My Time To Craft Christmas Has New Theme Use of Plaid and or Gingham

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! Another theme for use of product that my artsy-crafty heart didn't get too anxious over is this new one for My Time To Craft Christmas. Use plaid and/or gingham for your Christmas/winter occasion card. I don't have an overload of either one, so I went treasure hunting through some of my stash and even a box of mostly wintery blues looking for inspiration. I knew I had a deep red and white buffalo check paper and a black and white version. Went with the black and white. Set out some scrap red CS and pulled a new sheet of black CS for the base. Discovered the small dark red and white check gingham style CS that is recycled packaging from 2 or 3 Christmases ago. Pulled out the red painted wood stocking (letter J) and started building the card.

  1. A fabulous bold card Becca - love the drama of the buffalo plaid over the red and black layers, and the CAS layers over those, which really makes the card work well.
    Stay safe
