Slimline mosaic technique is my version of the slimline cards that are popping up everywhere.
But first, let’s get the card base sorted. Use a piece of standard size card base (A4 cut in half). Instead of scoring (folding) at 4-1/4 inch, score your card base at a little under the 3 inch mark. You will end up with a slimline card base that’s 8-1/4 x 3 inch.
Next, get some DSP (designer series paper), preferably double-sided and use a punch to punch out shapes. Alternatively, you can punch out square tiles and then stamp images on them.
Lastly, arrange your punched out shapes and glue them on your card base. Make patterns like you would when you’re tiling the wall or floor. The trick to lining them up equally is to always start at the centre. Once you’ve arranged your tiles equally, then you can start sticking them down.
Easy! Now, that didn’t take long did it? It will be fun to make matching envelopes for your cards. Since slimline cards are longer than your ordinary cards, it’s a good idea to make your own envelopes.
