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

We are super excited to share another product collaboration with our friends at Ranger Ink. Ranger Ink is known for their innovative product offerings of ink, tools and craft products. Click here to see the cool stuff they created on their blog with our Real Wood Paper.

We paired our Real Cherry and Birch Wood paper with their amazing embossing powders and embossing inks to create this perpetual December calendar. We love how rich the metallic embossing powders appear on the Cherry Wood paper. The rich warm tones of the embossing fits perfectly with the rich warm tones of the Cherry Wood paper.

We randomly lined the edge of the Cherry Wood paper with Ranger Emboss IT ink and pens. We used the clear Emboss IT pen to add a little spot detailing. Wanting even more texture, we added a few pearly accents with random dots of Liquid Pearls.
