It’s quite a challenge to make a Christmas Card when it’s 102 degrees outside, but I couldn’t wait to use the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and the cutest Pine Tree Punch!  Here’s my first attempt.

Here’s a close up of that adorable Christmas Tree image.

I used Gold Embossing Powder and used my heat tool on my Christmas Tree.  he Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper has gold foil highlights.  I hope you can see it in my photos, but the sun is really bright and it’s challenging to take great pictures.  BUT, don’t worry I’ll be using it to make lots and lots of cards!  The Perfectly Plaid Bundle makes for easy and quick cards.

I know you’ll love it as much as I do!

Remember my Case This Sketch #334 card challenge card I shared it on Aug 13, 2019?  Well, I was pleasantly surprised that

A Little Lace Card

my card was selected as an Honorable Mention card in the Case This Sketch Card Challenge.  You can see the winning card, the favorites and the honorable mention cards  here.
