I cut 1 inch blocks with a paper bunch and used a silver ink dot to brush the edges for an “antique” look. I secured the blocks with removable two sided tape to a piece of waxed paper and then stamped the design. I stamped leaves in silver on the background. I mounted the little squares onto a purple mat as if they were mosaic tiles, leaving a narrow space between them, and then brushed the edge of the mat with silver, the same way I did the little squares. I trimmed the mat after the squares were on it, and I when I mounted that onto the card, I off-set it (put it at an angle) for some added interest.
This was another very quick and easy card to make; the hardest part was using a stamp with multiple images that had to be lined up.

I'm so sorry if I made it seem complicated because it really isn't. (As a Newbie, I get frustrated if the instructions for something aren't detailed because things that might seem so basic are lost on me LOL).
This card was actually quite simple to make. It probably took me all of 20-25 minutes. Try it!
