Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Holiday Cards" Challenge

Jan Del Bone    

Holiday cards are a huge favorite for Jan !  Brown Kraft Blank Note Cards are just the right beginnings for this holiday card.  She added some design paper, and a DREAM Adage Ticket, along with  Cork backed paper with a Headings rubbing and 12/25 Number Flag Banner stickers.  Lace, a chipboard button, a chipboard snowflake, a bow tied with Earthy Hemp Cord and some distress embossing complete this sparkly creation.  Jan has more information on her blog, chai tea n' me.  Stop by and say hello!

Becky Garrison
For the base of her holiday card, Becky used the Lunch Bag Kraft Blank Note Card with Envelope.  The patterned papers are from Lily Bee Design and the tree is made from C-Flute Corrugated Cardboard.  For a cute and whimsical tree topper, Becky used the Silver Bottle Caps, and used an Epiphany Round 25 Shape Studio Tool and Bubble Cap to punch the circle of patterned paper ... it fits perfectly!  Also, note Becky's envelope that is lined with coordinating Lily Bee Design paper.  Lining an envelope is so easy to do!  Please check out her blog Becky Garrison Paper Crafts for instructions on how to make your own lined envelopes.
Tammy Hobbs
For today's "Holiday Cards" challenge, Tammy started with a base of Lunch Bag Kraft from the Kraft Outlet.  On top of that, she pieced together some patterned paper adding a panel of Buff Ivory cardstock where the papers met. She quadrupled some Natural Hemp Cord around the card front and tied off in a knot. The beautiful silhouette image was stamped on a Lunch Bag Kraft die-cut. Lastly some red buttons were added which have been laced with some Natural Hemp Cord.  Please visit Tammy's blog, Creating Somewhere Under the Sun for additional information and photographs of today's Christmas cards. 

Debbie Marcinkiewicz

For today's 'Holiday Cards' challenge, Debbie created a CAS stack of cards -- with a touch of elegance and sparkle!  First, Debbie adhered a base of Buff Ivory card stock onto a slightly larger piece of Brown Kraft card stock.  Next, she embossed a piece of cranberry card stock, inking the edges to create a time-worn look.  To add sparkle, Debbie put a little bit of Stickles onto a paint brush and painted the sparkle onto the raised elements of the embossed pattern.  Debbie die cut an ornament shape from a piece of Buff Ivory card stock and lightly inked the edges with a rose colored ink.  Deb stamped the holly leaves and sentiment using the Believe! and O' Christmas Tree stamps from Paper Sweeties and then added some cranberry Stickles for the berries.  The ornament was adhered to the base of the card using dimensionals and then a snipett of green satin ribbon was added to 'hang' the ornament along with a button and two sparkly jingle bells tied on with Green Baker's Twine.  Please visit Debbie's blog, Simple Treasures, for additional pictures of her holiday cards.
