Krazy For Kraft Blog Hop With DeNami Design


Hello there and welcome to your next stop on DeNami Design's "Krazy For Kraft" Blog Hop! If you're on track, you've arrived here from Ruza Rebel's wonderful blog. If not...no worries...you can head on over to the DeNami Design Blog to start at the beginning.

When I think "kraft," I think rustic, nature, cozy, autumn. Those words were the inspiration for today's creations:


I LOVE the new Elegant Autumn Scene from DeNami Design! I layered it over the Houndstooth Background to add a bit of warmth and texture. The leaves are paper pieced (of course!) with a mix of patterns, and I ended up with a bunch of extras, so I added several beneath the rustic bow.

I've seen quite a few people decorating envelopes in the crafty world these days, so I was inspired to create a coordinating envelope for my card.


The leaves (from the Autumn Stamp Set) are similar, but smaller, which works out perfectly for decorating the envelope.

Here's a look at the card and envelope together:
