Mosaic Tile Card

I got to help my newest downline with her first workshop and together we designed this adorable card.  We used the new Clearly for You set (#121911 W or #121976 C) from the Occasions Mini catalog.  I love that the 1 1/4" square punch fits the large background stamp.  We punched 9 squares and layered them onto daffodil delight, and whisper white.  The whisper white piece will be the card body and opens from the bottom.  The basic black piece is difficult to write on, so this way, we get the look we want, and don't need an extra piece for the inside. 

We also used the scallop punch to create a wonderful distressed flower.  Punch two scallops and distress and crumple repeatedly until the edges seperate.  Pull apart and layer with fuzzy edges facing up.  I wanted to use a Black button for the center, but since I didn't have any, I stamped the background stamp again with VersaMark, and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Unfortunately this picture did not show the wonderful shimmer.  After it had cooled, I punched it out using the 1/2" punch. I also used the Two Step Bird punch for the leaves on the card.

I just posted this to a new sketch challenge site I found out about - Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  Fingers crossed!


  1. Very cool card! Black and white are always perfect together and adding the yellow gives it a punch. Thanks for playing at Try stampin' On Tuesday!
