Every month the blog 'Sheetload of Cards' give you a new sketch. This is the sketch for October which I combined with the Way To Use It challenge on Splitcoaststampers. This weeks challenge was to use Plaid on your card. Well everytime I think of plaid, I think of warmth and comfort....great themes for a get well card! I stamped my 'Flannel Plaid' (retired) Stampin Up! Background Stamp on Kraft cardstock using Riding Hood Red ink. I used pinking shears on the Chocolate Chip Cardstock. I did some funky sewing on the cardstock with my sewing machine. I added this new felt ribbon from Stampin Up! which is available in the new Stampin Up! Holiday Mini Catalog. If you haven't seen this ribbon before its amazing. Its made from felt and is so soft to the touch. It really reminds you of warmth and dressing warm for winter. A new must-have for winter cards. I then tied this ribbon thru a retired "Hodgepode Hardware" piece and mounted my main image from Hero Arts up on dimensionals. The circles were cut using my coluzzle.
