On Trend Plaids in Nutcracker Christmas Card

Love the plaid in this Nutcracker Christmas Card by Lynda Falconer, Stampin' Up Demonstrator at using Around the World Designer Paper and Stitched Shape Framelits

An on trend plaid table runner sets off this holiday table.

I’m MAD about the plaid in this nutcracker Christmas card!  I’m so excited to see Closeup of Nutcracker Christmas Card embellishment by Lynda Falconer at that plaids are on trend for the holidays!  So I was not surprised to see the gorgeous plaid papers in Stampin’ Up’s Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper.  It was the perfect choice for this Nutcracker Christmas Card made with the green plaid and fussy cut nutcracker from this darling paper pack.  This easy card goes together in a flash with minimum supplies – the perfect project for ANY stamper.
