Pool Mosaic - hello

Hi there!

I've had the idea for today's card for a while now, and when I saw the cue card at Casology yesterday, I knew the opportunity arrived !

... and ...

It's another card made with colored card stock scraps !

My card is inspired by the beautiful blue mosaic tiles found in most swimming pools. I just love the effect of the glossy accents. Just amazing how many designs are possible with simple shapes. I've cut my squares with my Silhouette cameo, but this can easily be created using a square punch or small die... and if you're really patient, you can cut squares with a craft knife and ruler !

I used the grid (see last photo) to get perfect placement of my 'tiles'.

 I used :

  • Squares cut out of 4 different shades of blue card stock
  • Vellum
  • Glossy accents
  • Silhouette cameo
  • Hello sentiment cutting file from Love svg
  • Foam squares

Challenge detail:

Thanks for visiting me today and thank you Casology for the inspiration!

Hi Hannelie! This is such a great idea and so glad that this prompt came up! It’s perfect! This reminds me of all the blue/white tile work I saw when we were on vacation in Portugal - clean, bright and beautiful! Take care!

So iconic - I knew what this was just by looking at the thumbnail submission! The glaze on the cardstock tiles is the perfect touch! Thank you for joining us at CASology!

I love the bold "pool" colors of your tiny squares. They make the perfect background for your sentiment. Your graphic designs are always so much fun!
