Hey y’all! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Stephanie Vittorio here from Coffee Stamps Chaos to share a fun project using some BRAND NEW PAPERS that were recently added to the line up at Cardstock Warehouse! 

I have always loved paper crafting, card making in particular - I love the process of creating something from nothing more than Cardstock. The process of bringing projects to life, brings me immense joy and satisfaction. 

So without further delay let’s get started! 

For this project you will need the following: 

  • Cardstock Warehouse Cardstock Papers
    • Aquamarine Metallic
    • Slate Colorplan
    • Nude Sirio Color
    • Silver MirriSparkle 
  • Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive 
  • Geometric Background Die  
  • Die cutting machine 

 slate, silver mirrisparkle, nude, and aquamarine papers with background die


The first thing you will do is choose your Cardstock - I love how these colors go together to create a soft card with a small pop of dark as well as sparkle.

Create your card bases using your choice of Cardstock color - I used Slate and Nude for my bases. Cut Cardstock at 4 ¼” to create a vertical card or 5 ½” for a horizontal card - I choose my card base orientation based on the cover die I am using. In this case, I cut my Cardstock at 4 ¼” and scored at 5 ½” 

Cut leftover Cardstock into quarters - 4 ¼” x 5 ½” 


cut pieces for inlay card

Die cut each color of Cardstock using the large die. You can use this technique with any large background die. Make sure to save the negative pieces - these will be used soon.

In the end I had one of each color cut using the background die.

I put them together then turned them to see how it would look with a more dimensional background.

Before adhering them together or to the base, I chose pieces to fill in some of the spaces with various cut card stock pieces. I felt it created a more interesting piece this way. Then, I adhered the first die cut cover to my card base and filled in the spaces until I was satisfied.

Once I liked how they looked - I adhered the second die cut over the first one on each card, finishing both cards.
