Hi Everyone, today, I want to share with you how you can easily make two cards at the same time with just a little bit of paper. This is called the inlay technique is a perfect way to be creative when supplies are limited. I made one card as a portrait layout and the other as a landscape layout for two different looks. However, it is optional how you want to do it.
To make this card,
Score your Basic white card base at 4 1/4″ then fold and crease with your bone folder. In this case, I used the thick Basic White card stock but you can also use regular white card stock.
Take the Night of Navy card stock and punch out three daisies using the Daisy Punch evenly spaced. Now repeat with the patterned paper the exact same way. You now have three solid daisies and three patterned daisies and two cut out stencil pieces
TIP: I marked my paper with a pencil at the 1″, 2 3/4″ and 4 1/2″ down the center of the paper. It made it easier to line up and center the daisy with the Medium Daisy punch
Adhere the solid card stock to the front of the card and then add glue to the patterned daisies and place them inside the cut out portion of the card stock. Do not use dimensional’s because you want them to appear inlayed within the card stock
For your second card, I did the same in reverse but this time I turned my card to a portrait layout. I attached the patterned paper, on my second card, then inlayed the solid daisies for contrast. Pretty cute right?
For the daisy centres, I embossed a couple of pieces of scrap card stock with the Hammered Metal embossing folder. You could use any embossing pattern for this. I then used the small blossom punch (retired) to punch out a couple of flowers from each colour and used a dimensional to add them to the center of the flowers and contrasted them for added interest. Don’t have that Punch? A small circle or flower die would also work, .
For the flower centres, I coloured Basic Pearls with the dark Night of Navy blender pen and adhered them to the centre with a glue dot. I love how those pearls can be coloured to match up with whatever your are working on. It makes them very versatile.
I then stamped my sentiments to complete the cards. I also stamped the daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp onto the envelope. I love stamping envelopes, don’t you? It just finishes it off
You now have two very cute cards and how easy was that?
