog. The  third card is a SUPER simple one using a strand of leaves and berry covered wire I found at Walmart in their Christmas wrapping section for $2.50!! I was also playing with those  thin Cuttlebug folders! They do leave lines though.

The papers are DCWV, kraft paper from HL, Stickles, Holiday red ink CTMH, Sentiment stamp CTMH, White Gelly roll pen, and some Nesties.

I really love the red and green with the kraft…and the fact you can use so many patterns in a quilt card. Next time I will not place the squares so far apart. 

Thanks as always for all your lovely comments, they always make me so happy!!

We are supposed to be getting blizzard conditions here in Iowa over the next 2 days with 7-12 inches of snow and 30-50 mph winds. Lets hope the weather men are WRONG….brrrrr.

Keep safe and Enjoy!

My friend, I love what you do with kraft. Your quilt style cards are wonderful. I love how the kraft makes the dps pop. The one with the wreath is just fab. Good luck with the winter storm. Keep warm and scrap!

I don't think your squares are too far apart at all. All of your cards are perfect.

These are beautiful, Sarah! I love the 'quilted' look! And I love Kraft paper, but don't use it as much as I would like. Great job with all the cards!


Amy said...

That is a super cute card. The papers make it so fun and childlike!

Beautiful cards Sarah, I love the quilted look. You've been busy lately with all your cards and I've been in awe though I haven't had time to stop and share some kind words. Good luck with that looks like it'll be a white Christmas!

Awesome! I LOVE these!!

These cards are awesome, Sarah! Love the kraft paper, the quilted look with your faux stitch, and the wreath is awesome. It pays to look around places other than the craft aisles sometimes.

With regard to the weather, I don't know which I'd prefer - your snow storm or our forecast for 15 degrees below tonight. Winter has officially arrived. LOL. Stay warm and safe, my friend!

Very pretty! Quilting looks awesome!!
Yeah they are predicting a foot of snow for us now. It was such a beautful fall day on Sunday..... :) Looks like a snow day tomorrow.
Stay warm!!

Jeanne said...

Fabulous cards, Sarah! LOVE them! Almost makes me want to trudge out to the garage and try my hand at something similar. But, nope, gonna have to admire through the's too cold to head out to the garage craft room (plus it needs to be cleaned up)

I hope you stay warm and safe!

I love the look of your quilted cards. What a great way to showcase all those beautiful papers. And the card with the holly and berries is also just darling. And I too have found those thin embossing folders for the edges to be kind of a pain. I was reading awhile back though about someone who had a good idea on how to make them work better. If I can go back and find where I was reading that in blogland, I'll let you know.

Laurel said...

Ah, these are all so fabulous!

These are just too cute Sarah! Love that wreath!

Cibele Glazer said...

I love both of these cards but the wreath is my favorite. I know what you mean about the cuttlebug folders leaving a line but the wreath is so beautiful I didn't even notice.

We had our first snowfall this past Saturday. Richard and Kara built a very peculiar looking snowman. Enjoy the snow!

whoistracy said...

Oh I just ADORE those quilted squares. Love all the space you left between them. Fabulous! Stay warm there- the storm is headed this way and they're calling for blizzard conditions here Thursday. Yuck.

Christina said...
