Don’t you just love the look of inlay wood? These 3.5″ x 5″ note cards are going for that inlay look with a little bit of a graphic approach. We used the Perfect Paper Crafting’s paper cutting mat to achieve these perfectly cut angles! This tool made it super quick and easy to achieve such a detailed look with our Wood paper.

Tip: On the card above we used the Perfect Layers 1/16″ spacing mark to align each cut piece of Cherry wood for exact spacing before adhering. So easy. We love the look of the herringbone inlay wood!!!

Each stripe of Wood paper on this alternating Birch and Cherry Wood diagonal card was cut using the 5/8″ mark on the Perfect Layers tool. No measuring needed, just line up and cut with a hobby blade.

Cutting angles can be tricky. The Perfect Paper Crafting’s paper cutting mat has easy printed guides for cutting angles. So smart. Cut away and create an angled masterpiece.

We had a blast playing with the Perfect Paper Crafting products that we just couldn’t stop layering! We decided to play off of the layering theme a little bit more and created a layered Cherry WoodFlower embellishment using this cut file from Silhouette. This flower took a super long time to assemble but the end result is pretty cool. It’s a good thing using the Perfect Layers Mini tool saved us time on the card base!

The Perfect Layers tools helped us achieve straight cut lines and absolutely perfectly spaced layers on our projects. It was so easy and took the measuring and thinking out of the mix. Perfect Paper Crafting’s paper cutting mat is the perfect size for small jobs. We found it an excellent size for card making. We used both of these products to create our HELLO card. It’s also extra cool that these products are small making them great choices for crafting on the go.
