I had so much fun deciding on what colors I wanted to use with Tami's awesome plaid stamps.  I LOVE using plaids for Christmas cards.  Just makes me feel all cozy in the winter! LOL

I started my card with Pure Luxury card stock.  I embossed my Red Hot and added the layer of White which I stamped using my Memento inks.  I used three different images from Tami's set to create the different colors on my plaid.  I added a bit of twine and some self-adhesive pearls which I colored with my Copic markers.




For this card I went with a CAS design.  I wanted my birdhouse and cardinal to be uncluttered and pure.  I simply stamped the image and colored with my Copic markers and then used my Scor Buddy to add a frame around it.  I think not only would this make a great simple Christmas card, but could easily be used as a bit of cheer or encouragement. 

Now check out even more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team:

Very Christmas-y cards - my favorite is the CAS cardinal and birdhouse. The framing is wonderful and how do you keep from going beyond the corners when scoring?
