Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper, Jennie (aka CraftyJennie). I chose this card as my inspiration:
I focused on Jennie's:
-Christmas greenery with red accents
-wreath to tree
-position of focal image and sentiment
This Concord & 9th plaid background set is so fun! You can just use the big background stamp, to get a gingham look, or you can stamp the thin stripes as well to add colour and interest. I thought it would be fun to mask the stamp and just stamp a plaid border on the inside of the card. I shortened the front of the card so that the plaid is visible. The card back is 4.25x5.5 and the front is about 4.25x4.25.
I finished the card with the tree and ornaments from Modern Christmas and Cozy Christmas from Ellen Hutson, stamped in the same red and green that I used on the plaid background. Like yesterday, I used my MISTI to stamp the tree several times to ensure good saturated coverage.
