Because the Best Plaid Builder dies are card size, you can create your own custom backgrounds for just about any card you need.  Today though, we can concentrate on a quick and easy masculine style. Lots of blues and a fabulous designer series paper make this one perfect.

My color palette for my Best Year masculine plaid is Whisper White, Seaside Spray, Misty Moonlight and Night of Navy. Throwing in a mat of the In Good Taste designer series paper tied everying together.

Sentiments are no problem with the Best Year set. Those range from birthday, thank you, father’s day, Christmas and  just a little hello.  But, I knew I wanted to add a big bold sentiment on the inside. Ridiculously Awsome to the rescue.
