The AAA Cards challenge and Christmas plaid


 Swoon, plaid just seems to go with a Christmas theme. So glad it is part of the AAA Cards challenge for the next two weeks. 
 I pulled out a piece of red plaid patterned paper and the rest was simple.  The square frames were cut with my new My Favorite Things dies.  Love the "Merry" die by Simon Says Stamp cut from red glitter cardstock.
That neat snowflake stamp is by Tim Holtz.  I embossed it with white on black cardstock.  The square it is one is added with foam tape for dimension although that is a little bit hard to see here.
Hope you can play along at AAA Cards.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

A beautiful CAS take on the photo inspiration. The red and black has a lovely sense of drama and the snowflake in the middle is the perfect touch.
