Christmas Plaid

I originally set out to make a CAS card for the Ribbon Challenge on the DRS Blog, but like most of my cards I wasn't happy with the "simple" look. I kept adding more elements and before I knew it, it was no longer CAS! But, I love how it turned out and hope you do too! 

Here's how I made it:
I started with a red note card base that measures 3.5" x 5". I created the background design by stamping the Open Plaid (631P) with red ink. Stamping it diagonally in both directions created the plaid. I used a decorative border punch at the bottom of the plaid cardstock, and added red ribbon just above it. I added a poinsettia paper flower to the center of the ribbon that I dressed up with a small white button tied with a red and white twine bow to the center. I, once again, used a portion of the Christmas Multi Greeting (341H) for the sentiment.  I love this stamp!

Finally, I glittered up some snowflake punchies and added a red rhinestone to each center. Then I placed them as shown over the plaid background.
