Perfectly Plaid & Christmas Layers

Perfectly Plaid is one of the stamp sets that is in the 2019 Holiday Catalog that is carrying over and I could not be happier.  This is such a fun, light hearted Christmas set and it has a matching punch called Pine Tree Punch.  Although it is carrying over into the next catalog, you will not be able to purchase it for 10% after January 3rd so if you love this set, you should buy it before the end of the Holiday Catalog sales period.

The colors I used on this card are Cherry Cobbler, Call Me Clover and Whisper White.  The first thing I did to make it was to use the Christmas Layers Dies and cut 4 or 5 of the snowflakes out of Whisper White cardstock.  I layered these onto of a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  You can see a close up of it below.

Then I stamped the tree and the sentiment in Call Me Clover Ink.  I punched the tree out using the Pine Tree Punch and the sentiment using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I wrapped a piece of the Cherry Cobbler 3/8″ Diagonal Striped Ribbon (also in the Holiday Catalog but is retiring on January 3rd) around a piece of Call Me Clover cardstock and then layered everything together.  I felt it needed something more so I took 3 of the Epoxy Clear Droplets and colored them using my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends.  Stampin’ Blends are great for coloring just about anything and the ink stays on and doesn’t rub off.

I have to say, I have had the honor to take care of my youngest grand daughter, Olivia once a week.  It has been so much fun to take care of a baby again.  Olivia is 6 months old and whenever you look at her, she smiles.  It is the sweetest smile!

Isn’t she just beautiful?!?

  1. I love how you die cut & layered the snowflakes for a real ‘wow’ background! Your darling granddaughter is sooooo cute!! I’m sure that you’re enjoying every moment you spend with her – and she’ll grow up feeling close to her grandma! 🙂


  2. Love the die-cut snowflakes! So sweet. This is a great card. Everything works together so well – the tree, the snowflakes, the ribbon, and epoxy droplets… And, yes, Olivia is beautiful! 6 months is such a fun age, because they interact with you, and that smile is gorgeous. What fun!!
