Let's create homemade PLAID!


Hi friends!

Today we are MAD FOR PLAID!

This creation is part of the FALL-ing for Wednesdays

card group where each week, we have a theme.

This week's theme:  Create a card with homemade plaid!

The fun part is I suggested this week's theme

 to create a card with handmade plaid in any fashion

 or in a pinch, use a stencil or designer paper.

I went with a handmade creation using paper strips - 

a terrific way to use up scraps!

You can watch the 60 second YouTube shorts here:

To create this card, I used scraps of cardstock

and tiny strips dies from Ellen Hudson.

I paired the plaid background with the wonderul Simon Says Stamp

and Reverse Confetti Stamptember collaboration

"Autumn Blessings"

This was a fun challenge!

A labor of love but a wonderful technique all the same :)

Thanks for stopping by!
