Plaid Christmas

Happy Saturday.
Meet today's card.  I wanted to try and stamp some plaid for Christmas and this is what I came up with. 

I began by placing the plaid stamp from Lawn Fawn into my Misti, simply inked it with black Memento ink then pressed onto my paper.  I used a red Tombow marker to draw in some extra lines which helped the whole piece pop by adding so much more interest to the black plaid.
I stamped this vintage looking Santa from Flonz with my Misti again and fussy cut him out so I could mount him to the black and red background.  I stamped the sentiment to one side and mounted the Santa with pop dots right into the middle.


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
Have a great weekend.

Fab card, love the black white and red combo. Actually, that reminds me of the joke - What's black, white and red? A sunburnt penguin!
