I enjoyed using kraft cardstock so much on Christmas cards for today's challenge that I actually made three cards. One of them used patterened paper (I KNOW!!!!), and one was a one-layer card (no surprise there). You'll see both next week. But my favorite by just a smidge was the one inspired by the awesome Kelley (AKA keuby at SCS) and her fabulous one-layer krafty holly card (third down on this post of her blog).
Because my kraft cardstock allowed the Bic Mark-Its to bleed through, I ended up doing layers and OH.MY.GOSH. Can you believe how that ticket punch totally makes this card special? I simply could NOT resist.
And why, yes! That IS red Stickles for the berries. Thank you for noticing! That's two days in a row of bling-on-kraft, which makes my heart go pitter-patter.
I think it's pretty funny that Mary Dawn's Christmas Kraft card is, indeed, one layer, while mine has three. I'm going to CASE hers because I have that set and it's an awesomely clean-and-simple card. So click on over to My Pink Mexico to check it out.
