Technique Tuesday #7

Hi everyone!

Welcome to this weeks Technique Tuesday. Each Tuesday I share a technique that can be applied to many forms of paper crafting ~ card making, scrapbooking, albums and tags.

This week’s technique: INLAID DIE CUTS.

This technique is called Inlaid Die Cuts because it sort of uses the same method and has the look of wood inlays. Basically, you end up with a smooth surface even though there is die cutting involved making this a very “mail friendly” card.

You will need: die/dies, cardstock, background paper, tape runner or liquid glue, die cutting machine {I use the Cuttlebug}.

1}Run the dies/cardstock through the die cutting machine and carefully remove them. Then die cut the shapes in the background piece where they are to be added in. 2}Layer the die cut background piece onto a cardstock panel cut 1/8″ larger for both the width and length.

3}Apply some tape runner or liquid glue in the empty spaces and fit in the die cuts ~ just like a puzzle! The end result is a unique touch but still a nice smooth card front.

To finish off this project, I adhered the die cut panel to a white note card, brushed some Wink of Stella on the flower petals, stamped a greeting and added some sequins.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks technique. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. See you next time!

Until next time,
