Kraft cardstock has always been a favourite!

One of the photos I took of my daughters formal, which is very lovely and called for some pretty things. I decided on Kraft as my base as I thought it gave an instant pop when I put the photo on it. I usually use white but it didn’t give me the depth of colour I wanted. Straight onto red cardstock was too much red.

I added black acrylic paint and then red Nuvo mousse with a doily stencil. Its shiny and pretty. I also have a rose cut file tucked into the side there.
Some tags and hearts, a small paint swatch and some collage paper kept it reasonably minimal. I machine stitched it onto the red card to add extra detail. It has lots of lovely texture, which I like.
Heres some fun tags I made using Vicki Boutins Storyteller Collection. Kraft cut into tags, stamped with black text, fussy cut birds and leaves.
I added a rectangle of patterned paper to the top, folded over and punched a hole. Then added some jute twine. Ive also added some machine stitching on these for the detail.

Hope you give these Kraft projects a go, it really is a fabulous base for lots of things. I have some more ideas with Kraft that Im working on now, so will share them next time.

Stay safe and healthy in the New Year.
