I was still thinking of the colors from Sunday’s Paper Players card, so used them for a second Christmas card: Merry Merlot, Pretty Peacock, and Cajun Craze.

Plaid Tree

 

I began by stamping the tree from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock on Whisper White Cardstock. The coordinating Pine Tree Punch made cutting a breeze.  

 

Merry Merlot is a nice Christmas color for the card base, which I layered with Cajun Craze, and topped with Whisper White.

The two layers were cut with Stitched Rectangles Dies, and the white layer was embossed with the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.

 

Using the Fab Fri sketch for inspiration, I cut a strip of In-Color 6X6 DSP in checked, Pretty Peacock. Here’s the sketch.

 

Next, I stamped the sentiment (Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set) in Merry Merlot ink, and used a Merry Christmas label die for cutting.

A star sequin found its way to the top, and a bow of Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, completed the sketch.
