Holiday Card Workshop 2013 – Homework for Day 2

The second day of class focused on layered die cut inlay, suspended die cuts, positive and negative die cuts, and unique die cut folds!  My absolute favorite of the techniques is the die cut inlay technique.  I think the more detailed the die cut, the more striking the inlay technique!  It is a technique that can stand on it’s own – without a lot of fuss or embellishment.  You just have to make sure you keep ALL the bits that are die cut!  On the two cards I made below, after I die cut the image, I carefully lifted the entire piece of paper from the plate and put a piece of Eclipse masking sheet over the entire die cut- this kept all the tiny pieces in order and made it easier to find the pieces that went into the inlay.  I die cut a green piece of paper and a kraft piece of paper and then switched the main image for the inlays.

ImageThe image was so elegant on it’s own, I put the sentiment on the inside of the card.  It reads “Joy & Peace , Wishing You the Happiest of Holidays” and is from Hero Arts.

Supplies:

  • Card bases/panels – Ponderosa Pine Linen from paperandmore.com; Kraft cardstock from kraftoutlet.com
  • Inside – Neenah Solar White
  • Die – Memory Box Flowering Christmas Tree Die
  • Ink – Ranger Adirondack Bottle Pigment Ink (for stamping inside sentiment)

Happy Holiday Hugs! Stephanie
