Stampin Up Elements of Style


This technique is a great way to to create the look of dominoes on your cards and projects. Actual dominoes are heavy to use and can be hard to find inexpensively but with the Faux Domino technique you can have the look without the effort.

See the step by step instructions below.

For this card, I paired Cherry Cobbler with Pink Pirouette. I like these two colours together. For more of a contrast, I added Basic Black brads and ribbon. After stamping the greeting, I punched it with the 1" circle punch and layered it onto a 1-1/4" punched circle of Basic Black cardstock.

To create a shiny finish, the dominoes can be emboss with clear embossing powder.
