How to do Paper Mosaic Card

Paper Mosaic

by Libby Hickson

Create a mosaic look by adhering tiny paper pieces to your paper.


  • Cardstock (Hero Arts Layering Paper in Pine, Grass & Celadon used here)
  • Mod Podge, or other liquid adhesive
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Outline Stamp Image (Hero Arts K5628 Circle Ornament Tree used here)
  • Permanent Ink (Ranger Archival Ink used here)


  1. Step 1

    Create paper mosaic "tiles" by trimming paper into small squares of various sizes.
  2. Step 2

    Mark an outline on base paper of the general area to cover with mosaic.
  3. Step 3

    Begin the mosaic by using a paintbrush to apply a small amount of Mod Podge to the cardstock and lining up the paper squares.

    Work in a small area at a time as the thin coat of Mod Podge can dry rather quickly.
  4. Step 4

    Continue to add paper tiles until mosaic is complete. Cover with a top coat of Mod Podge. Allow to dry thoroughly.
  5. Step 5

    Stamp image with permanent ink, being careful not to smear the image on the glossy surface.
  6. Step 6

    Trim image and complete the card.
  7. Optional:
    Instead of stamping, die-cut shapes from the mosaic.

Suspension Card and how to make it

Suspension Card

by Beate Johns

Use simple supplies to create a fun, interactive element for your cards.


  • Dental floss
  • 1 1/4" circle punch
  • 1 3/8" circle punch
  • Cardstock for card base
  • Cardstock for layer that your suspended image will be nestled in
  • Ink
  • Stamps
  • Sticky Strip™


  1. Step 1

    Use a 1 3/8" circle punch (or other large shape) to make a window in the cardstock layer.
  2. Step 2

    Position the cardstock layer on the card base and mark where the punched window is.
  3. Step 3

    Punch out a circle on your card base with the same circle punch.
  4. Step 4

    Stamp two images and punch them out with the 1 1/4" circle punch (or other smaller punch).
  5. Step 5

    Apply Sticky Strip™ to the back of both punched images.
  6. Step 6

    Apply Sticky Strip™ over and under the punched window on the cardstock layer.
  7. Step 7

    Tape a piece of dental floss on the backside of your cardstock layer, centering it in the punched opening.
  8. Step 8

    Take one of the 1 1/4" circle images, center it in the 1 3/8" window and tape it to the dental floss.

    Add an extra layer of Sticky Strip™ over the tape holding the floss down. Don't remove the red plastic liner from the adhesive yet.
  9. Step 9

    Flip cardstock layer around. Add second 1 1/4" circle image, line it up with the back of the first image and tape it down.
  10. Step 10

    Apply more adhesive, and adhere cardstock layer to the card base. Make sure the 1 3/8" windows line up.
  11. Step 11

    Finish decorating the card.



    Shape It Up
    Try out different shaped/size punches. Just make sure you have two that are the same shape, just one size different.

    Combine It
    Try using this suspension on the inside of a tunnel card.
