Hi Crafty Friends,
It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Kelly Santi our challenge hostess for the month, continues to issue the challenges.
For our challenge this week Kelly has given us the theme of ... Buffalo Plaid!
Create a card using black and white (or any color if you don't have b/w) buffalo plaid as the focal point.
To create my card, I pulled out Scrapbook.com's Slimline Buffalo Check die. I die cut the buffalo check die using black cardstock and then adhered this to the front of to top folding slimline card.
I have made many black and white cards over the years, but I don't think I have made one with a Christmas theme before. It's a little different and I like it.
As you can see I decided to create a Christmas card using the black and white color combo, adding a pop of red and green.
I used Lawn Fawn's Giant Merry Christmas for the sentiment, die cutting it three times from white cardstock and layering the die cuts on top of each other. I layered this onto an elongated oval from Spellbinders.
To embellish the card I added holly & berries using a die from Papertrey Ink.
I die cut the Slimline Buffalo Check die one more time, trimmed it down so I had two panels of two checks wide and adhered this to both edges of the inside of my card.
I added Karen Burniston's new Little Label Pop-up die to the centre of the card.
I added a stamped sentiment (from MFT Stamps) to the centre panel and then added some more of the holly & berries to the to outer labels and smaller ones to the top and bottom of the sentiment label.
I added the circle border which is from the new Border Blends - Trims die set.
