Stampin’ Up! Sketched Plaid


  • Basic White: 4” x 5 ¼”, 2 ½” x 3 ½”, scrap
  • Balmy Blue: 5 ½” x 8 ½”,
                        4 ¾” x 3 1/2″
  • White Baker’s Twine:   16”
  • Blueberry Bushel: 5” x 3 ¾”, scrap


  1. Fold Balmy Blue card base in half.  Use bone folder to flatten card base. Adhere
    4”x 5 ¼” piece of Basic White to inside of card.
  2. To create plaid background, use grid paper to assist.  Ink up the Sketched Plaid stamp with Blueberry Bushel ink and stamp image on grid paper, lining up the image with grid lines.  Place smaller piece of Balmy Blue on the grid paper stamped image (close to the upper left). Use a pencil to note the placement of the 4 edges on the grid paper.  Reink the Sketched Plaid stamp with Blueberry Bushel using the image on the grid paper as a guide and stamp plaid image on the Balmy Blue piece.  Move the Balmy Blue piece to the right 5/8” and down 5/8” (line up plaid lines as desired).  Clean ink from stamp and reink with White craft ink. Stamp the inked image over the original image on the grid paper. Slight variation will not detract from the overall artwork.
  3. Die cut “Happy Birthday” from a scrap of Basic White card stock and the backing shape from Blueberry Bushel using the dies from the Wanted to Say die set.  Adhere the words to the Blueberry Bushel layer.  Die cut a stitched rectangle from the remaining Basic White card stock and adhere to the center of the plaid rectangle.  Adhere this piece to the Blueberry Bushel rectangle and then adhere this piece to the Balmy Blue card front.
  4. Adhere the Happy Birthday piece to the stitched rectangle with dimensionals.  Add 3 Blueberry Bushel gems to the card front.
  5. Fold bakers twine in half and create a double bow.  Adhere to the card front with a small dot of liquid glue.
