Kraft Card - 1

It is my eldest daughter's birthday at the end of this month, and my grandson's just before that, so I thought I'd better get a move on.  I hate being caught out at the last minute.
I've finally sourced some Kraft card and I am in love with it.  I knew I would be.  You know you see pics in magazines and blogs and think, 'I could make that, if only I had...' 
Well, here's my first ever play with it:

My daughter's obviously going to be 30, hence the numbers in brown Memento ink.  I've rounded off the corners, which I'm doing on most of my cards these days, I've noticed. 
The papers are October Afternoon (Thrift Shop) and I've cut the sentiment out with my Sizzix die.  You can't see it very well, so here's a close-up:
Kraft card is very rough and ready compared to normal card (they don't tell you that in magazines, do they?)
but it's beautiful stuff to work with. It goes very well with red cardstock and papers. You can colour straight onto it with Promarkers too, and it doesn't show through, which is a bonus.  Expect to see lots more in the near future.
I am making Christmas cards, honestly, but it's taken me a while to get started as my style has changed quite a bit since last year.  Hopefully I'll have the first (of many) to show you tomorrow.
Thanks for dropping by today.  Your input is much appreciated.

  3. Jane, this is such a great card. The colour scheme is perfect, the red goes beautifully with the kraft cardstock and the patterned paper, and I like the way you have the main paper element coming from the top of the card. Fab! x x
