Get Cozy

Good Morning
Since I already had my Plaid stamp out on my desk from yesterday's card, I decided to use it again.
I am just loving the plaids this year.

So, I placed a piece of red cardstock into my Misti, positioned my Plaid stamp over the paper, inked it up with some black Versafine ink and stamped.  I repeated that a few times to get a nice dark, crisp bkg.
When the ink was dry, I rubbed it all with my anti-static bag and stamped this large snowflake with Versamark in the corner and white heat embossed it.  I took some diluted white acrylic paint and splattered the whole background to add to the snowy look.
I die-cut the sentiment and glued it over the plaid bkg. and added a red button to the center of the snowflake.
I added it all to a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

This plaid stamp is a beauty and woul love to get something similar as it makes a super background Karen. I love the white embossed snowflake and die cut sentiment which stand out beautifully over the top. x

Fantastic plaid cards using your stamp, Karen. I do love the look of plaid ... it definitely gives you a warm and cozy feeling. Beautiful and so versatile depending on the colour of card stock and colour of ink! xx
