Dimensional mosaics and cards don’t normally go together. Mosaics are usually made with glass or ceramic mosaic tiles, which makes it rather heavy for a card.

On this mosaic heart card, I used wooden squares instead of tiles and painted them on my own. This also gave me more control over color, added a fun new part to the craft, and, of course, is much more cost-effective. It also keeps it lightweight and appropriate for mailing, or even just stuffing into an envelope.

 

I painted the “tiles” with nail polish in different colors for a nice, glossy finish. Acrylic paints work great too (without the gloss…)
