Mosaic Madness: Part 1

Last week we joined the Mosaic trend in class as we made three cards using the Mosaic line of products. They featured the Mosaic Madness stamp set, the matching Mosaic punch, and the Modern Mosaic texture folder.

This was my favorite of the three cards. I absolutely love the flower made from the punched images. Isn't it just a fun use of the set?  Here's my tip for making the flower. Start with the small flower in the middle (or a button would work too) and add three images evenly spaced around it- working from the backside. Then start a second row of petals to fill in empty space. Finally, use the placement of the leaves to 'even out' the look if you have gaps left still.

After the flower is all glued together, then scrunch up the leaves until you get the dimension you desire and mount it to the card with a pop dot (aka dimensional, but pop dot is so much more fun to say :) ).

My final tip for this card is just to notice that I didn't emboss the entire white layer, but instead left a small strip sticking outside of the folder. This left room for the stamped 'ribbon' and the sentiment. Perfect!

Flutterby again soon to see the other two class cards :)

Pin It!
