Tartan Plaid

With the internet function in short supply at our home I have managed to do several cards. In fact, I have over 75 Christmas cards done now. So I am in good shape that way. But this card I am sharing with you is one I made using a new NBUS stamp set from Altenew called Tartan. It is a multi-layering set. I also added a flower and butterfly from an older Altenew set called Wild Hibiscus which were just stamped with black ink onto white card stock and added. I did not add a sentiment but will when I finally decide for what occasion this card will be. Notice that little black dot on the card. There must have been a speck on the stamp I did not see after cleaning it and so no doubt my sentiment will go in that area. It will be an easy fix!


I love how this looks. I think it will be among my favorites I have ever made. One nice thing about making one's own plaid background is that you can make it any colors you wish.

Well, have a great weekend everyone. I hope all are well too.

God bless,
Verna

You sure did that stamp set justice. I have it and have only used it briefly to try it out. You make me want to get it out again. Thanks for the inspiration, I love your card!

Lovely plaid, and your b&w images are perfectly highlighted by it. Fun colors on this one, Verna

Wow, beautiful background. The butterflies did not need any color, how daring to leave them black and white.
Great card,Verna.

Your black and white butterfly and flower images really pop against your beautiful plaid background. Love the colors you chose. Sorry to hear your internet problems are continuing; hopefully your new service will do the trick.

I love your tartan background! You did a great job lining it up. Yes, sentiments and embellishments cover a lot of spots and smudges!

That set makes an amazing Tartan plaid! Love the colors you chose for it. That little black dot is hardly noticeable. I'm dumbfounded at how many Christmas cards you have done! I need to get busy with that. I have some, but not nearly enough.
