Mad for Plaid


Welcome
I love seeing some plaid on a holiday card...how about you?
This one came together so easily using the Buffalo Plaid Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by cutting a piece of white cardstock and placing it onto my Make Art Station, then positioned the Buffalo Plaid stencil over that.
  • I decided to make my card monochromatic, so I inked it up first with some Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink, then added some Barn Door DOX ink, keeping it into just the center of the panel.  I kept most of my inking to the middle area and faded it out along the edges.  
  • I splattered using my white Posca pen to give a snowy look to my card.
  • Next, I took the panel and die cut a circle from the center and placed it into my Misti to stamp the sentiment and the little vines around it.
  • I die cut another white circle and glued them together.
  • I glued the plaid background onto a piece of red cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base.
  • I foam taped the circle back into the center of my inked background.

Here is the stencil I used:

A beautiful and bright monochromatic look using this pretty plaid stencil Karen, and I love the darker centre area with the sentiment and it stands out beautifully backed in white and raised up with the foam. x
