Krafty Coffee

Today's challenge over at Daring Cardmakers is to use kraft cardstock on your project. I love kraft so this wasn't a difficult one for me! For those of you in the UK, I usually get the ribbed kraft recycled cardstock from PDA as I like the texture it has.

I've made a little gift card holder rather than a standard card. It's basically the same as the pop up one I did a wee while ago (in this post - link to instructions for it there too) but I've changed the proportions and used a standard A4 sheet so the piece that holds the gift card is just a little shy of half way on the folded bit in the middle.

Stamps (Cornish Heritage Farms):
The Cafe (Shady Tree Studio line)

Paper:
Simply Smooth
Kraft

Ink:
Brilliance by Tsukineko (Coffee Bean, of course!)

Other:
Copic markers
Antique copper mini brads (Making Memories)
Circle punch
Sewing machine and thread
Linen thread

Thanks for stopping by!

Hallo Joanne, This coffee is exactly what I need at the moment - before getting on with my krafty card. A really lovely idea to make this little gift card holder and the texture of the cardstock is very appealing.

Great card, Joanne! Love your clean style!

Thanks again for the sweet package yesterday--really touched me that you would do that--I will love using each rose...

Just saw your masked card sample for the new CHF train set--so fabulous! I've never done that much masking--you're so good at it!


Thanks again, my friend!

I think it's actually illegal to have stitching that neat you know?!

Fab Joanne, as always xx

It's gorgeous Joanne. Your white looks like leather. I agree with Kaz. I'm sure you've committed an offence! Are these bubblies ganging up on you today or what! hehe..xx

I love the little brown brads they remind me of coffee beans. Beautiful creation as always Joanne.xx

Thanks for your response on Splitcoaststampers. You do a bit of instruction in your posts, so I can learn about supplies. Are you able to get supplies and stamps locally or do you have to order them?
