If you are like me you have a lot of patterned paper and always searching for unique ways to use it.  I got an idea to combine it with some border dies to create a unique layer for my card.

I pulled out the True Love patterned paper and decided to use black and white for my card.  To add just a pop of color I used some Mossy Meadow for my stamped image and card base.

I love using patterned paper in card making as there are so many possibilities.  Adding a fun edge with your dies is a great way to add interest.  Check out the video for Using Patterned Paper in Card Making.  If I inspire you to be creative, share your finished project with me as I would love to see it.
