perfectly plaid quick christmas card

Happy Monday!  This week we are going to be flipping around between Christmas, Halloween and Thank Yous.  I love making cards for all these occasions – what about you?  Today’s card is a super cute Christmas card using the new Perfectly Plaid stamp set along with some other goodies.

Did you know we are in the throws of the Twelve Weeks of Christmas emails?  If you’re not on the list – be sure to use this link to get there.  You’ll know you’re “on the list” because you received three new tutorials on Friday!  We are just nine short weeks away from Christmas, but if you get all these emails you’ll have loads of ideas to use this year and beyond.

I am having a blast playing with this stamp set.  It comes in a bundle too with a cute tree punch.  You’ll see a sample using that later this week.  I also can’t get enough of the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper that coordinates with this set.  Here’s what that looks like:
