Silver Grooves Hologram Cardstock

Hello paper lovers. We are back this week with another Thank You card featuring our Hologram cardstock. The cardstock we are showcasing today is called Silver Grooves. This Hologram cardstock has a brushed metal look that in the right light can reflect subtle rainbow colors. This cardstock has a grooved texture on the surface. Each little groove in the paper reflects light adding more visual texture. About this card: We’ve die cut the word THANKS from the Silver Grooves cardstock and layered it onto Color Plan Ink cardstock. It creates an interesting multi-dimensional look and makes a great focal point for our card. Our Hologram papers are available in these user friendly options: 6×6 assortment pad • 12 sheets: 2 sheets each of 6 designs (Rainbow, Double Pillars, Cracked, Silver Grooves, Color Motion Confetti, and Lava).

12×12 packs • 2 Sheets per pack Rainbow • 12″ X 12″ Double Pillars • 12″ X 12″ Cracked • 12″ X 12″ Silver Grooves • 12″ X 12″ Color Motion Confetti • 12″ X 12″ Lava • 12″ X 12″

Cracked Hologram Cardstock – Monogram Art

How can we describe the Cracked Hologram cardstock? The cracked multi-faceted design takes the light and fractures it, spreading out and reflecting the colors like a broken mirror. I imagine it feels like being inside a cracked disco ball.

To showcase we created a Monogram N using the Cracked Hologram paper. It has a galvanized metal look to it. This paper scores, folds and cuts easily. It was easy to score and fold this paper to wrap around a large chipboard letter. It was simple to adhere to the chipboard N with standard glue. The folds are crisp and clean leaving the appearance that this N was punched from a sheet of metal.

Like all of our Hologram papers the appearance of the colors are changed by how much light is reflected and where the direction of the light comes from.

Our Hologram papers are available in these user friendly options: 6×6 assortment pad • 12 sheets: 2 sheets each of 6 designs (Rainbow, Double Pillars, Cracked, Silver Grooves, Color Motion Confetti, and Lava).

Rainbow • 12″ X 12″ – 2 Sheets per pack Double Pillars • 12″ X 12″ – 2 Sheets per pack Cracked • 12″ X 12″ – 2 Sheets per pack (shown above) Silver Grooves • 12″ X 12″ – 2 Sheets per pack Color Motion Confetti • 12″ X 12″ – 2 Sheets per pack Lava • 12″ X 12″ – 2 Sheets per pack

Snow SPARKLES!

Snow is falling all around … is it snowing where you live? ETC Papers is based in Las Vegas and we don’t usually get much snow, if any. However many of us work remotely and sure are getting dumped on. Freshly falling snow means snow days, slippers and craft time. Yay!

Inspired by snow, we’ve made a couple of winter cards we hope you’ll enjoy! We love the look of sparkly snow and tried to mimic that look on these cards using our White Glitter non-shed cardstock.

Add a little glitter to your next craft project. You’ll love the look. Even better, you’ll love that it’s mess free!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from all of us at ETC Papers.

Tag those gifts – Make them sparkle

A personalized and custom tag can really push your gift giving to the next level. You don’t need much to make that gift packaging special. Here are two tag ideas that we hope inspire you to dress up those holiday packages.

These ‘FOR YOU’ tags features our Green Glitter non-shed card stock. We used a leaf die to create holly leaves and then added a few red embellishments to create the berries.

These ‘Tree SPARKLE’ tags features our Green Glitter non-shed card stock and our Emerald Glitter non-shed card stock. These two shades of green add variety to the repeating trees. We used a small tree die to cut the tree shape and then added silver rhinestone stars to the top of each tree.

Happy gift giving!
