Inlaid Butterfly Die

Stampin Up Butterfly Thinlits, Inlaid Die Technique, CAS cards


AAA Cards and Happy Stampers want us to use the 'inlaid die' technique.




I'm also skipping over to Di's playground as the teeny weeny inlaid snippets were left over from a card I made recently.
Unfortunately I can't show you said card, as it is going to be published in the August edition of Craft Stamper magazine!
Whoop, whoop!

Anyway, back to this card ... I made a graduated rainbow background with my Brushos and die cut a butterfly from it and painstakingly pushed out the inlaid die pieces in the corrext order for re-insertion in a white version of the butterfly die.
It was VERY fiddly to do and did require the proverbial amount of patience.
Even though I love the finished effect of the card, it's not a technique I'll be rushing to do again!
Phew

  2. Double wow from me Lindsey - what a fabulous card and your butterfly is just stunning. I love the graduated colours - and well done for Percy Veering with those fiddly little pieces. I adore inlaid die cutting but, like you, find it can really test the patience levels! Great to see you in the Playgound!

    Hugs

  13. You are right Lindsey these inlaid techniques do test the patience levels but it was certainly worth the effort as it is a very pretty CAS card. x
