A Krafty Christmas at The Kraft Journal


I hope everyone enjoyed their long holiday weekend! I spent the weekend decorating the house and getting crafty. I made a few Christmas cards, a mini album, and a little paper lantern for my daughter's room. I'd say it was a pretty successful weekend!

Speaking of Christmas cards...

This week at The Kraft Journal, we are playing along with a new challenge theme - Christmas Cards! What a perfect way to get a jump start on some of your cards for the holiday season!

I absolutely adore the combination of red and kraft together! It's such a classic color combination! I used papers from The Girl's Paperie, some pretty Light Kraft Cardstock from The Kraft Outlet and embellished with Garnet Stick Pins, a button with Green Baker's Twine, and pretty layers of a poinsettia bloom. 

Here's a close up of all the embellishments...
