Brown paper packages tied up with string...

Well, Kraft and twine really.....


And isn't the camera a fibber? Those two pieces of kraft look very different shades, and yet they are stamped on the same side of the same sheet of card! The textured background paper is from a DCWV stack and the twine is garden twine, which I used instead of bakers' twine for a more rustic effect.

I am sharing this with
Christmas Card Challenges - Colour Challenge
Jingle Belles - Presents
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - CAS or anything goes
Perfectly Created Chaos - Texture   

The parcel stamp is a loose UM from my collection - I can't recall where it came from - stamped and embossed in white. The sentiment is from Lili if the valley.

  5. Beautiful CAS card I have never stamped on kraft will have to give it a go-love the string too-annoying when you post a pic and think it isn't that colour on the card !!!

  7. Hi Jane this is a perfect entry for the Texture challenge at Perfectly Created Chaos. I have my DT hat on today. I'm struggling with getting photos to show their correct colours. The weather is so dismal and electric lighting not much better. I love the addition of the string instead of twine. Very rustic. hugs ValeryAnne (DT)

  9. The color that shows-up is all about the lighting (I hate when that happens) ... but I do adore brown paper packages ... so glad you helped us *wrap* things up at jingle belles.
