Perfectly Plaid Bundle for CTS341

As a member of the CAS(E) This Sketch Design Team, I can submit sketch suggestions for CAS(E) This Sketch challenges. What fun! When I submitted my suggestions early this past summer, I didn’t know what products would be in our 2019 Holiday Catalog. Lucky for me, there’s an incredible suite dedicated to beautiful plaids – I reached for products in the Perfectly Plaid Suite for my project. Here’s my card:

Perfectly Plaid, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, Christmas card

And here’s the banner for the sketch challenge that inspired my card:

CTS341Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Wrapped in Perfectly Plaid. I love a good argyle pattern – it reminds me of a warm sweater (and reminds me that winter is on its way…sometime…soon). I reached for several products from Stampin’ Up!’s Wrapped in Plaid Suite to make this sweet, simple card. The tree and sentiment are punched with the Perfectly Plaid stamp set. The tree is punched with the Pine Tree Punch. Here’s a look at the Perfectly Plaid Bundle: Perfectly Plaid Bundle, Stampin' Up!, 151143You can save 10% when you buy both of these together – who doesn’t LOVE a bundle?! Even if the products carry forward to the next catalog, the bundled pricing goes away at the end of the current catalog. If you love this, get it now. ♥ Here’s a look at the Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper (another must-have):Wrapped in Plaid 6" x 6" Specialty Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog, 149596You can see all of the items in the Wrapped in Plaid Suite by clicking on the image below: Wrapped in Plaid Suite, Stampin' Up! 101014
  • Layer Measurements. When I make a simple card that works well for me, I like to share the measurements I used in hopes that it can inspire you, too. The measurements I used for this card were informed by the plaid pattern, the trees and the sentiment so it might not be the exact same for a project you make with the same layout. Either way, here are the measurements for
    • Shaded Spruce – 4-1/4″ x 11″ (scored at 5-1/2″)
    • Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper – 3-3/4″ x 5″
    • Thick Whisper White – 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″
    • Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper – 3-3/8″ x 3-3/8″
    • Thick Whisper White – punched from the Pine Tree Punch (2)
    • Stampin’ Dimensionals
    • Thick Whisper White – punched from the Pine Tree Punch  &Timeless Label Punch
  • Rich Color Combination.  The colors I used on this card were pulled right from the Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper – all three of the rich colors (along with gold accents) are featured here: Perfectly Plaid, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, Christmas cardCherry Cobbler and Garden Green are a traditional mix of Holiday shades. Combined with Night of Navy, though, these colors take on a new life. The mix of rich red, blue and green are GORGEOUS. If you like this mix of Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy and Shaded Spruce, please save this for future reference:Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy, Shaded Spruce

  1. I love a good plaid, too! Love this as backdrop for your awesome trees! Perfect punch for this sentiment!

  2. Great card ! This plaid paper is SO PRETTY ! And that tree punch is adorable . They make me smile !

  3. I love anything plaid. Always classic and lovely with your trio of trees.

  4. Plaids are so stylish….and so is this card!

  5. Love this pretty card with the big sentiment. Loving the plaids this year. Enjoy your day!

  6. Love the color scheme. It is more Christmas-y than I expected with the addition of the Night of Navy. It highlights the green trees perfectly! TFS.

    • Thank you so much, Veronica! I use a lot of Night of Navy for Christmas but don’t normally pair with red and green. I’m so in love with this plaid paper. ♥

  7. Love the white matte against the plaid!

  8. Never, ever would I have thought I would see polka dots and plaid all in one card and like it. Well, just goes to show you should never say never because I LOVE this card! Only you, oh mighty paper combiner, could make this work and I am in awe!

    • Thanks, Grace! I didn’t even think twice about it because the plaid pattern is so large while the dots are so small. I’m so glad you like it – I always appreciate your comments. ♥

  9. My opinion you can never go wrong with plaid! Love your choice!
