Love of Leaves Plaid Recessed Window Cards
The Plaid Tidings 6×6" Designer Series Paper Pack is a unique collection of papers that has colorful plaid patterns for all of our upcoming occasions. There are rich fall colors, Halloween combos, traditional red & green for Christmas, and pretty pinks for Valentine's Day. It's a fabulous pack for mixing & matching—lots of possibilities!

Background Basics—The background begins with a 5" x 3-3/4" piece of Pretty Peacock, mounted onto a Thick Whisper White card base for sturdiness. I embossed a 5-1/2" x 2" piece of Cajun Craze with one of the two Wrapped In Texture Mini Embossing Folders and added that to the card front.

Recessed Leaves—I used the Stitched Leaves dies to cut out a window from a 3" x 3" piece of Plaid Tidings DSP. Check out the pretty faux stitching around the edge of the window…I love it!  Be sure to hold onto the Plaid Tidings piece that created the window! I'll have ideas for utilizing those on tomorrow's blog post!
To achieve the vein stitching, I positioned the DSP onto a 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" piece of Bumblebee cardstock, added the coordinating vein embossing die in the center, then remove the DSP immediately before running it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine. The Plaid Tidings layer is popped up with Dimensionals and the layers are adhered to the card front with SEAL adhesive.

Sweet Sentiment—I finished by stamping a Love of Leaves greeting in Pretty Peacock onto a Whisper White Hippo & Friends die-cut. It's popped up, too. Lastly, I added a Mango Melody iridescent Artistry Blooms Sequins for a little sparkle. 
Speaking of Artistry Blooms Sequins…they match perfectly with the Plaid Tidings DSP! The 4 colors in the package are Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, Coastal Cabana and Rich Razzleberry. The iridescent nature of the sequins allows them to match many other colors that are similar to those, too! They are currently my favorite embellishment!

Two Cool—I couldn't resist trying out another recessed window using another leaf from the Stitched Leaves dies. 
Background Basics—This time I covered the card front with a 3-3/4" x 5" Seaside Spray backdrop with a Misty Moonlight 2" strip embossed with the other Wrapped In Texture Mini Embossing Folder.

Lovely Leaf—I selected another Plaid Tidings pattern with a completely different color combo for this larger leaf. It's layered on a Melon Mambo square, popped up with lots of Dimensionals.

Finishing Touches—I stamped the sentiment in Melon Mambo onto a Whisper White Ornate Frames die-cut, then added a Rich Razzleberry Artistry Blooms Sequin to the square. 
Be sure to stop back tomorrow, when I'll share the cards I created with the window cut-outs from these cards!
