Faux Tile Technique with Elegantly Said for Scoring Technique Blog Hop

Hi, Crafty People!
Today is Technique Tuesday Blog Hop Day! That means I am hopping with a fabulous group of demonstrators all around the globe. Our technique challenge is any way to use scoring, and I chose to demonstrator the faux tile technique.

The first thing you probably noticed about my card is that I only used one color-Polished Pink! This is highly unusual for me as I like a lot of different colors on my cards. Of course, Polished Pink is a lot of color!

My card base is a 11" x 4 1/4" of Thick Basic White cardstock. If you haven't tried out Thick Basic White, you should. It's great for card bases! The next layer is a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Polished Pink cardstock.

To achieve the faux tile look, I started with a piece of 5" x 3 3/4" Basic White (not the thick this time). Score it every 3/4" on the 3 3/4" side as shown below. I used our Simply Scored Scoring Tool, a tool I can't live without!

Next score the same piece every inch on the 5" side. See below.

I then stamped this piece with the flower from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Polished Pink. I adhered this piece to the Polished Pink layer, then adhered my bow around both pieces. Next, I adhered this piece to my card front. 
The Pale Papaya gems from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels were placed in the flower center.

The sentiment, from Elegantly Said, was stamped on Basic White with Polished Pink ink. It was then cut with the banner die from Tasteful Labels dies. The Polished Pink circle was also cut with a die from the same set. I adhered the two together and mounted it with dimensionals. 
One last look!

I hope you like my card and will give it a try. Please take a minutes to visit the blogs of these talented demonstrators.
