More Kraft Journal


While I was making invitations for our open house I realized I should probably get some photos in the Kraft Journal challenge. One, never let a project leave the house without being photographed ! Two, if it fits a challenge, enter it !

These invitations are being hand delivered to people in my husband's office.

The envelope is simply kraft paper scored and embossed. Very very simple and plain. I wrote on it with white Gelly Pen, and added this darling closure, a treble clef paper clip I bought at Staples. (Thanks to Tracy who turned me on to those !)

The envelope that holds the invitation is a library card envelope I purchased at Kraft Outlet, one of my best purchases EVER, perfect invite holder. I did different colors and different stamps on each one. The black color is Ranger paint dauber, smooshed across the paper a couple times. I stamped and embossed with gold detail power, added some distress inking around the edges, and added some stickles. (I have an invitation inside of it)

The invitation itself was done in Word, cut, punched, rounded edges, then a texture fade with distress ink stamped all over it, and inked edges. I added a little ribbon pull.

Everything is covered in a mist of Marshmallow, and then Gold Glimmer Mist.

Doing different colors and stamps on each card envelope made the task much less boring.

I am so pleased with how they came out. Hopefully the guests will enjoy them too !!

Spencer is visiting today - hearing a (barely) 3 year old trying to say "Abominable Snowman" is pretty hilarious....
