Plaid for Christmas


If you read my blog posts, once I start making holiday cards, I can't stop.  
Listening to Christmas carols on the radio, happy place.
So meet today's card.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by stamping the Plaid in my Misti using some Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink.  Over the top of that, I stamped the Outline Snowflakes to add more interest.  I think it made it so fun.
  • In my stash, I found this side fold card base...I do a few at a time to have on hand, (instructions found here) so I cut the plaid panel to fit on the card base as per the instructions and glued it down
  • I die cut the snowflake and glued it into the center, then pop dot mounted the sentiment over the snowflake.
  • To finish my card off, I added tiny green gems to all the snowflake points.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
