Beautiful Christmas Cards using Perfectly Plaid - Video Tutorial

In today's Video I show you how to create these cards. They all use the Perfectly Plaid stamp set, but it may not be immediately obvious where I used the Tree stamp :o)

Sometimes it nice to do something a little different with a stamp set and I chose to do that with this one today.

I used the Tree stamp on the small centre background panel just to add a pattern.

I love how shiny and bright these cards are, just perfect for Christmas :o)

I used our new Delicata Pigment Inks on all these cards. This first one uses Golden Glitz.

These inks are gorgeous! And .... they dry all on their own. We have had metallic inks in the past that didn't do that :o) It only takes a few minutes too, so you don't have to wait long at all.

All the cards are identical in design and layout, I just changed up the colours. This one uses Celestial Copper.

The Trees were stamped with Night of Navy ink on to the panel and then the leaves were coloured using the Delicata inks. I used an Aqua Painter brush for this.

I also coloured the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series paper used for the background of each of them. This all took some time, but the remainder of the cards came together very quickly.

This is the card I created in the Video. I used the Silvery Shimmer ink for this one.

I really like all three of them, so no favourite this time :o)

Here is the Video ...

Excellent idea you had, re-envisioning the "feature" stamp and using it as a background.
