A Plaid by any other name is NOT just a plaid

I've been on a roll lately with our plaid stamps so why change now! This week I decided to use my open plaid and add one of our card edger plus's.

Here's a picture of the 3 stamps I used.

To start my card I stamped my plaid stamp (at the bottom of my card) upsidedown with the largest opening towards the center of my card. After re-inking I turned my stamp right side up and stamped it again, about 3/8" above my first stamping.

Next I filled the 3 larger opening using the flower side of my card edger plus and black pigment ink

Then I stamped the top and bottom edge as well. After embossing with clear powder I colored all the flowers using pink and purple bic markers.

The rest was simple, after turning my stripes vertical I mounted it on a purple card. My center image was stamped using turquoise ink and dry brushed with the same ink around the edges. After cutting the back layer for it I wrapped it with 1/8" lavender ribbon before attaching the sentiment.

By the time I got to the inside I was in a mood to get a little funky, so I cut a bright pink piece of cardstock (angled at the bottom) and stamped both my sentiment and flower using versamark ink and embossed themusing white embossing powder.

Thanks for spending part of your Saturday with DRS!!
