Kraft at Christmas Card Club

 Hello there! I hope the new year is treating you okay. Believe it or not, its the first outing of the Christmas Card Club for the year today. I always feel its a bit crazy at this time of year, but come December I am always glad that I made the effort! The first theme of the year comes from Kate and she has asked to see Kraft Card. 

I made 4 cards this time - using stamps from Claritystamp, versamark ink and white embossing powder. Each image was stamped onto Kraft, set and fussy cut before being paired up and then matted and layered onto kraft, clarity/lavinia paper and also some sheet music. I also added a little string bow to each too. 

My mum has made two cards for this theme too - The first includes spellbinders dies but mum can't remember the brand of the deer die. The second involves a stamp from Chocolate Baroque. 

Its a good start to my stash for December! And to my mums!
Have a great day!
