Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. I am really excited to share these cards with you today. Embossing on patterned paper is so much fun! These cards combine two of my favourite things: patterned paper and Memories & More cards. The large Memories & More cards measure 4 1/4″ by 6 1/4″ so they are bigger than our standard sized cards. This means you have a bigger “canvas” to show off our beautiful patterned paper!
Embossing on Patterned Paper
To keep the focus on the patterned paper and on the striking die cuts, I decided to simply emboss right on the patterned paper in white. Don’t you just love the look of this?
Here you can see my desk with some of the elements that I used to make these cards. The key is to cut the patterned paper into 3/4″ strips. I started with a 4″ by 6″ piece of patterned paper. You will end up with 8 strips but you only need 7. The big decision is whether to discard the top strip or the bottom one!
For the pink card above, I first embossed the flowers in black before cutting into strips. All of the cards had the sentiment embossed after the strips were adhered to the coordinating cardstock which measures 4 1/8″ by 6 1/8″. You could choose to emboss your sentiment first as well before cutting into strips. Take a look at my last card. You will see that there are bits of embossing in between the gaps of patterned paper. If you don’t like that look then emboss your larger sentiments before cutting your patterned paper into strips.
Seeing is believing and it is also easier than reading instructions, so feel free to take a look at my video. I would love it if you would also subscribe to my channel and leave a comment and a thumbs up!

You may not be aware that I am trying to live in two countries! Most of my time is spent with my husband in the Netherlands, but I travel back to Canada frequently to visit my mom, siblings, children and grandchildren. This craziness makes it difficult to schedule regular classes, so I rely on online sales to keep my business afloat. That means that YOUR online order would be greatly appreciated.
