Welcome to Day 9 of the 25 days of Christmas Inspiration series.

Today starts a new challenge at Addicted to CAS and our sponsor is Happy Little Stampers with a $15 gift certificate. Our Code word is

I am sure you can find lots of reasons to use sparkle with Christmas upon us.
To make my card I started with a top folding Crumb Cake base and yep you guessed it, that Plaid Background stamp by Concord & 9th. I am loving that stamp as you can tell. I stamped it o Real Red cardstock with Black ink. To cut the ornament I used the Ornamental dies also by Concord & 9th. I used a pine bough by Stampin up for the pine needles.
 The background was made using the Barnwood Background stamp, another one of my favorites by Concord & 9th. To finish the card I used the Merry die cut alsoby Concord & 9th out of gold glimmer paper and embossed the word Christmas (from a Neat & Tangled set) in white embossing powder to contrast. 


  1. Plaid is the 'in' thing for Christmas this year, Ceal, and it looks terrific as a big ornament. I'd love a real one like this.

  2. Love your card...that plaid stamp is going on my wish list for sure!
