Plaid stamping

Today's card shows a technique I've been wanting to try for ages. The current Virginia's View challenge, which is closing in a few hours, was a great incentive to finally sit down and give it a go.

I used a circle die to create a mask for my circle, stamped the lines (Simon Says Stamp) repeatedly in Memento green inks using my MISTI and then die cut and stamped the stag (SOA Candy Cane Lane collection) in Memento rhubarb stalk. I popped up the stag using foam tape and added a little glitter using a Spectrum Noir glitter marker. For the sentiment I used a previously heat embossed Joy die cut (Cas-ual Fridays, SOA Candy Cane collection) I had lying on my desk after cutting it twice while making this card.

I'm linking up my card at:
Virginia's View - 25 Stripes and Plaid

Stamping Sensations - Christmas greetings

SOS 278 - Front and center (use bits and pieces that are on your desk)
