Brown Craft Paper, or
Ye Olde Fashioned Christmas

My mother-in-law particularly enjoys this subtle brown-craft like paper, delicately printed with delicate ink drawings—the only spot of color is a wreath on one of the buildings, in a subdued pine green. I've had these scraps for some years, but my stash of brown country themed ribbons—most scavenged in odd-lot jobs from garage sales—had finally piled up to the point where I could do a series using this paper.
