Tidbit Tuesday-Faux Tile Technique

Hello Everybody!

It's the first Tuesday of the month-my Favorite Tuesday.  The Tuesday where a new challenge is posted at Technique Tuesday!

This month the technique is Faux Tiles.  The instructions are here.  Go by and see all of the beautiful creations that the DT have made!  Lots of inspiration!

Here is my card using this technique:


The Santa is from The Graphics Fairy LLC.  You can find him here (and for free!).

I printed him on white card stock and applied walnut stain Distress Ink around him after I cut him out.  I cut my tiles out in different shapes because I was trying to make sure I didn't cut his head in half.  The red is made using a border punch from Fiskars.  I used a gold pen around the edges of the card.  

I am linking this card to the following challenges:



Other Materials:
Pattern Paper: Recollections
Cardstock: brown and black (embossed with dots on Cuttlebug) and red
Gold wire ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by!  I can't wait to see what you create using the Faux Tile Technique.  Until next time my friends...Create! :)
