Plaid With Gratitude

I was away for most of the day Sunday but my stamping friend Christine (chrisations.ink) was the featured stamper over on Split Coast- so I just had to CASE one of her cards. I chose this pretty card.


I liked the plaid designer paper she used and wanted to use my Off Beat Background set by Waltzingmouse Stamps to make my own stamped plaid DP. The beautiful fall wreath and sentiment are from the Peace and Plenty set. I used Circle Nestabilities to cut them layering the sentiment over the wreath after sponging the edges with chamomile ink.

I used different stamps and colors than Christine and placed the sentiment inside the wreath rather than on a separate panel.

A friend of mine at work commissioned me to make 10 thank you cards - so this will be one of them. I think he'll like it.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Julia,
I love it when you show how to get the best of the background stamps - I was looking at that set on Claire's web-site just this morning and didn't "get it" about the graph paper stamp. Wowie, your plaid is just beautiful! It makes sense now.

This is a wonderful card. I wish I could commission you to make me 10 thank you cards! I'm afraid that's exactly what I need to be doing and all I can produce is Christmas cards (or so it seems!).

Hugs.
