Spellbinders | Inlay Die Cutting with Double Sided Sticky Sheets. Video (Large Die Of The Month – June)

Hello friends! Today I’m sharing a Birthday card tutorial featuring a super old but still fabulous technique – inlay die cutting. This technique has been around for ages and there are many many different ways to do it, one of my favorite ways is to use it with some sort of double sided adhesive sheets to make the whole process much easier and honestly – much faster.

The die that I used to do the inlay die cutting is Spellbinders Large Die Of the Month for the month of June 2018. This month its 2 beautiful oversized corner floral dies. These both look fabulous when die-cut on their own (like I shared here) or with the inlay die cutting.

VIDEO TUTORIAL

As always, I filmed a video tutorial showing how to create this project from start to finish. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it. Watch it below or on my Youtube channel:

CARDS DETAILS

I went with white, light blue and light gray colors for my card today. I also used blue fun foam (I prefer to use white, but I have no white left at the moment so I decided to start depleting my stash of colored fun foam and thus picked blue as it matched best in color to my card) and double sided sticky sheets from Scrapbook Adhesives.

I like to use fun foam with my die cuts because I like the look of extra dimension on my cards. And fun foam will give you impressive dimension with just one layer and it will keep your card very light (so it will not weigh a lot in terms of postage).

You can use cardstock and just die-cut a number of cardstock die cuts, adhere them together and have the same look, but its going to take longer, because instead of adhering 2 layers – a cardstock and a fun foam layer, you are actually adhering 4 or 5 layers together and that takes time.

I started working on my card by adding a sheet of double-sided adhesive onto each size of my fun foam. Next, I die-cut it using my corner floral die in my Platinum machine. I adhered my fun foam die cut onto a background and next started on my inlay process. I used a white die cut for the ouline and next inlaid leaves using a light blue color and flowers using a dark blue.

Once my focal piece was complete I also die-cut another corner floral out of white cardstock and used it to fill in the background on my card to create a lace like floral background. I feel like this adds a ton of interest and makes it much more elegant and delicate looking.

To create a sentiment I stamped Happy Birthday using Messages for Every Day stamp set from Simon Says Stamp, I was in need of a Birthday card, I cut it into a strip and foam mounted onto the card – I actually did two strips. Finally I embellished this card using pretty sequins in similar colors.

MORE INSPIRATION

Here are photos of the other two cards I made using this die set:

I ink blended pigment inks from Avery Elle to create a pop of color, die cut it and inlayed into a white floral outline. I added Hugs To You sentiment and white Nuvo Drops to complete this card.

To make this card I heat embossed floral die cut (together with the negative die cut pieces) using Antique Gold embossing powder from Simon Says Stamp. Next, I blended Rosie Cheeks and Deep Sea inks onto two cardstock panels to create paper of the color that I needed. I die-cut both and inlayed into my gold outline.

    1. Such gorgeous cards! Love the colors. Hope your day is great

    1. Another fabulous technique demonstrated by yourself Yana. This is a very tricky technique with all the bits of die cut pieces but as you say using sticky backgrounds both sides helps a lot. I do though think the technique is very, very effective and I will be continuing to use it with my large detailed dies. Thank you for sharing this with us crafters Yana. :O)

    1. Beautiful card for many occasions indeed. I really enjoy the inlay technique. Thanks for the tips using sticky paper and fun foam.
