Inlaid die cutting with Hero Arts Frame Cut


Hello hello,


June’s challenge theme here at a2z is “To Die For”, so I am trying different ways to use my cutting dies.  And I am inspired to use the Inlaid Die Cutting technique.  For my card today, I’ve also decorated the inside.







My process:

  • On a pink (with stripe) pattern paper same size as card base, use pencil to lightly mark where the three butterfly die should go.
  • Die cut three butterflies (from the Flower and Butterfly Frame Cut) using green pattern paper, put aside.
  • Die cut butterfly on left edge and right edge first, set the cut outs aside.  Secure corresponding green butterflies in place.
  • Die cut the center butterfly.  Secure the green pattern die cut in place.
  • Die cut with stitched rectangle.
  • Adhere all pieces to card front.
  • Stamps sentiment (from the Flower and Butterfly Frame Cut) and sequins (from the Stamp and Cut Congrats set) to card front.
  • Use clear glaze pen to highlight the stamped sequins.
  • Glue the pink butterfly cut out inside the card along the center fold.  Stamp the body of the butterfly from the Color Layering Butterfly set.
  • Stamp greeting inside card.

Hop over to my blog to see who inspired me and check out a second card I did using this technique.

I hope I’ve inspired you to join in the challenge, you could win a $25 gift card to the a2z Scrapbooking Supplies Store.
