Tis the Season to Get Krafty

Today, I decided to break out the last 12×12 sheet of Striped Kraft cardstock (from Taste of Textiles) in my stash. I’ve always wanted to try stamping directly on the Kraft and then coloring in with white pencil. I’m not sure if that technique has a name, but I’ve always wanted to do “that”.

As I said, the card base is striped kraft (from retired Taste of Textiles) stamped with the tree from Season of Joy in Stazon Brown ink. The snowman is from Snow Buddies, stamped in Stazon Brown ink and colored in using Watercolor Pencils.

In the background, I stamped the snowflake from Snow Buddies in White Craft ink. The glittery swirl image, from the same stamp set, is stamped in Palette Glue Pad, then stamped on the paper. I added Dazzling Diamonds immediately after stamping. Along the branches I used my MS Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter to make snow.

Along the bottom of the card, I took whisper white card stock and tore it for a snowy effect. To make it even more sparkly, I ran my glue pen along the torn edge and added more Dazzling Diamonds. Although hard to see in the picture, I also stamped “Merry Christmas” from Christmas Greetings in White Craft ink on the 5/8″ Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon. Then, I wrapped the ribbon around the white card stock and adhered it to the base.


  1. Great card – I love everything about it!
