Originally I thought I would use patterned paper to create my background, but the Plaid Stencil was calling my name! This is one of the most used stencils in my stash! I use it all the time! I cut a slimline panel sized 3.25" x 8.25" and positioned the Plaid Stencil over the top and blended on Kiss Me Red Hybrid Ink, shifted the stencil down, and blended the remaining portion of the slimline card. I used the Slimline Scallop Die Set to die cut a white frame for my background and used strong adhesive to adhere it to the stenciled background.
I used foam tape to add all of my Candy Cane Lane elements to the stenciled slimline background. I just love these classic Christmas colors, don't you!?
