I love plaid and I just got a stamp by Concord & 9th called Sketched Stripes Background. I stamped the stripes once in each direction in Weathervane and then again in Tattered Rose DOX.
I played with various combos of ink for the sentiment and ended up with Smokey Shadow, Melon Berry and Weathervane. It gets your attention and the shading is not too in your face.
I like the shape of the Elegant Rectangle Stax dies but really had hoped that there would be less space between the dies. I guess next time I will trim down the outer layer.
At this point something was missing and I played for a long time before realizing that a simple polka dot strip would do the trick.
I think this would be great for a masculine card for any occasion. My SIL's birthday is coming up soon so I will give her a more feminine card then :-)
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card!
