Faux Tile With Summer Silhouettes

January 6th, 2014 , 2 Comments »



Hello Folks. . .  Happy day to ya.  Today I have a wonderful technique to share with you.  I fell in love when I first came across it.  It's called a faux tile technique and is easy to do.  This is a standard A2 card in Coastal Cabana (one of our new In Colors this year).  I've got some pictures to show you just how easy this is.  Here we go!!


Cut your Whisper White layer at 4 x 5 1/4.  You will need your SimpleyScored Scoring Tool #122334
and the coordinating 
Simply Scored Diagonal Plate #125586
Place your paper in the corner with the 4" on top, score down the middle
from corner to corner,  score on each side of your middle line at 2 and 4

.  102_2766

Turn your paper with the 5 1/4" side at the top and score
down the middle and on each side at 2 and 4"


Now to make your template do the same thing again and
cut out a "V" on your scored lines


Place your template on each spare and sponge with Coastal Cabana


This is what you will end up with.  So so pretty, don't you think.

I used two stamps sets.  My leaves and flowers are from Summer Silhouetts #132082/126447 and my sentiment is from a retired set.  I needed something that would fit in my tag.  The tag is cut with one of our Apothecary Accents Framelites #127003.  It is nested on a piece of Coastal Cabana cut again with the Apothecary framelit.  I cut the circle off and then cut it down the middle, adhered the top and bottom.  I cut a 3/4" circle with our circle punch and placed it behind the tab.  I thought it needed a little something else so I stamped a butterfly from Papilion Potpourri#132058/123759 and punched with our coordinating punches.  Viola' you have a stunning card.   

I hope I didn't confuse you and you're able to make your card with ease.  If you have any questions, please email me.  If you need product please shop in my OnLine Store 24/7 at the link below.
