Candy Cane Plaid

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.
