Inlay with Seasonal Layers Branch

#EasyTechnique:  Diecut Inlay

Today's card is a slightly different take on the standard die cut card. On most cards with a die cut image you'd simply glue the die cut image to the card. For this card I did an Inlay Technique.

The difference with an inlay is that the part you die cut is flush with the surface of the card. You can see it in the image below. If you ran your finger across the card you'd feel that the card and branch are the same level. The snowflake is not inlaid so it sits on top the white piece.

Indicator of an INKcredibly Easy Technique when you have the right toolsIts actually very easy to do.  All you need is a tool to cut the shape.  Pick your favorite die or try using a punched shape.
  • Die cut your focal piece (in this case it was the branch)
  • Die cut a HOLE where you want the image
  • Glue the diecut (or punched) piece into the hole
NOTE: You will need a backing piece on which to glue them.  In other words, this can not be a 1 layer card.

I went simple with the snowflake ornament by simply drawing a line for the string  and added a red rhinestone to the center.

This really was an easy project and I encourage you to try this technique. Check out your own dies at home. If you want to make this particular  project I have links below to the product I used.

I'll have more techniques to share in future posts. Exciting things are coming. I've been playing with product from the new Occasions Catalog (which goes live in January). Yesterday's post used some of that new product and I'll have lots more ideas to share in the coming weeks. 

Let me know you if need a catalog. My email is in the header of the blog.

I hope I've inspired you. I'm happy to answer questions about this or any other project.
