Stampin' Up! Wrapped in Plaid Christmas Card for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop




Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a sketch challenge. I can't wait to see what the other team members created. Hop along with us at the bottom of my post.

It's Christmas in August again!  I used what I thought was called the Wrapped in Plaid Stamp Set to create my card BUT, it's Perfectly Plaid!! Sorry, there was no time to change my link and we are still getting used to the catalog which came out two days ago! While I'm at it, there may have been a little artistic license involved as I flipped it!


Over at ABC Christmas they have a challenge that involves "P" is for Pine Trees so my trees will work for that.

My card base is Very Vanilla. I cut a Very Vanilla mat so I could emboss it using the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder. I sponged the trees lightly with Mossy Meadow ink.

I cut a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Whale of a Time 6" x 6" pack that resembled branches. I cut the larger piece of DSP from the Brightly Gleaming 12" x 12" pack. I ran a piece of Old Oliver ribbon around the seam. That's from All the Trimmings Ribbon Combo Pack. I secured it with tape on the back and adhered the front to the card base with liquid glue.

Using Gold Foil and a frame from the Ornate Layers Dies, I cut a mat for the sentiment and mistakenly picked up a scrap of Whisper White rather than Very Vanilla. I didn't realize it until everything was adhered to the front with Dimensionals and glue dots! I'm on a roll with not being perfect!

The inside is plain and simple. I had a piece of DSP left over so I adhered it to the side, stamped the plaid tree in Granny Apple Green and stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow. Card done! Craftyhazelnut always has a weekly Christmas Challenge. She's on #501 this week. She also has a monthly Patterned Paper Challenge. Stinkin' Inkers has a monochromatic challenge at their site. There was a problem with Blogger Thursday, which is when their challenge usually posts, and the problem was finally solved August 8, Saturday. So, my card is not really back dated :-)


I hope you enjoyed my card today and thank you for joining the hop. Clicking on the "next" button will take you to Eva Dobilas. Clicking on the names below will take you directly to the other team members and their projects.
