# Card Challenge Blogs # Technique Twist

The Technique Twist- Faux Tiling #13

There are two great tutorials for Faux tiling which can be found here:


The Write Stuff

Both are great resources in creating Faux tile and I have made plenty of cards using these techniques. On Technique Twist, the catch is to try something different and have a twist on it. So I thought that the Stampin Up Honeycomb Textured Embossing folder  actually seemed like tile and the more I thought about it as like a version of fun subway tile.

So I embossed some Very Vanilla paper and wrapped the card with some linen ribbon. I than stamped on the Little Sailboats from Greetings From Set from SU! in Midnight Muse. I than took the Sending Love stamp from the same set and stamped that in Real Red and punched it out using the 7/8 scallop punch.

So my twist on it is using the embossing folder as tiles. I felt the honeycomb lent it self well to the idea of tile. To be honest though not sure if I love the card but love the idea of it.

Supplies used (all Stampin Up!):

Honeycomb Embossing Folder
Very Vanilla Card Stock
Pool Party Card Stock
Linen Ribbon
Greetings From Set
Real Red and Midnight Muse Ink
