A happy Tuesday to you and hope your weekend celebrations were joyful and safe.

When I first saw Stampin’ Up!’s new Holiday Catalog, the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper was the first product on my new “Wish List”.  When I get any of the new catalogs in my hands, I always browse first; then I browse with sticky notes, then with a note pad and pen. The note pad and pen phase gets serious since most of those products land on my official order list.

The Plaid Tidings DSP was penned first, then shortly in my hands. My decision was a good one! I love anything plaid and the patterned paper coordinates with so many colors that in turn, can be used to celebrate just about any occasion.

Today’s project is a simple “Thank You” in a Fall color palette featuring the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and the Ornamental Envelopes Bundle.

It’s easy to give a simple card that WOW! factor with the Envelope Dies.  Today, I used one of the dies on the envelope flap and lined just the flap with a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock to match the layers on the card.

The images on the card are from the Ornamental Envelopes stamp set and the little flowers were cropped with a matching die from the Envelopes Dies. I used one of the ovals from the Stitched Shapes dies. (page 183 in the Annual Catalog).

Below are my card layer dimensions:

  • Cut a standard A-2 card base;
  • Whisper White layer is 5 1/4″ X 4″;
  • Rich Razzleberry layer is 3 5/8″ X 4 7/8″;
  • The plaid DSP layer is 4 3/4″ X 3 1/2″

So, grab that pretty plaid paper, match your favorite card stock, stamp a sentiment, die cut an envelope flap and create something special. The only limitation is your imagination!
