Tiling on Father’s Day.

Here’s a card for you just in time for Father’s Day.  It uses the technique I call “tiling”.  Here are the directions.

Get a card base (thick white used here)(5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″).

Cut wood texture mat at 5 1/4″ x 4″.

Cut old olive strips at 5 1/4″ x 1/4″ and 4″ x 1/4″.

Take the punch from the darling punch box and punch out three “squares” from very vanilla cardstock.

Now place end to end and stamp. (Rooted in Nature used here)


Stamp the leaves with Old Olive ink.

Also stamp the greeting (Itty Bitty Greeting used) with Early Espresso ink.

Use snail to glue mat and strips.  Use dimensionals to pop up the tiles.

Here’s the completed card.

Tiled stamping.

This is probably the only time you will hear me say this.  Punch first and then stamp.  Yes, punch first.  Then lay your punches end to end and stamp as if it was one piece.  This will create a tiled look.


Stay tuned on Thursday to see the finished card.

Happy Crafting!
