The Faux Plaid Background was a technique I taught using the Big Shot and Stampin' Up!'s Stripes Textured Embossing Folder. I used Stampin' Up!'s Packed for Birthdays stamp for the focal point.
Quick and easy technique:
1. Ink Stripes embossing folder with So Saffron Ink and run through the Big Shot with Whisper White card stock. Clean folder.
2. Ink Stripes folder with Certainly Celery ink, turn the whisper white card stock you previously embossed 90 degrees and run thru the Certainly Celery inked folder.
Voila! Now you can make any color plaid paper you need to match your focal point!
