Last year, there was a Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Catalog called Merry Little Christmas DSP. Two of the patterns featured Buffalo Check print, one in white and black and the other in green and black! It was one of my favorite products in the catalog! So this year, when I saw the new Buffalo Check background stamp, I was super excited!
For my card today, I went with classic red and black. This combination reminds me of a super comfy flannel shirt I had in college. I LOVED it! (I wish I still had it!) I used the Buffalo Check stamp in combination with three other sets to create this card: Country Home, Many Blessings, and Star of Light. Here’s a look at all three:
Country Home Stamp Set
Many Blessings Stamp Set
Star of Light Stamp Set
All three of these sets are photopolymer sets, which allow for perfect placement every time!
To create the main image, I knew I wanted to use the bucket from Country Home, but I wanted to use a Christmas themed arrangement for the top. I found one in the Many Blessings set. I stamped both images in black ink, colored them, and trimmed both with Paper Snips and then put them together on the final card. For the can/bucket, I stamped Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. For the top arrangement, I stamped in StazOn Black and colored with Regals Stampin’ Write Markers. The colors I used were Real Red, Garden Green, Old Olive, and Crushed Curry.
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Crumb Cake card stock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Basic Black middle layer: 3-15/16 x 5-3/16 inches

Cherry Cobbler plaid strip: 2-1/8 x 5 inches
Whisper White stitched oval: 2-3/8 x 3-1/4 inches

The card was finished with a few rhinestones and a Linen Thread bow. I love the end result!
