Tips and Tricks: Plaid Patterns

December 4, 2013

Plaid Patterns

Plaid can make a very interesting background on a card (see some examples on Pinterest). A plaid pattern using soft blues, for example, would do wonderfully for a baby announcement. Or a rugged red plaid for the holidays, a yellow plaid for a sunny birthday greeting—you get the picture.

To help you create your own plaid patterns in your own colors and styles, here are some tutorials. Have fun!
