Green Plaid with Lucky Horseshoe

I created this plaid over at Tartan Maker and used Silhouette to make two sizes then printed on Text Vellum. Cut my step card with layering weight white cs then attached plaid strips cut from the printed plaids. Stamped leaf image on side panels in black ink then used green marker to color leaves. Added green pearls on bottom strip, added printed image (Graphic Fairy) and attached Silhouette cut horseshoe laurel.

This is the wreath I created with stamps. It is offered here for you to use.

I made the laurel by stamping some greenery stamps in a wreath pattern with black ink on white copy paper. Scanned that image to my Silhouette then created outline of that image. Now I have a wreath that I can resize and cut out. The one used here was not a good cut all the way around and some of the wreath was lost. That is where I got the idea to use it in its off shape but call it a horseshoe.

  1. Bonnie, you are amazing! I love your plaid and that you created your own wreath. Even better, when it didn’t cut right, you found the perfect way to use it anyway. Genius!
