Rustic Plaid Christmas Snowflakes

by Joanne James14. October 2023 20:46

Today I've a quick post with a card I made for a couple of challenges which gave me the opportunity to use up some of the retired bits and pieces in my stash - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I saw the layout that I've used on today's card over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown last week but didn't have time to play along, but no matter - it was perfect for this warm and cosy (retired) Festive Farmhouse patterned plaid paper, along with a trio of rustic retired wooden snowflake embellishments. I added them to a piece of neutral coloured ribbon and tied this with some Cherry Cobbler twine, to which I added a little tag featuring the sentiment from the 'Brightest Glow' stamp set - this was a fun way to add a sentiment without obscuring the plaid:


I'm linking this card up over at Global Design Project #GDP415 for their current 'pattern' challenge and I'm playing along over at SUO Challenges where they are making cards with a masculine theme. I know this is a Christmas card, but I think the rustic feel makes it a perfect masculine card; I hope so anyway, because I made this with a male relative in mind!

No visual summary of the key products used on today's project as most of them are retired - I will provide links to the online store for those that are current below.

Enjoy the rest of your evneing and I'll be back tomorrow with my projects for the new challenge over at The Paper Players. Until then, happy stampin'!
