Inlaid patterned paper for die cuts

Cathy ZielskeCards10 Comments

Today I’ve got a few card projects where patterned paper or other cardstock fills in the open space of the die for a fun pop of color and contrast.

I combined a bold patterned paper with a simple Sunflower Frame Die cut and just a touch of ink blending to create this card.

Here is a video showing you how I made the card:

Here are the other cards from the video:

This is a fun way to use up scraps of paper you may have in your stash, especially in small sizes, to create a fun background for any die cut.

On the card above, I went in a more monochromatic direction, but added a little interest by clear embossing an image on the mat behind the die cut.

Thanks so much for stopping by! All supplies are linked below.

    Love the colors on your cards. They bring a smile to your face. Don’t you love the new SSS flower dies? They’re so pretty and have several on my “wish list”.

    Such a great idea. I don’t have that die yet, but I do have a couple recent SSS flower dies I can do that with. Thanks for the inspiration! Always love your designs.

    I’m a pastels girl. I love the innocent pink card with the floral paper background in particular but they are all “Cathy clean and simple”! Thanks for the card demo. 🙂
