Seaside Spray in a Checked-Gingham-Plaid Pattern

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog today.

I can’t find a definitive answer as to which word best describes the patterned background paper, so I have used all three although there may be more, but these appear to be the most popular.  I like the fresh look of the Seaside Spray in this pattern. The card base was made from Whisper White cardstock cut to 8 1/2“ x 4 1/8” and scored in half.  The Checked-Gingham-Plaid mat is from the 2019-2021 In Colour DSP and was cut to 3¾” x 5½”.  On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I randomly stamped in Versamark a leaf from the Floral Essence stamp set, covered it in Stampin’ Silver Emboss Powder, shook off the excess and heat set it.  I also heat embossed the sentiment in the same way, which was from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  I cut this out using the Stitched Shape Dies with the smallest oval, then using the next size oval, I cut a backing for it from the same DSP as mentioned.  The card was adhered together as shown.  I particularly like the way the blue and silver complement each other and will definitely use this combination again.
