I’ve always loved natural, rustic things and Kraft papers and bags fall right into that category, so I’ve used them for years on and off.

I followed a link the other day which led to a really pretty card on Kraft, with a hint of turquoise, one of my favourite colours.  I can’t remember the link – sorry and hope I’m not offending anyone – but here’s my version of what I saw and I love it!

The background (Darkroom Door) is stamped in Versamark and clear embossed.

kraft and teal

Have a lovely Easter!

God Bless you
