Inlaid Squares Background

Inlay Background

Hi All!

Today’s card is simple to do, and you can change it up very easily by using different types of background papers. I used Lawn Fawn’s Watercolor Wishes, but you could use any (small) pattern, or make something yourself!

I clear-embossed on top of the watercolor to add some texture and extra pattern. Here is a close-up:

    This is a great card, Darlene. It looks very art deco to me. As I’m having trouble finding that die locally and don’t want to spend twice the price to get it sent over from the US, I just might have to use another die of mine that should give me a similar effect. But, you’ve inspired me and awakened my creativity once again. Thanks for doing that! Hope you have a restful weekend with your family!

    I just received this die in my most recent order. Can’t wait to use it. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Cool card! I have the background stamp but am sure I have a die that will work!

    How cool, love the finished look. Those embossed circle doodles really add some texture to the card yet are subtle at the same time. Thanks Darlene I enjoyed watching you bring this together.
