Can you tell I have been having fun with the Faux Tile technique? Here is another card I made using the tile technique. This one is more masculine - I used the stamp set Open Sea , which isn't in the catalog. This set was in the summer mini book but has been continued on and you can still order it! It makes great guy cards!
I stamped the images with soft suede and pool party ink and coordinated the paper to match. Then added some bakers twine in early espresso and textured the paper with the square lattice embossing folder. The Sentiment Happy Birthday is from the set teeny tiny wishes.
