Double D - What is your Christmas Style?

Hello Dear Friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm hosting today and as you can see by my blog title ... the theme is:

What is Your Christmas Style?
Traditional?  Modern?  Elegant?  All White?  Vintage?

Here's the mood board I've created to inspire you . . . 
 I happen to be an old fuddy duddy and enjoy Traditional!
Actually, both of my sister's are more modern with white trees
that are decorated in teals & pinks ...
but I'm very happy with the Red, Green, Gold & White decorations!  LOL

Here's what I've created for my 'traditional' styled card:

Obviously the plaid portion of the mood board caught my eye
and I immediately recalled have an older Graphic45
8x8 paper pad with this plaid that I thought was so pretty!!
I've also used one of the journaling cards available within the paper pad
as the focus of my card front but added a few other goodies too.
The Santa is a 'puffy' sticker tag from my old scrapbooking stash,
the dies I've used are:
Poppystamps - Dies - Crystal Ornament Background
Poppystamps - Dies - Crystal Ornaments
 Sue Wilson Designs - Festive Collection -  Poinsettia Flourish & Corner

I have popped up my focus panel for added dimension
and added gold Stickles to the center of the ornaments.
 REMEMBER:  We have a fun prize to give away to one lucky player,
which will be chosen by

  5. Love how you combined the papers and the dies. The puffy sticker is just too cute. Great design.

  6. Fabulous card, love the plaid paper and the fun Santa! Great design!

  7. I love your traditional card and I am the same way as I prefer traditional too. Your card is so gorgeous and in my opinion you cannot go wrong with plaid. This is so festive and Santa is so cute and I love the ornaments.

  8. I love the old fashioned feel of this card. And that plaid is one of my favorites, this is simply FABULOUS!!

  9. I'm a traditional kinda gal, too, and plaid is definitely a favorite. What pretty dies you've used, and I love that Santa tag! So cute, Darlene!

  10. All of the above, Darlene. My style is where ever the card I'm creating takes me :-) I always have such a hard time answering that question. I honestly don't think I have a style. I do like the traditional and the cute - the two main reasons I love your card. The design, paper and adornments are traditional, but that Santa on the little tag is just too cute :-) Altogether, it makes it a beautiful and festive card perfect for the holidays.
    Have a wonderful evening.

  11. I think I am more traditional myself, I have been trying to break out just a little bit but can't go to any extremes. I love the plaid and the great way that you mixed together the stickers and the dies, great collage feel to it, Love it!
