A Tail of Two Plaids

Hello friends.  I actually have 2 cards to share with you today because I can't decide which one I like better!  They're both basically the same, but made with different color plaids, so I'll let you decide!  Take a look:





Both plaids are from PTI's Holiday Plaids, the mouse is from MFT Harvest Mouse, the jingle bell die cut is from Lil Inker Designs, and the sentiment is from PTI's Season's Greetings.  I used a Soft Sky card base on the first card, and colored the mouse with my Copics and the background with Tumbled Glass distress ink and a blending tool.  I liked the way it turned out, but......   So next I started with a kraft card base, gave the mouse a tan sweater and paper pieced his vest to match the plaid on the side.  I used a gold bell this time and embossed in gold the same sentiment as the first card.  After I finished the 2nd one, I couldn't decide which one I liked best, so just decided to post them both.  You can let me know which one you like better!  :0)

The challenge at Merry Monday this week is to use plaid on your card, and you can see all kinds of beautiful cards and play along right HERE. 


I'm also entering these cards over at the HLS January Christmas Challenge where the challenge is "Jingle".  You can check it out and play right HERE.


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment...I love it when you do!!  :0)

  3. They're both adorable Marcia! I love the little plaid vest you gave the second mouse. Too cute!! How clever of you to give the mouse a little bell to carry as well. What a great way to stretch your stamps.

  9. Both cards are so adorable! This mouse set is one of my very favorites. The first design is so bright and festive but I think I would pick the second plaid pattern. especially fun with the little mouse wearing a plaid vest!
