I chose to work with my PTI Harlequin cover plate. Before cutting out the die, I took a piece of Kraft cardstock and stamped it with my PTI Herringbone background stamp and then embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder (distressed stripes). Since I don't have any Press 'N Seal, I just temporarily adhered the cover plate on my card front and used it as a guide to stick the negative pieces back in. I used both the stamped and unstamped sides of those leftover pieces, for some added interest.
I wish that I had just made this card with my usual white cardstock. Just not feeling this one at all.
