Second in a series of techniques to push paper limitations
Hello friends. Thank you for joining me today. This post is also featured on the CutCardStock blog. I am an influencer for CutCardStock and have received some paper products in exchange for this post. For today's post, I will share with you using 12x12 white paper to create textured backgrounds and color with Copics. Please read along for how I assembled these two cards today.

Today, I will be using a few sheets of Bazzill white cardstock to emboss a background and to color using Copic Markers. Let’s get started.
I like using 12x12 sheets because I can get so many panels out of them to try different things. The 12x12 sheet was cut into 6 panels at 4”wide by 5.25” tall. I then ran all these panels through my Gemini Jr die cutting machine using various background embossing folders. I only used two of the embossed panels today and will save the rest for future projects.
I then cut a second 12x12 white cardstock sheet into 3 4”wide strips and stamped the main image from Hero Arts Kit-Tea stamp set. I used Copic markers to color in the image. The paper stood up well to all the blending I did with the markers. To color this cat I used: RV91, V93, W5, C7, E51, W1. The tea cup and flower: BG000, G000, Y28, E84, RV11, BV17, Y19, RV21
To assemble, I used a sheet of Bazill Arctic cardstock to make 2 top folding A2 sized cards. I attached the embossed panels using Scrapbook Adhesives dot tape runner. To one card, I added an oval I die cut out of the Bazill Arctic cardstock using the oval frame from the Hero Arts Fancy Reef frame die set. Rose gold embossing powder was added to give the edge of the oval some glam as well as die cut a sentiment from the set. To get the embossing powder to stick, I traced the edge of the oval with a VersaMarker pen and then added the embossing powder. On the other card, I cut a strip of pearlized rose gold cardstock and adhered a strip of Bazill Arctic cardstock which had a sentiment heat embossed with the same rose gold powder. To both cards I adhered the colored image using Scrapbook adhesives thin foam tape and some gems to complete the look. I hope you enjoyed these cards today and take a look at how to use your white cardstock in different ways.
