I just randomly pick a stripe and start stamping leaving about the same amount of space between each stripe. Just be careful to keep your stripes parallel - I just eyeball it.
Then switch stripes and add the second color. (I suppose you wouldn't have to switch, depending on the look you are going for.)
The third color completes the bottom layer.
Then turn your paper 90 degrees and start stamping again! Here I have added all of the Berry Sorbet Stripes and the first of the Ocean Tides stripes.
After adding the Hawaiian Shores stripes, my plaid pattern is finished!
Here is the card I created with it.
I used Kraft Cardstock for the base. The distressed purple paper at the top is from BasicGrey's Kioshi 6x6 paper pad. (I LOVE this collection!!) The sentiment is from Big & Bold Wishes. I wrapped New Leaf Saddled Stitched Ribbon around the patterned paper and tied it off with Rustic Cream Button Twine and a transparent button from my Spring Mix. It was nice enough to take this picture outside today! Yeah for Spring weather!!
Thanks for stopping by; have a fabulous day!
