Question Kraft Paper

I have a whole pack of craft paper and Sahara Sand paper and I just can't find anything that I like to go with it. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what colors they have found that look nice with these 2 colors??

With Kraft, I like Real Red, Garden Green and I think Navy. Actually, I love Kraft. I'm going to make a point to use it this evening. I like Sahara Sand looks good with some greens. I think I used Always Artichoke and liked that. I like Sahara Sand quite a bit too. (Actually, I just love all the colors.)

I've been using Kraft as card bases lately...it looks great with fallish colors like Always Artichoke, Pumpkin Pie, and Ruby Red.

I like Real Red with both Sahara Sand and Kraft, but I don't use either color very often.

Crumple the Kraft paper up and then straighten it back out for a neat effect.

I just did the donut card with So Saffron and Kraft (it's the only card in my gallery). I'm a newbie, so there is a lot to fix on the card, but maybe it will give you an idea LOL

For a subtle look, I used Bashful Blue and Sage Shadow with Kraft and was very pleased with the way they looked together.

Kraft for cards is good, but I use it as a base on major projects like tins, cans, or clipboards and add design pattern paper to it.

It is funny how different people look at colors. Kraft is one of my favorites and I use it all the time. I love it with Hunter, with the reds, almost any of the greens. It really is truly a neutral that goes with almost anything and it shows off backgrounds great. I often find I use it for a card base, layer with almost any color and then use a piece of the Kraft for part of my stamping or design. Be adventurous!
Margaret
ps..looks great with black.

Like Margaret, I use Kraft all the time. It is one of my favorite colors. I used it with Vanilla and Ruby Red for my wedding intvitations.

It love kraft with pretty much any color!

I used Always Artichoke and Chocolate Chip for this card which I designed for the Houston gathering last weekend:
