Warm & Cozy


Hey Everyone! How was your weekend? I hope it was great. Today, I am sharing a card inspired by Loonie Stamper's Challenge, which was to use plaid. I created my own plaid design using one of the stamps in Papertrey Ink's Background Basics - Retro set. I spaced the lined stamp and used various ink colors and angles. Plaids can make you feel warm and cozy, so I found this sentiment and added it! What do you think?!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Card Instructions
  1. Make an A2 card with dark chocolate cardstock.
  2. Trim white cardstock into a rectangle and stamp plaid design.
  3. Corner round one edge and tie ribbon around.
  4. Trim plum pudding cardstock and adhere to card base.
  5. Adhere plaid cardstock to card front.
  6. Stamp sentiment and adhere.
  7. Stamp heart, cut out, and adhere.
  8. Using a pen, draw a dotted line along the bottom of the card base edge.
  9. Corner round bottom right card base.
