Use Plaid for 12 Months of Christmas Link Up

Hi.  Well it's time for another challenge at the 12 Months of Christmas. The Sleigh Belles post their creations on the first of the month and then mid month the Merry Maidens will be here with some more inspiration for you.

My Card 

6" square white base card
 Image - Ike's Art
Joy die - First Edition
Backing Paper - Freebie from Decosses's Dynamite 

I added a png. image directly to the green plaid digital paper, copied and pasted it three times and then rotated it so that it formed corner borders all round before colouring with Promarkers.  I printed the images again, fussy cut them and added them with foam pads. Tonic Nuvo Drops and red pearls finished this simple card.

There is an optional twist to the challenge if you would like to follow it, but mainly the idea is somewhere for you to link up all your Christmas cards throughout the year.  The twist for this month's challenge is to use plaid. If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, use PLAID papers prominently in your card design. While you can also use other types of papers for accent pieces, make sure that plaid features in a big way.   Keep in mind though, that you don't need to follow the twist to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win a $10.00 gift voucher to the Ike's Art store. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Multi-Coloured Plaids.

Pop over to the blog and check out the cards from the other Sleigh Belles and maybe you will be inspired to join in the challenge.

Take care and happy crafting.

Hi Christine,
what a very super card and I love your wonderful design.
Those poinsettias are so pretty.
You sound a whizz on the computer doing all that it's far beyond me and my computer skills.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
