I cut 1 " squares with my paper trimmer. I run the folded card thru a Xyron 510 to make the card front sticky. Then I "lay the tiles" . This particlar card is 4 x 6 ish so it takes 24 "tiles". The pattern requires 6 light tiles, 12 medium tiles, and 6 dark tiles. I used a Bazzill Trio pack because the colors were already chosen for me.
The Giraffe and Baby: is a Eureka Stamp. I colored them with Prismacolor pencils. Then using a 2 in 1 glue pen, I went over the blanket area and the heart shaped spot on the giraffe's backside. It takes a couple minutes to dry, going from blue when it's wet to clear when it's dry. I applied Abalone Pearl rub on foil to the now tacky areas. It's really cool looking in person.
The last element of this card is the vellum tag. The adoption saying is from Hambo Stamps. Before I inserted the vellum and smooshed(technical term) the tag closed, I colored spots on the aluminum tag with gold and copper leafing pens.
