Beau Chateau Faux Tile Horiztonal Center Step Card

Whew! That's a mouthful of a title! This is my favorite card that I made for my Faux Tile Workshop Wow display board at the Louisville Regional Seminar. I used the Elements of Style stamp set and the coordinating Beau Chateau DSP.

The flowers in the corners of the center piece are images cut out from the DSP. The bird was stamped and cut out. I added 2-Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter to all of the images to make it sparkle a little.

I love these Horizontal Center Step Cards. I can't stop making them! Click here for a detailed tutorial with measurements and a template to learn how to make your own.

This is one of my Faux Tile samples that uses a diagonal tile design. To help keep my cardstock straight on the Simply Scored Tool, I cut a 4" x 4" square from a piece of chipboard. (I used the piece that came with one of the Simply Sent Card Kits.) I cut the square in half diagonally and then used it up in the left corner of the scoring tool and held the cardstock against it. Since it's hard to use the ruler at the top with the chipboard in the way, I counted the grooves and scored every 4 grooves, which is equivalent to 1/2". Then just turn the paper and scored the other direction to create a grid.
