CASology #161

I've seen some mighty cute and well done plaids over at CASology this week.  The last time I tried to stamp a plaid it was a disaster so I went another way with the cue word.


Does this look like plaid?  Can you tell what I did?  Let me give you a hint.  Coverplate.  That's right.  I used the Cross Quilt coverplate by PTI and layered and offset it to create what I think looks like a unique plaid.  I had to do some cutting and finagling to get it to come out right on both sides, which made it a little narrower so I just mounted it on some Soft Stone cardstock that matches the top layer.  Kind of like a plaid quilt with a border.  The sentiment from PTI is embossed in Silver Pearl, an embossing powder I forgot I had.  To make the sentiment stand out a little more, I embossed the edges of the Aqua Mist square.  I'm going to add this to my small stash of masculine cards.
