A plaid background along with gold starts and a gold embossed sentiment are some of the elements on this card today.

I first die the plaid panel using my Sweetheart Layers die, then taped off the areas to make the plaid using masking paper that I cut into strips of different sizes. I also taped around the Sweetheart die as I only wanted the plaid inside the frame.
 I then sponged on the Tim Holtz Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink, doing a heavy layer to get that deep colour. Once that was complete and using Wink of Stella Gold brush I added the fill in the white area. With a gold pen, I went around all the plaid along with all the squares. I stamped the sentiment on vellum paper using gold embossing powder and attached to the panel with vellum tape. I die cut the stars from gold metallic paper and attached, a few with foam squares and also matted the plaid panel with the gold metallic cardstock. 
I have a friend in mind for this card, which is why I picked the Sweetheart frame, she is a sweetheart. It doesn't matter that it is Christmas, it all works.

Thank you for visiting today. I have included links to the products I have used below for both USA and Canada, at no cost to you.
