Season's Greetings

Hi everyone.  A quick and easy card made today to play along with two challenges.  I'm just slipping in under the wire for JUGS #628 - Red, Black and White.
I really wanted to play along with this classic colour combination.  And to start me off is the wonderful challenge this month from Christmas Craft Creations April Challenge - Tartan / Plaid.  They are celebrating their 2nd birthday!  Congrats to the team!!

I started with some lovely buffalo plaid paper.  I added a simple white die-cut of snowy trees (AliExpress) on top and a die-cut sentiment, Season's Greetings Line Border from Lawn Fawn as the bottom.  The main panel is popped up on the card base for added dimension.

Simple but oh-so perfect for Christmas!

The plaid looks fab with the contrast of those white die cut trees Loll. :)

This works well, I like your interpretation of the colour theme. Could be a good choice for a masculine card

Love your plaid paper, color combo, die cut trees and sentiment. Your card design would be perfect if you needed multiple card designs for the holidays:-) TFS Lolly. Love and Hugs...Nancy

The white trees pop beautifully against the lovely buffalo plaid background, Loll! The black die-cut border sentiment grounds the trees nicely!
