Pinewood Plaid Christmas

It is Make It Monday and this has to be one of my favorite simple stamping projects.  

How adorable and is this punched plaid pine tree.  The plaid tidings Designer Series Paper comes with so many different colors of plaid, but my favorite is the Crumb Cake and Pretty Peacock.  

I used the Pine Tree Punch to punch out my Pine Tree and a 21/4 and 2 1/2 inch circle punches for my stamped sentiment.  The Pinewoods Plank embossed panel layer popped up on dimensionals just adds some delicious texture to the card and the Scalloped Linen Ribbon and Iridescent Pearls add the perfect finish!

Thick Whisper White Card Base: 5 1/2 x 8/12 scored at 4 1/4
Whisper White embossed panel: 4 x 5 1/4 and scrap for punching
Pretty Peacock: 3 1/2 x 4 1/2
