'Tis the season

Hello everyone,

I know the Online Card Classes Holiday Workshop 2013 is over for another year but I just had to show this card.
I loved Laura Bassen's technique so much in Day 3 of class that I just had to try my hand at another plaid card as was her example in Day 5 of His and Hers cards.
Laura showed us how to create this card using a stencil and inks.
I unfortunately did not have a diagonal strip stencil so I laid down strips of Eclipse masking paper.
I must say that it was a little tedious and probably took me about an hour or more to lay down the strips but I think the result speaks for itself.
I applied all the strips one way, added Festive Berries distress ink, pulled the strips off and then laid down the opposite diagonal strips and used Pine Needles distress ink. When all was complete I thought that maybe I should have applied the ink a little heavier but this was the effect that I achieved.
Well you can imagine that I have added a diagonal stencil to my wish list.
Anyways thanks for stopping by and hope you like my card.
