Autumn Goodness - Plaid or Plain?

The new Autumn Goodness Bundle is such a beautiful set to use for creating cards for the fall season.
I made two cards using the same stamps and dies just different backgrounds - you tell me - Do you like the Plaid or the Plain???
The plaid card uses the Plaid Tidings 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper along with Just Jade and Cinnamon Cider Card stock.
I used a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock, Pool Party and Cinnamon Cider Ink  and my Water Painters to make the background.  On another piece of Whisper White Card stock I stamped the two images with Cinnamon Cider ink and colored in my corn stalks and harvest fruits and vegetables with my Stampin' Blends.  Both images were cut with the coordinating dies and popped up with dimensionals.  The sentiment is stamped in Cinnamon Cider, cut with the Ornate Frames die and popped up as well.
Here are the supplies I used for the plaid card:

For a little more sophisticated look I used a more muted color palette.
This one uses some texture for more interest.  I used a Soft Suede cardstock base as well as a layer of Soft Suede cardstock run through the new Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder to give it just a little bit of texture.  There is a small layer of Mint Macaron, then the Very Vanilla background.  The corn stalks and harvest fruits and vegetables are stamped in Cinnamon Cider ink, then colored in soft tones with the Stampin' Blends and cut with the coordinating dies.  I popped up both images with dimensionals.
These are the supplies I used for this card:

So are you a plaid lover or do you like a more sophisticated look?
As you can tell from the name of my blog that I love plaids - so it is no wonder that one of my favorite things in this Holiday Mini Catalog is the Plaid Tidings DSP!!
It has a wide variety of plaids in it so it can be used for many different occasions.
Look for another installment of Plaid or Plain coming soon!!
