Welcome to week 34 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Pear Pizzazz from the Subtles family and I’ve created a card using the die inlay technique.
The Artfully Layered Bundle includes the Artfully Layered Stamp Set and the Tropical Layers Dies. The two bottom dies in this photo below are ideal for the die inlay technique because they are large outline die piece with many negative pieces.
I paired Pear Pizzazz with Evening Evergreen for my die inlay card which was inspired by another die inlay card I saw on Pinterest that used these same dies with contrasting bright purples and pinks against a black background.
Any contrasting colours work really well for the die inlay technique – by pairing a soft green like Pear Pizzazz with a dark green like Evening Evergreen, both these colours really pop!
The easiest way to do die inlay is to first adhere your cardstock to an adhesive sheet before die cutting – this turns every piece into a sticker! Or you can use multipurpose liquid glue like I did today because I temporarily misplaced my adhesive sheets!
I’m so glad I finally purchased the Stitched Greenery Die – it creates such a gorgeous stitched background, just perfect for cards that feature any sort of plant or flower.
This sentiment is from the Artfully Layered Stamp Set in the Artfully Layered Bundle, stamped in Evening Evergreen and die cut using one of the Stitched Rectangle dies.
