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.
