Good morning! I was recently doing some browsing on Pinterest, and came across some pictures that caught my eye combining plaid and gold. Yesterday, this idea popped into my head, and I had to RUN and go make it before I forgot! I'm not the only one who ever does that, right? Anyway - here is the result - and I LOVE it!
Part of this idea was inspired by the new CASology Challenge - Merry:
Also linking up with this weeks Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Make it Sparkle:
I started off by using my Lil' Inker's Merry and Bright Holiday Greeting Die to cut a window right into my card front. (I messed up and cut it upside down the first time - so this is the second try! Haha!) I then die cut the same thing from gold cardstock, then trimmed it out with my paper trimmer leaving a thin border around it.
I went through my Christmas paper pads and found a plaid paper that was perfect and attached it behind the window. Finally, adhered the gold portion very carefully. So simple - but I love how it pops!
Here are links to the supplies I used on this card - and a great big MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone! Hope your day is filled with special memories and time spent with family and loved ones!
