Faux Tile Card

The faux tile technique was seen on a Stampin' Up website.  It's not difficult to do at all, especially if you have a Scor-Pal or a Martha Stewart scoring board.

My cards are A2 size, so I cut a piece of white cardstock to fit onto the top half of the card front.  Using my Scor-Pal, I scored lines ever 1/2 inch, both horizontally and vertically, to create the squares.

Using Chestnut Roan ink, I lightly sponged ink over the entire surface of the grid area to make the "grout" lines more visible.  Then I used Yellow Ochre, Topaz, and Bamboo Leaves inks to stamp the leaf images onto the grid.

Made a cute, fast, fall themed card!
