making your own invitations using kraft paper

I've already given you a few ideas for using scrapbooking paper to make wedding invitations, but what if the metallic paper I used is too sparkly for you?

How about using brown kraft paper instead?
The same rules apply if you're going to use vellum, but kraft paper is a little bit more flexible - most inks will work beautifully with it.
I stamped a pink leaf pattern on the craft paper, and then used black ink to stamp the word "love" underneath it. I used a floral stamp on the vellum. The design didn't photograph that well, but using multiple layers of stamps can be a great way to customize invitations.
