How to Create a Checker Board Style Card

Do you have punches that are laying around because you don’t know how to use them?  Today I will share a quick and easy way for you to use yours.

Supplies:  Cuttlelbug, square Nestabilities (or use a square punch), decorative punch and cardstock

Cut three square with your Nestabilities square

With your decorative punch, punch out the center of each square.

Cut out your mat 1/4″ larger than the square.  Cut out different colours of mat so that your punched image looks different with each square.

Mat your square.

A different tutorial every Tuesday.
