I started by making a patchwork top note die shape. I took a piece of scrap card stock slightly larger than the shape I was using and then cut a bunch of 1″x1″ pieces of Designer Series Paper and adhered them to the scratch card stock. I flipped it so the Designer Paper was facing the die and ran it through my Big Shot…but when I placed it on my card I thought it was a little too bright and busy.
So I thought I would tone it down with a piece of vellum card stock placed over it cut to the same shape. That fixed it, I got the look I wanted and it was a more muted toned down version of what I wanted. I just didn’t want it to compete to badly with the rest of the elements of the card.
