Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge # 34
A fun new Christmas challenge and mood board filled with lots of red and white stripes for inspiration has been posted on the Peace on Earth Christmas blog. My candy cane card, well candy cane plaid card, will be shared with this challenge. To create my plaid background, I used the Spellbinders Kaleidoscope Plaid set of three dies times 4 to complete my panel. Originally I cut a square white panel for the center, added my Catherine Pooler Stamp of Approval Candy Cane Lane stamps & coordinating dies and cut my foilage using Tim Holtz Sizzix Large Funky Festive dies glued everything in place and then came to the conclusion that I didn’t like the finished product. I carefully deconstructed everything, tossed the white square, cut four more red kaleidoscope plaid panels, added a vellum oval and completed my card. Things happen! After adding a sentiment strip I decided that I liked this second attempt much better.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.

Beautiful card. The vellum oval showcases the candy canes and greenery while letting the beautiful plaid shine through. Looks like another winner to me!
Aww you are so sweet, Judy. Thanks so much for your support.
Lovely card! I agree with Judy. The vellum is perfect for your candy canes.
So glad you gave it another go, very festive and detailed.
Thanks, Bonnie, I was determined to deconstruct and rework this piece.
I too am glad you gave it another go and I think the vellum is a lovely foil for the greenery and candy canes. Its a great well constructed card my friend.
Thanks, Johanna, it definitely needed the vellum instead of the white panel.
I too am so glad you gave it another try. This is amazing!! Love that gorgeous background. I see another winner here.
THanks, Gerry, i do like those plaids from those dies.
That’s a very cool plaid background you created with die cuts, and the vellum in the center looks great!
Thanks, Lisa, I’ve been using vellum a lot lately.
