Today we're starting a series called Creating Fun Card Designs with Designer Series Paper.

Plaid card

Doesn't that designer paper really make this card pop? And it's so simple to use because the colors are already perfect together , the pattern is already designed, and all I have to do is cut and glue!  It also makes selecting the cardstock and accessories so easy--I just use colors that are in the designer paper or that contrasts well with it. Makes card designing a snao.

I'll give you the step by step directions to create this card followed by the supply list.
