12 Tags of Christmas - #7

I am back again with my project for the challenge sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique, 12 Tags of Christmas - Week 7.

Once again Linda has created some gorgeous inspiration for us to follow and once again I have made a card.  This time I took my inspiration from the plaid.

I started with some red card stock (Bazzill) for the blank and then added a panel of plaid paper from a pad called Good Ol' Sport (Graphic 45) that I found at Tuesday Morning in the US on a visit a year ago.  When I bought it, I never envisioned using it to create something for Christmas - bonus!

I found the lovely vintage online at and printed it, inked the edges with Fired Brick Distress Ink (Tim Holtz) and then mounted it on more red card stock.

The poinsettia was cut from a die (Marianne Creatables) and some Antique Linen Distress Stickles (Tim Holtz) were added to the edges.  The petals were layered and some large seed beads (Dollarama) were added to the centre.

I cut holly branches from the Holiday Greens die (Tim Holtz) and scraps of white card stock.  The Stickles were added to the edges.

I rubbed a Christmas Typed Token (Tim Holtz) with some Classic Gold wax paste (Treasure Gold) and added it to the top of a white organza bow with some red burlap string.


  1. What a delightful take on Linda's original - those sparkly white die-cuts bring it all to life.

  2. Oh, this is beautiful, Cec. I love the use of the vintage image, the plaid is grogeous and the poinsettis is lovely edged with the sparkly gold stickles. What a pretty Christmas card this is! So glad to have you back playing in Week #7. Sorry it's taken me so long to get round to visit.


  3. I love the traditional colors, Cec. What a find at TM; I love that plaid! The image is just perfect for this vintage card. OK, we are on day two of snow here in the south, and it's starting to get a little ugly. Although, Lauren and I had a wonderful time sledding today! Sending hugs!


I love to hear what you think about my work, so please leave me a comment.
