Blue Plaid Cards with Tags - Set of Four

Four similar cards (one shown above and the others below) with plaid paper. The sentiment tags are tied on with ribbon.

I drew the plaid paper on white Neenah with sky blue and cobalt Copic multiliners and assorted blue and blue-green Copic markers. The base card stock layers are Papertrey Ink Hawaiian shores (medium blue-green) (above), Paper Source peacock (dark blue-green), Paper Source lake (medium blue), and Papertrey Ink enchanted evening (dark blue).

The white 1/4" satin ribbon was dyed in a small plastic bag with a few drops of Copic B01 and B41 ink. The sentiments "Love you, miss you" were computer-printed in Lucida Calligraphy font with blue-gray ink on white Neenah. I used a corner rounder punch and 1/8" hole punch to make the tags.
