Textured Scale Background Love Card

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here today with a love card full of textured scale background for interest. I’ll share a fun tutorial to share on how I achieved this look.

Textured Scale Background Steps

To make your card front, cut a piece of 3.75 x 5-inch white cardstock. Add the first row of Photo Corners Polypropylene Black to the top and bottom of the card front. Continue with the Photo Corners Polypropylene Black offsetting each row. The borders at the top and bottom of the card front are about 6 rows deep to create the scale background.

Trim off the Photo Corners Polypropylene Black excess that is hanging over the card front. Now you have a stunning Textured Scale Background!

Matting the Background

First, let’s create layers for the card front. Cut a mat slightly larger than the white card front with gold cardstock.

In the center of the card front, measure between the textured scale background and cut a piece of black cardstock to fit. Next, cut a slightly smaller white cardstock piece.

Adhere the small layers (black and white pieces) together and the textured scale background to the gold mat using the E-Z Runner Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.

Add the small layered cardstock piece to the front of the card using Crafty Foam Tape Black.

The Sentiment and Embellishment

Once the puffy sticker sentiment is added to the card. Then I used Adhesive Dots Micro to add the sequins. I used black sequins and black enamel to pick up on the shine of the textured scale background created with the Photo Corners Polypropylene Black.
