There is a new challenge in the blogosphere: The Cutting Edge where the challenges will be focused on die-cutting (either with a metal die or an electronic cutting machine).
This first challenge provided 6 different cards for inspiration. One of the cards used the inlaid die technique. I haven’t tried this technique yet and thought it would be fun to give it a go.
When looking through my index to decide which dies to use I figured this technique would be awesome to do bright colors on a black background (something I *love* but have a hard time creating with other methods).
I ended up designing quite a composition as a first time card – lots of layers, but I love how it turned out!
There is a tiny bit of stamping – the centers of the flowers are stamps – but the leaves are two die cuts!
Thanks for taking a peek!
