Plaid is Rad: Snowy Christmas

Hi all. If you are here, chances are you have come from Poppystamp's November Challenge"Plaid is Rad". (If you're a follower, bless your fuzzy heart. You're also may be wondering who I am, since two years have passed since my last post. Time to get back on the horse.)

Poppystamps has become one of my go-to sources for great dies and an inspiring design team. I just love plaids at Christmas time, so this month's challenge was for me.
Stitched Snowflake Cutouts is a recent acquisition (and it's still on sale for a steal). 

I cut the cream panel twice with this die, and inlaid the snowflakes with gold and green foil paper. The photo to the right is an attempt to show how beautiful the foiled papers are when die cut. It's a knock-out in person. To shake it up a bit, I let the plaid from the background show through in a few spots.

The plaid is a Debbie Mumm paper from JoAnn, and the lovely script "Christmas" is a die from Papertrey.

Thanks for visiting, and I'll be visiting you soon.
