Cardmaking and Papercraft - - 6 Ways With… Pencil Erasers -

1 Cal­cu­late how many tiles you’ll need to fill your frame and cut to size. I used nine 45x60mm tiles of white card. Once cut, em­boss them us­ing a mix of pat­terns. 2 I laid out the em­bossed card, then inked them to give the ef­fect of colour com­ing from the cen­tre. The blue seeps into the neigh­bour­ing tiles, fol­lowed by red and then yel­low. Use the Cut N Dry to mix colours. 3 At­tach the em­bossed tiles in place on black card, leav­ing a bor­der around each to al­low the tiles to stand out.

4 De­cide what verse, proverb, poem or sen­ti­ment you wish to write, then die-cut the letters re­quired. I cut mine all in black, then cut some a sec­ond time in white for the letters that sit in the gaps be­tween the tiles. At­tach the black letters onto the white letters, as this will make them stand out. I like to be ran­dom with my fonts, as I re­ally love this look.
