Old World Charm with Banners for Christmas

Banners For Christmas


Tartan Plaid from the Warmth & Cheer Paper Stack has to be one of my favorites in the Holiday Catalog. I love everything Scottish —including dogs. Plaid paired with the holiday tradition of mistletoe sweeps me away to Edinburgh, land of the castles, kilts and cattle.

To create my card, I first reached for the red plaid, knowing I was crafting a Christmas card. But the Garden Green and Delightful Dijon spark the same old world vibe, too. I love them all.

Just Stamp Tips

Basic Black as the card base allows the tartans to take the reign. As untraditional as it sounds, Basic Black is just as festive as green and red.

Gold Foil peeking from behind the plaids makes the card royal.

It’s all in the details — the Very Vanilla oval was cropped with the new Stitched From the Heart Framelits.

Stamps and a framelit from Banners for Christmas made this project come together lickety split. For the banner, I inked in Basic Black and Cherry Cobble. For the mistletoe, I inked in VersaMark and used Gold Embossing Powder. The mistletoe was watercolored using Garden Green and Wink of Stella, Clear.
