Since the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper first arrived on my doorstep, I’ve been SO EXCITED to play with this gorgeous plaid piece that’s rich with amazing Fall tones. It reminds me of a button down shirt I wore (and loved) in high school – I was really cool in that shirt! Today, I’m featuring this fun plaid in a big way – as a really large panel on a sweet card. Here’s my card:
And here’s the banner for the challenge that inspired my card:
- Love of Love of Leaves. I have a real love for Love of Leaves. Let’s start with how wonderful the sentiment I used on this card is – who doesn’t want to know that they are thought of. I just think it’s an amazing thing to say to someone else (even though it’s inferred on nearly every card you send, it’s still nice to hear, right?). Here’s a look at the Love of Leaves stamp set and coordinating Stitched Leaves Dies: This is an amazing bundle! Even if you don’t have time to make Thanksgiving 2020 cards, you should grab it up now so you have it for Thanksgiving 2021 (or anything in between). Here are some other projects I’ve shared with this set (you can click on the photos to see the original post for each project):
- Double-Stitched in Beautiful Papers. One of the great benefits of the Stitched Leaves Dies is that you can add stitching inside the leaf (if you want) and outside the leaf (if you choose to use the negative image). I cropped this leaf from Whisper White cardstock, leaving a beautifully stitched border when I popped out the leaf. I layered in a piece of Crushed Curry Designer Series Paper that I then ran through my die-cutting machine to create the stitched texture on the inside of the leaf. How fun is that?! The leaf is showcased in a monochromatic, ombré page from Playing with Patterns 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!’s 2020 Annual Catalog. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in this pack of papers:The bold plaid in the background of this card is pulled from the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in this incredible pack of papers:
- Color Combination. Even though the plaid in my background paper is Bumblebee and the page for my leaf is Crushed Curry, they work together seamlessly on the card. The ombré effect of the Playing with Patterns Paper (Bumblebee) offers a variety of yellow tones, dark and soft. I was able to find a place in the yellows that looks great with the Bumblebee background. I love how these papers blend so well with each other. If you like this mix of Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Pretty Peacock as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
