Plaid Christmas Card

Christmas is in two days!  I managed to get all my Christmas cards done.  I usually don't follow trends in terms of new stamps, but something about all the plaids I'm seeing really made me want a plaid stamp.  I am so glad I purchased it.  I can see myself using it a lot.  Here's my card:

It's hard to tell in the picture, but the tree is spritzed with a shimmer mist.  It looks really pretty in real life. I embossed the background, mounted the embossed panel on a white card base, and added a die cut star and sentiment.

  1. I can attest to how pretty this looks in real life!! Thanks again for sending this beautiful card to me, Sheila! You were very clever using your NBUS to create a unique plaid Christmas tree!! Happy Holiday Hugs! Darnell

  2. Gorgeous card, Sheila. Love the Christmas tree. Thank you for joining us at CAS on Friday and hope to see you in 2018 again. Luv, Wilma

  3. What an excellent way to use that plaid stamp! I've seen it around in Blogland, and I think this might just be my favorite way to have used it. Really made this tree shape stand out so pretty against the snowflake embossing. It's just gorgeous! TFS & Happy New Year. Hope your holidays were pleasant. Hugs
