Buffalo Plaid

I've been noticing (and enjoying) the buffalo plaid trend I'm seeing this season.  This plaid will always remind me of the Woolrich plaid that my Dad wore when hunting!   I decided to make a Christmas card using it.

supplies: 2 shades of kraft, Schoolhouse Red, and green card stock, Impression Obsession Painted Stripes cling, VersaFine Onyx black inks, Tim Holtz mini Holiday Greens dies, Winnie & Walter In a Word: Merry cutaway, May Arts natural twine

I stamped a big striped background cling vertically, then horizontally, and trimmed the panel out to allow for some of my card base to frame it.  The rest are all die-cuts.  I glued the greens only at the top of each branch to allow the rest of it to stand out a bit from the card, and I used 2 shades of kraft to give a kind of shadow to my sentiment.

Here's another, changing up to red against kraft:

supplies: kraft, Schoolhouse Red and green card stock, Impression Obsession Painted Stripes cling, Hero Arts Red Royal ink, Tim Holtz Holiday Words die, Hero Arts wreath die from a 2016 card kit, jingle bells and Natural twine

Same process as above, just added different embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by - have a great week!

I can definitely see the Woolrich plaid in the first card; also love the kraft background for a totally different look. Both are so natural and pretty looking.
