Even though the 4th of July is over I couldn't resist playing along
with the challenge at
"Patriotic Pride".
I created this card with a patriotic color scheme.

 I just love using the 
Close To My Heart
 3 x 3 Kraft envelopes to hold tags.
Here is the tag that can be removed from the envelope.
I started with a Kraft base and covered it with patterned paper from 
the Elemental line paper packet.
Then I stamped the tag and envelope.
I cut out the flower on my Cricut and stamped it with the 
coordinating flower stamp.
I adhered it to the top of the tag, topped with a Kraft doily and button.
Then I tied some twine around the envelope and topped it off with a corrugated star.
 Close To My Heart supplies:
Kraft CS, Elemental Paper Packet
Stamps: "Hip, Hip, Hooray" and Art Philosophy Collection
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
Inks: Holiday Red, Moonstruck, and Bamboo for distressing
Hemp Twine Natural
Milepost Shapes and Mini-Medley Accents: Pacifica
Manila tag: Avery Office Supply and MSC small doily punch
Thanks for visiting!

This is just adorable, Lynn! Love the papers and color combo, and of course I truly love the kraft mixed in. Fabulous little kraft envelope and tag. Love the stamping and the big flower. The corrugated star is a fabulous final touch!

Kraft paper is one of my favorites, so you have a hit for me right off the bat! Thanks for joining us at H2h this week! (I also have to say that I'm very jealous that you call a 1920"s Craftsman home HOME :) )
