If color matching card stock to patterned paper is daunting and prevents you from using pattern in your projects, we’ve developed the perfect solution for you. In our Resource Section, you’ll find printable color guides that list every MFT card stock color we’ve used to create the included patterns. We’ve even designed it with crop marks so you can cut it to size and insert it into the coordinating paper pack. You’ll also find all of the coordinating colors linked to each paper pack within the product listing so you can grab the card stock when you purchase your paper pack. Be sure to check out our collection of A2 envelope assortments as well to see if we have the color you need to complete your custom suite.

 

Our vast collection of patterned paper features, dots, stripes, plaids, ginghams, florals, and a multitude of custom patterns in everything from classic neutrals to bright + bold rainbows. While there are a number of occasion-specific collections, most patterned papers can be used for any number of situations.

 

There are endless ways to integrate pattern into your crafting. Here are just a few options:

 

  • Cut patterned paper to A2 size and adhere it to your card front to serve as the base of your design.
  • Die cut shapes to use as layering pieces, borders, or frames.
  • Use bold sentiment Die-namics to create standout greetings.
  • Use tone-on-tone patterns to create scenery elements — sky, trees, grass, and flower die cuts in subtle dots and stripes add unobtrusive interest.
  • Paper piece clothing for your characters. Simply stamp your image onto your chosen pattern, hand cut the portion you wish to add to your image, and adhere. To conceal the white edges of your “clothing” run a black marker around the edge before adhering.
  • Create a custom coordinating envelope for your finished card by inserting one of your patterned papers within your envelope to act as a liner.
  • Layer a sheet of translucent vellum over your patterned paper to subdue a pattern that’s too overpowering for your design.
  • Distress your paper with inking, crumpling, folding, or sanding. You can completely transform a paper by manipulating it with the tools you have on hand.
