One Card Wonder Wednesday October 2, 2019 - Perfectly Plaid Card


Welcome to today's One Card Wonder Wednesday!  How are you doing today?  Good here!  Just getting over being sick and am glad I have the energy to create this post and show you this fun card!  I have been eyeing this card in the Holiday catalog and thinking about making it.   Today is the day!  And I must say it is a fun one.  I am so glad I took the time to make it.

This card is made using the Perfectly Plaid Bundle which comes with the Pine Tree punch.  Perfect to punch out the tree images from the stamp set.  I also love that it is non-traditional Christmas colors.  Don't get me wrong, I love traditional Christmas colors, but I also love non-traditional colors too.
I love them all!

Look at this card, isn't it cute!  It's not over the top, yet it has enough detail that it is more than just simple stamping.  Whomever you mail this beauty to, is sure to keep it forever!   It is just a little bit smaller than normal so having the banner and ribbon hanging over the edges isn't a slides right into one of Stampin UP!'s medium sized envelopes, PERFECTION!

Here is the link to my video if it doesn't pop up for you.  If you like this card go to my online store and buy the products to make some for yourself!  Thanks for watching!
