Pretty Plaid (Using Copics)

09/27/2017 Update: Winner of the Color Dare Sapphire Award in Challenge #260.
My card was inspired by a Design Team member's card that can be found HERE. I CASE'd the card but things changed as I moved along. In the end, in spite of the differences, I like my card and believe the recipient will enjoy receiving it.
The front of the card base was dry embossed. The plaid was made with Copic markers on a panel of white cardstock. The plaid panel was adhered to a panel of charcoal cardstock. The punched flowers were adhered and Nuvo drops were added to the centers. The sentiment was adhered to a strip of vellum and adhered to the plaid panel. This was adhered to the card base. The inside was decorated with coordinating cardstock and punched flowers.

  1. I really like your plaid background. Really pretty card. Thanks for playing along with the Color My Heart Color Dare.

  2. What a cute card! Your plaid background is perfect and your sentiment die cut is so pretty! :)

  3. Love the colors you've used on this card! Great take on the sketch! Thanks for joining us at HLS Anything Goes with Dies!

  4. Love that soft plaid and that you used vellum for your sentiment so as not to cover your pretty plaid, and the dainty flowers bringing in the two pinks. Pretty and fun card inside and out. Thanks again for sharing with us at Color Dare this week.

  5. I love your marker made plaid pattern! I'm so glad you found a way to participate in the Color Dare challenge by substituting Copic markers that are very close to the challenge colors. The vellum layer adds a nice touch too. Thanks for playing along with us again at the Color Dare. We love to see your creativity! :) Marie

  6. So pretty in plaid! How creative to make your own plaid pattern with markers! I love the whimsical font and your 3D blossoms too. Really beautiful!
