Hi there! Hope you all are having a great start to your week. I am still sharing card ideas using the Spellbinders Card Kit Club and today we are looking at a card created with the inlaid die cutting technique.
I started by cutting out a rectangle using the largest normal rectangle from the Hemstitch Rectangle die set from a blue cardstock piece from my stash. On one corner, I die cut the rose outline. Then I overlaid the two leaves on either side – part of the leaf dies resting in the cut out area to make a continuous cut out. After all this die cutting I also ran the rectangle through the Love Stripes embossing folder for some added interest. Just to be on the safe side, I saved all the little pieces that came out and I was glad I did because I ended up using a tiny little corner of blue cardstock to fill in an edge.
Then I worked on my pieces to inlay and die cut
– Leaves out of green cardstock
– Outline rose from white cardstock from the kit and some bright pink cardstock from my stash.
– Inside lines of rose from pink glittery cardstock from my stash.
I did inlay the leaves but popped up the flower just a bit. For the flower I offset the two solid rose die cuts for a little something something and added glittery pink lined one on top.
For the sentiment, I die cut the word ‘smile’ three times and layered it just like the rose. As a final finishing touch, I added a few sequins and mounted the blue panel on one of the card bases from the kit.
I liked how it came out. This also gave me a blue solid rose part (which I haven’t used yet) and a couple gorgeous blue leaves, which I will share in another project tomorrow. Let me know what you think of this project. Hope you like it.
