  7. I own some card stock with a different color inner core, but I don't think I have any kraft core. It looks like it would be great for masculine cards, which I struggle with a bit. :)

  11. Kraft-Core is fabulous for all the reasons you mentioned but I especially love it because it comes in Tim Holtz Classic Distress Colors. Hopefully by the end of the year it will be available in all 12 of the New 2015 Distress Colors too!

  15. I was S-O-L-D at the watering can!! What awesome and endless possibilities caliartgirl!! 😍😍

  16. The versatility of Kraft-core is amazing. The ability to emboss, die cut, ink up, tear up and distress it by any means available makes this paper a must have. I began using Tim's Distress core-dinations a while ago. So, kraft-core is 2nd generation. Dig those metallics! I am pleased with the strength and its ability to withstand deeply etched embossing folders as well as spritzing with water to manipulate the paper. May I add that since the core is colored, you can go crazy. Bravo to you Richelle for bringing our attention to this paper, all of the available colors and its uses!
