Hi readers! Happy Tuesday! Ahhh I just love the way Laura Bassen rocks PLAID! What a punch of fun color to add to your holiday thank you cards! If you’re loving this color combo for plaid (like I do), just grab Hot Lips, Hot Mama, Doll Pink, Melon, Duckling, and Fog!

As always, to accompany this colorful card is a very colorful video! By colorful, I mean Laura’s silly and fun personality! Don’t forget to have a watch and enjoy!

  1. Laura makes it look easy to make a fun, fun plaid. What a great idea to have a bold and bright thank you card.

  2. Just loved watching how she made the background plaid. Love the colors she used. Have to try this. Beautiful snowflake panel. Love it.

  3. Laura you make me laugh so much. I love your videos as I have said over and over. You have mad ink blending skills, like I have never seen before. The plaid is fantastic. You are a rockstar!!!!

  4. Such a beautiful card Laura – love it! I’m wondering what factors you consider when deciding whether to mask and ink blend or use eg the jumbo stripes to stamp? Is it easier to achieve the ombre effect when ink blending? Many thanks, Cherie

  5. Absolutely gorgeous! I always enjoy Laura’s videos because she’s so down to earth and makes everything look so darn easy! This is fantastic and I think I’m gonna try it! Thanks for the inspiration, Laura! :)
