I am so excited to be a featured artist for this blog! CutCardstock.com is one of my favorite online resources for all things Krafty - get it ? Krafty - as in Kraft paper... I really like the Brown Bag line of products they carry. Not only do they have the #65 Cover weight, which makes great card bases or scrapbook layout bases, but they also have 70# Text weight papers. These text weight papers are handtinted and very cool.
When I opened the Brown Bag Assortment pack, I was thrilled with the variety of beautiful, rich colors available! For my card, I used the Brown Bag #70 text in Blueberry, Mushroom, Olive and Pepper. I also used the Kraft 65# cover for my card base.
I couldn't resist making my own stripes using strips of varying widths (1/8", 1/4", 1/2" ). The stamps are Close to My Heart, and the inks are Close to My Heart Olive and Indian Corn Blue. I used a 1/4" circle punch on some scrap Kraft cover to make the dots on the upper left, and I used 1" and 1 1/4" circle punches to create the circles on the right. Perfect for a male graduate!
