Red and Kraft Joy

Color Hues #28

Since putting my stuff into my new craft room, still in progress actually, I’ve come across many items I had forgotten I had. The red corrugated paper is one such as is the kraft coloured handmade paper. I shall have to label my drawers and cupboards so I can find it all. Lately I pull open all the drawers looking for something that I know is there but can’t remember exactly where I put it.

I’m trying to get Christmas cards done and it is a slow process although I did manage to finish 7 this past week. Another 100 to go based on my recent count. I figured the Color Hue challenge was a perfect one for another Christmas card and this is what I came up with. The red and white letters are die cut from an Origami set of papers and I used some scrap bits for the punched foliage. Using a red glitter Sakura pen I added glitter to the foliage and to the stripes of red on the letters as well as a few tiny dots here and there. The die used is from Dee’s Distinctively.

We are experiencing what the weather people called an atmospheric river and the amount of rain coming down is immense. It is almost continuous so is very dreary outside. Our view is nothing but cloud and mist.

    1. Glad you like it. My first attempt was a bit bland so I jazzed it up with some glitter and edited my post with a new photo.


  1. Pretty card. Love those JOY letters and your design. You are on a roll with your Christmas cards, Johanna. Have fun settling into your stamp room.

    1. Thanks Gayle. My craft room is still a work in progress and because I really need to focus on Xmas cards sorting it properly has to wait. It is, however, nice to have my own space once more and I can close the door on any mess I make.

  2. Finding that leftover piece of paper was great as it worked so well for this card. Glad you like the card. Weather is improving a bit and we managed a small hike when we got up this morning and stayed dry doing it.


  3. Very pretty Johanna. Love the pp paper for the letters and the corrugated background. This will surely bring JOY to the recipient. Stay safe in the nasty weather.

  4. Now, your weather sounds amazing. For maybe a day or two, so I’m glad it’s clearing up for you. Your card is beautiful. Glad you’re happier with your card after having added the shine. Sparkle does add a lot.

    1. The kind of rain we had was so bad that it seemed as if the sky had opened. Fortunately it has passed through and the next front isn’t likely to be as bad. Glad you like the card.


  5. This came out so well, Johanna! The patterned letters really made this pop! Have fun reorganizing your room. It probably feels like Christmas when you discover things you forgot you had. Thanks for choosing Color Hues to play along with!
