The inspiration for today’s mosaic card was this rug on the Home Decorator’s website. How did I do?
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- The Stampin’ Up! Striped Scallop Thinlits Die became the frame for holding the mosaic pattern. I used Very Vanilla card stock for the die cut as well as the A2 card base.
- Stampin’ Up! Adhesive Sheets, Liquid Multipurpose Glue with a Paper-Piercing Tool (my choice) or a Sakura Glue Pen are all excellent ways to adhere the die cut to the card base. I just dot the edges with glue and random spots in between.
- Scraps of card stock in Brushed Gold, Lost Lagoon and Basic Gray were cropped with the Striped Scallop Thinlits Die to get the “mosaic” bits. They are easy peezy to layer into the framework with a touch of Snail Adhesive.
- An Antique Brad makes a bold statement on the Brushed Gold Butterfly (Elegant Butterfly Punch).
- For best results, add a piece of waxed paper between the die and the card stock when cutting with the Big Shot. This makes it much easier to remove the die cut and pieces.
