Color of the Day: Kraft

The color of the day is KRAFT. It's a neutral that is often overlooked because there isn't a coordinating ink color. Try using it with the new Build A Bear dies! Stampin' Up!'s high quality card stock is dyed with pure color all the way through, so you'll never get a white core.

Today's sample card uses Kraft cardstock as the base. To add some texture, I distressed the edges of the Old Olive and Chocolate Chip card stock with my fingernail. I also rubbed my Certainly Celery classic ink pad directly onto the Old Olive card stock.

The yellow moon was created using a mask. I cut out a circle and used the negative as a template when sponging So Saffron ink onto the card stock.

Project Supplies:
Stamps: Wandering Words
Classic Ink: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Certainly Celery
Card Stock: Kraft, Old Olive, Real Red, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Stampin' Sponge, 1/4" grosgrain ribbon in Real Red

The "Wandering Words" stamp set is from the Holiday Mini Catalog. If you need a copy of the Holiday Mini, you can download it from the right hand sidebar, or you can e-mail me at and I will mail you a hard copy.
