Christmas Plaid

Hello and welcome back!  LeeAnn here to provide a fun spin on the use of the Plaid Coverplate Dies!  I absolutely LOVE the soft look of this card in non-traditional colors!
I started with 3 A2 sized pieces of heavy vellum.  I blended two of the pieces with LDRS Hybrid Ink with a blending brush.  I blended one piece with Alloy Hybrid Ink and the other with Pistachios-A-Plenty hybrid ink, while leaving the 3rd piece plain.  The color is very subtle as you can see from the picture of the Alloy piece above.  Next, I die cut each piece using a different Plaid Cover Die.  I used Plaid Coverplate Die III on the plain white piece of vellum.  I then used Plaid Coverplate Die II and Die I on the two color blended pieces of vellum.
Next, I used all three tree dies from the Holiday Floral Coordinating Dies and cut the largest tree from silver foil cardstock.  The middle tree was cut from Navy cardstock and the smallest from a light gray cardstock.  I layered these with foam squares for a little dimension.
The sentiment is cut from a minty green cardstock using the Tis The Season die from the Large Word Christmas Die collection.  I cut the sentiment twice to stack for dimension then spritzed with some sparkle spray for a little subtle shine.
Time to assemble!!  I layered the plaid vellum on a white A2 card base and adhered using liquid glue.  I didn't have any issues with the glue showing through once dry.  You can layer these plaid layers in any order you like depending on the look you're trying to achieve.  
I added the layered tree to the center of the card and adhered the sentiment on top with liquid glue.  Lastly, I added the embellishments!  I just LOVE the softness of the vellum and the subtle color variation.  
Please let me know what you think of the final card!  I love to hear your feedback!
Crafty Hugs, LeeAnn
