Faux Tiling

Today, I would like to show you another fun card we did at the Australia's Biggest Afternoon Tea using the Simply Scored tool.

I am enjoying using this fun tool and it is so easy to create unique effects on your cards.

The card below uses the faux tiling technique.  The square of Whisper White is scored with lines 1.5 cm apart, then turned 90 degrees and scored again to create a grid pattern.  With the indented side facing up, the card is then stamped on.  The ink will 'miss' the indented lines, creating a tiled effect.

Not bad huh?  Although we did not do an 'inside' for this card at the make and take, I sponged and stamped a square to go inside when I assembled the leftovers.

Stamps:  Elements of Style, Apothecary Art
Card:  Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze
Tools:  Big Shot, Labels Collection Framelits die, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, 1" Circle Punch, Scallop Square Bigz die

If you would like a demonstration of the Simply Scored tool, why not come to one of my classes, or book a class or a party in your own home.
