Send happy thoughts to someone just to let them know you are thinking of them. This tiled card is fun to make whether for a special day or just any day. The simple design has added pop from the texture of the embossing folder and the multiple layers of squares which make it perfect for any thought you would like to send.
Now, cut 8 frames using two consecutive square die sizes.
Also, cut eight 2” squares to use as a backing for the frames and embossed squares.
Add rows of tape from a tape runner to the square and then add the frame over it. Make sure the tape is near the edges so the frame is secure along each edge.
Drop the embossed square in the middle of the framed piece and make sure it is secure against the tape. Doesn’t that look like a wonderful little piece of framed art?
Create a nineth square just like you did in the previous steps. This time, do not emboss the center. This will be where your sentiment is placed.
Arrange the squares on starting with the four squares that are in the upright position. Place the 4 other squares on top of the first four and then give them a little twist and fit them into place making sure that the corners that are sticking out are all facing the same direction. Adhere using the tape runner, all of the squares down securely tweaking them as needed to fit together in the center. Hint: If you place the squares on the left and right on so that the corners are touching in the center and then add the other two the same way this seems to help the card go together more easily. You may also need to do a little adjusting so the tips are not hanging over the card base.
Add the sentiment square in the center once all of the other squares are in place and then finish off the inside of the card as you would like.
The next time you have someone on your mind often send them a card. Create several and keep them on hand for any occasion. They are easy to make and great for any theme.
