Simple Plaid

I feel like December is just flying by!!
Happy to have most of my holiday cards mailed out but a few more to go.  
I am loving all the plaid I am seeing out in the stores and wanted to create a card using some.

This is a really simple one that can be whiped up in a hurry.  By die-cutting from a patterned background, you have a cut out to make another card....I haven't gotten that far yet though lol.

So onto my simple card details.
I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock and placed it into my Misti.  I positioned the Plaid background stamp over my paper, inked with some Black Versafine and stamped.  I repeated that process to get a rich, deep impression.  I dried the ink then using the Deer die from STAMPlorations, I cut it out in my Cuttlebug.  I glued the plaid onto another piece of white cardstock and set aside.
Next, I took a narrow paper strip and stamped the sentiment, then pop dot mounted that over the deer cut out.  I glued it all onto a red piece of cardstock then onto a heavy white card base.
I added 2 red buttons for interest and to help pull out the colour from the red in the bkg.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

That plaid stamp is so versatile Karen and looks great in black with the touches of red on the white. Such a super idea to make a cut out of the stag's head too. A beautiful card. x
