Three out of One Background

I got my hands on Whimsy Tartan Background mainly because I wanted Christmas paper is non traditional colours like Pink or Purple. I've decided to use this minting green colour to start with.
I stamped onto the coloured card stock now the plan was to make two cards with the stamped background at the bottom.

I cut a strip of contrast colour to give a finish look between the plain and patterned and then used the bow die from the Simon says Stamp Candy Cane die. I cut it twice once trimming off the bow tails to give a more 3d look.

I used the new Simon says Stamp Marie Snowflake and the Grace one in a matching colour. I wanted to try something different for my sentiment so I used MFT Fishtail Flag die along with Simon's Inside Christmas Greetings.

Once again I had this strip leftover so I wasn't going to waste it, I decided to use smaller snowflakes this time Simon says Stamp Maryann Snowflake but the rest was all the same.

I love the colour Debby, one of my favourites, and the tartan stamp is so pretty and useful to have to make an instant background in any colour. I love the large layered snowflake with the bow on one and then the snowflake border down the front of the other, great designs. x

These are beautiful, Debby. I love the nontraditional color. The cool, wintry aqua is perfect!
