Black & White Mosaic Wedding Card

Hi all, so our theme today is wedding and I decided to do.......a wedding card!!! I had bought some of the new Harmonie Mosaic Tiles and have been wanting to use them, so I thought that I would show you how you can use these cute tiles on a card. I hope that you all will give them a try, as they have so many things you can do with them. I will give you a couple of ideas, after my post. So onto today's card......................

Here's the front of the card.......................................

This is the inside...........................yes I actually did the inside of the card this time..........you will see why shortly :)

And this is how it looks when you stand it up...........



Products Used:
Cardstock: Black & Kaiser Craft 6"x6" Paper Pad-After Five
Stamps: Cornish Heritage Farms-Wedding Set
Dies: Spellbinders Labels 17 & Rose Creations
Misc.: Harmonie Mini Mosaic Tiles- Black & White, Prima Say It In Crystals-Swirls Black, Misc. Rhinestone Brads & Misc. Ribbon & Crochet Velvet Trim

So I did say I would tell you a couple of ways to use the tiles..........of course you can use them like I did :), but you can also use them as a border on your card. Also, if you want to, you can leave a small space between the tiles and use the Harmonie Cement it comes in Chocolate or White. To do this you would attach your tiles using double sided adhesive but leave a space between your tiles, then you would mix up the cement according to the directions on the bottle and apply it with a spatula, making sure to push it into the cracks. Now, remove as much of the cement as you can from the top of your tiles. Then once it's dry, wipe it with a damp cloth to remove the rest of the cement that's on the top of your tiles. Basically the same idea as if you were tiling your kitchen or bathroom. So, you can create many designs using the tiles and they come in two sizes. Don't forget you can also colour these tiles with your copics to create the colour that you want. I hope you will try them.......just think of all the different patterns you could create with them by using different colours and sizes. 

For my card, I just layered some of the after five patterned papers and I also used the after five paper for my flowers, which are all cut out using the Rose Creations die. This is one of the new Spellbinders and I love this die, it has 6 flower sizes and 3 leaves, so you can make lots of layered flowers. Well I hope you enjoyed my card and how to use the tiles...........so until next time............................
