3rd Week of DCM Dares!

I think this must be some kind of record for me, completing DCM dares 3 weeks in a row.

This week is was Jo's turn to Dare:

Using Kraft cardstock :) Either as a card base or somewhere on the card - if you don't have any you could use some card board such as corrugated or even a brown kraft envelope...


Well, this dare was right up my street as I have been using a lot of kraft card and paper on my cards recently.  So much so I came up with two cards:

First up is another addition to my Christmas pile:






Ingredients:
Brown kraft (parcel) paper; Basic Grey Fruitcake and Wassail papers; coffee cup liner cut with a Nestabilities die; burgundy twill ribbon from local habadashery; tree cut from felt using a Sizzix die; string and brads from stash; calendar designed in Photoshop; Fiskars scalloped lace punch; inking and stitching.

The second card is one of the always difficult 'Man' cards:






Ingredients:
Kraft card base; patterned paper downloaded from SummerTime Designs (fathers and fedoras kit), coffee cup liner; lettering cut from my old jeans using Cuttlebug alphabet and Sizzix Star dies; screw head brad from stash; stramped greeting and inking and pen stitching.
 
Thanks for looking,
