Virginia's View #25: Plaid

When I saw the theme for this month's Virginia's View challenge was plaid or stripes, I was all in!  I have multiple stamp sets that include stripes in them, and it's really fun to construct my own plaid with them.

supplies: white, green and blue cardstock, stripes (most evidently retired) from Impression Obsession Painted Stripes, Simon's Cupcake Party, Nautical Borders, Winnie & Walter Scenery: Stripes, Hero Arts Cornflower, Navy, Green Hills, and Grass inks, Simon Stitched Rectangle die, Winnie & Walter In a Word: Merry cutaway, Spellbinder's Poinsettia dies, Paper Smooches Holly dies, Darice Holly embossing folder, Hero Arts light green pearl

After stamping my plaid panel, I trimmed it down, and then cut out my sentiment from it.  It was at that point that I decided to make 2 cards for this challenge.  I added the plaid panel to a white card base, then constructed my poinsettia and popped it above.  I think the 2nd card needs no explanation - I just added my die-cut plaid sentiment to an embossed card front and added some holly in the same colors.

Here are the 2 cards separately, if you'd like to see them closer:

You have until November 18 to make something using plaid or stripes, and Virginia has some pretty nifty prizes for 2 winners!
