Hello all! In today’s video I create bold patterned focal points by combining nesting dies and inlaid diecutting. Watch as I create lots of contrast by simply rotating the diecuts of simple ink blended panels. I also see how I create acetate card base from transparency sheets!
Inlaid Diecuts with Blended Panels and Transparency Card Base
Watch below or on my YouTube channel.
First, I ink blended panels created with either the largest square, circle, or oval from the nesting sets with Distress Oxides. I then die cut the panels with every other die from the nesting sets. Next, I adhered the panels back together on another a black panel but this time I alternated the orientation of the diecuts to create contrast.
Next, I stamped and die cut “Happy Retirement”. I also stamped and white heat embossed a second part of my sentiment onto black cardstock and then trimmed it down to a strip.
I then stamped the inside sentiment onto an A2 panel of white cardstock. I then scored and folded a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ sheet of acetate in half to create a card base.
I then glued the stamped A2 panel to the inside of the acetate card base and then glued a second blank A2 white panel to the back side of the the card base to hide the glue. I trimmed the inlaid die cut then glued it to the front of the card and on the inside adhered a matching shaped die cut to hide glue.
Lastly, I finished my cards by adhering my sentiments to the inlaid die cut panel on the front of my cards.
I hope you enjoyed today’s cards and video! Thank you so much for stopping by!
