When I saw all of that open space, I looked at my embossing folders and/or dies that created entire scenes for the background. Since I was making this card on Saturday which was still Christmas in July(!), I ended up with this snowy forest background.
I had stamped and cut the sentiment for an earlier card but I ended up not using it. Happily, it fit so nicely in the center of the scene on this card. Then I just added some classic plaid, a little sparkle and a little twine bow!
