Tile effect card

Lining these images up was harder than I thought – even with the Stamp-a-ma-jig®. In the end I wasn’t happy with the white border on the right, so I covered it up with a tab. There are no mistakes in rubber stamping…

The card is larger than normal to accommodate the larger image. Can’t tell you the size, I’m afraid, as I forgot to measure it before it left the building. I just used an envelope from my stash.

The main images are from Stipple Celebrations, which is a Level 3 hostess set. If you want to earn a fab set like this for free, contact me today to book a workshop!
