Stitching Panel Card Bases

Hi, crafty friends. I wanted to do something a bit different for today’s project so I created card bases from THIS stitching panel die…

I die-cut it from three colors of card stock and folded it in half to create a smaller card base. They measure 3.5 x 5 in size and still fit nicely inside a regular A2 envelope. For the pink card, I pushed out all of the circles in the holes for a clean look…

For the remaining two cards, I left some of the circles in for a completely different look…

For the center piece, I used a few Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and colored the rainbow from THIS stamp set directly on the stamp. I stamped each layer of the rainbow a few times for a bold look. I did the same thing with the cloud but cut it out afterwards and adhered it with THIS for some dimension. I finished it off with an enamel heart and adhered them to a white stitched panel cut with THIS die.

I cut a total of four white square panels for each card. One for the front, two for the inside….

and one for the back…

This gives you a place to write your message on the inside and put your handmade by stamp on the back. It covers up all the adhesive and gives the card extra stability.

I hope this inspires you to create card bases from large die background panels. It’s a great way to stretch your supplies.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Happy crafting!
