Today, I’ve got a card showing you a fun way to create a background with the Best Plaid Builder Dies. You know how they say crafters don’t throw anything away? This card came as a result of a ‘oh, I just can’t bear to throw that away’ moment. I created a card last week using the Best Plaid Builder dies. You can see the original card here.

I used Shimmery White cardstock to create a watercoloured background. Once I cut the plaid piece, I had all these cute little squares laying around. They were too good to throw away so I used it to create this checkered look. Add the leaf from the Forever Gold Lasercut paper and I had a very simple, yet striking card. 

Then, I added a tiny bow and it sat for a few more days on my desk. The creative process takes time! Finally, a simple sentiment embossed in gold from the Best Year stamp set layered on Sahara Sand cardstock was the finishing touch for this card. You can purchase the Stampin Up! Best Year stamp set and the Best Plaid Dies as a bundle which will save you 10% off the total cost. Click on any of the product images below to be taken to my Online Store.
