Kraft cardstock

Just a quick update on what I've been up to. 
Have I ever mentioned before that I'm in love with natural brown (recycled) kraft cardstock? :) I so well am! 'Twas time to top up my cardstock resources :))) My new order off eBay:


I ordered two new card formats this time - narrow tall cards and large size cards. Very happy with these card blanks :)


Most of my Christmas cards this year will have a natural brown card base. It just seems perfect for vintage and Scandi-themed cards. It blends well with various colours and it's got that rustic and hand-made feel too. Ideal for tags as well.  


But the discovery of the month for me has been this paper!


I sooo much love it!!! It was a must-have for me. I love everything about it - the colour, the patterns, the texture, the thickness, even... the smell :) I've been looking for papers of this style for a long time and now Lili of the Valley shop sells them. Gonna cut some them up tonight for some new cards! :) Noticed my new lovely small set of "stitchy" stamps? :) A little treasure in my stamp collection. 
Back to my crafting now. Have a good evening and thank you for your visits x x x

  4. I bet that those cards actually go with a lot more things that just plain white and they look more crafted, rather than just "shop". Have fun!!
