Kraft Halloween

This month over at the Cupcake Craftroom, Mandy is challenging us to make a Halloween card using her line of More Krafty Kard papers. I have been experimenting with printing digital paper. This time I used the color copy machine at a friends work. I ran through different kinds of textured paper and smooth cardstock. I like the results. For today's project I used some smooth paper that had some sort of black flecks on it and it came through on the Ginger Kraft color that I selected. I think it looks great!!

I have been wanting to ink up my new stamp from Close to My Heart. It was August's stamp of the month titled Wicked. I think this set is pretty awesome.

When I got the email from Mandy saying that we needed to use kraft I was excited because I haven't really ventured into kraft paper. Then I read futher and saw Halloween! Then I remembered the stamp set and loved the small sample that was provided with the set and wanted to make my own take on the card. I love how this came out. I really like the kraft papers in this collection. Be sure to head over and check them out.

Wow! You printed the kraft paper yourself? It's fabulous. I'll have to get some different textured paper and try that myself. Love your card--especially the hat with the little spider hanging off it.

The orange & black pop even more with the Kraft paper. I love the look, but I find it challenging to work with too :)
Love the font, and that's a great sentiment to go with the Wicked hat!
