Today we are making cards using a tiles technique. This is a fun and easy card that you can do during your quiet time at home. It only requires a few things that you probably already own like a punch, stamp set and ink pads.
Think of this technique as similar to laying down tiles but instead of on the floor or walls, they are installed on your cards.
For my cards I used the following:
- Whisper White Cardstock
- 2020-2022 In Color
- Clear Block D
- Timeless Tropical stamp set
- Nature’s Beauty stamp set
- Tailored Tag Punch
When you make this card, you can use as many colours or as few as you like although some cards will require subtlety, for example sympathy cards. But try going all out with colour when making birthday, congratulations and hello cards.
Don’t worry about the images not fitting entirely on your punched-out tiles because the idea is to have just a glimpse of them to make it more interesting. Repeating the images in different angles will also add interest so experiment and have fun.
Because you will be using Whisper White as your card base, it is important to ink the borders so that you can distinctly see the shape of the tiles when you stick them down.
Here’s a video to show you the step-by-step instructions:
Order your supplies so you too can start making your cards using the Tiles Technique. It’s a lot of fun and can be completed quickly. You can also use this technique in making Christmas cards. It’s never too early to make some.
If you like, you can also copy these cards I made using the Tropical Timeless stamp set.
I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial. I’m excited to see what you’ll come up with. I’m sure they will be gorgeous.
Happy card making!
