Merry Monday #218, Joy

I love how the Merry Monday challenge is helping me get my Christmas cards done.  Hopefully by the time I need to send them, I'll have enough otherwise it will be crunch time. LOL

This week the inspiration was plaid.  I have to admit I am just not a plaid person. I don't like them at all, and I have no idea why.  So, I didn't buy the DSP with all the plaids, go figure.  I decided to make my own, simply ran my paper throught the big shot then put it back in facing the other direction, and didn't use the #2 tab so it wouldn't flatten the first run.  It's a little hard to see in the photo, the white is a big bright.  But it worked.  I tried using my bryer and running over each run with first Cherry Cobbler then the second run with Emerald Envy, but that turned out ugly. Yuck!   White won out.

Colors:  Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Emerald Envy.  Gold foil for the sentiment.

Your card is very pretty. Although it is very hard to see the plaid embossing, it sounds like an interesting idea to have tried.
