FAUX TILE CARD
Janene made this elegant tiled card at one of Regal's demos last year. She used a large patterned stamp (unfortunately I don't know the maker) to print on a piece of smooth white card of the same size, which had been scored into thirds using a scoring board and tool. The ink doesn't go into the lines as long as the stamp is not applied with too much pressure. The end result is a very convincing tiled effect.
Janene has stamped a greeting on a diecut white circle backed onto a scallop of dark blue (adding a ribbon bow for decoration), and then the whole panel has been mounted onto a smooth white singlefold card from Regal.
