TMR #145 Tartan & Plaid.

Hi everyone our challenge today is for 

Doesn't it conjure up all manner of beautiful things, especially for Christmas?

My card today is made up of dies and foiling. I hope you like it. I started foiling the sentiment with the WRMK foil pens, with the Cameo, then finding some matching plaid paper and plain card. I couldn't believe my luck when I chose this paper to find the exact same shade of plain card, which was only just big enough for the car die. I must have made something and just placed the piece in the pad, as you do? I thought that was a lucky find LOL. Anyhow, a sheet of mirror card, some die cutting and it was finished, sounds easy? How come easy takes so long from starting getting things together to finishing?
plaid paper - First Edition "Merry Little Christmas"
sentiment - WRMK foil pens
plain card snippet - ?
tree was a snippet also, from the same pad as the plaid.
mirror card - The Range
car and tree die, star on tree die - Simply Cards & Papercraft # 181 mag freebie
snowflake die - Amazon
circle die - Tonic
horizontal die - Tonic rectangle
reindeer die - I think it's Simply Creative 

I'm not entering for the prize, I'm really trying to reduce my stash.

Oh, my! What a great card! I think I must dig around and find my old truck die cut set! You know, the one I just had to have and searched and searched for it and then, alas, never used it! Your colors and the plaid paper are fantastic!!

Kate said...

Wonderful card - and how lucky that all the papers worked so well together and were the right size!! This card was meant to be!!

Hey, Faith!
I am catching up (in reverse order) on all the cards I missed! Love this! I think tartan is so great for use in masculine themed cards! Very nicely done!

I have one truck die (an old TH vintage truck)maybe I can play around with that!
