Welcome to the August TOTALLY TECHNIQUE BLOG HOP where we are featuring a technique called INLAY DIE CUTTING. It's fun and easy and has a definite wow factor on your cards! Here's a video tutorial to show you how I made my cards today:

I chose to use the PLAYING WITH PATTERNS 6" X 6" DESIGNER SERIES PAPER because I love the playful colors and patterns. I think it was a good choice. The card base below is Calypso Coral and I chose it based on the coordinating colors in the DSP.
I combined the DETAILED HEARTS DIE with the stamp set called RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME for a fun message stamped in Memento Black ink on a layer of Coastal Cabana die cut from the RECTANGLE STITCHED DIES. I added a bow using the WHISPER WHITE CRINKLED SEAM BINDING for the final touch.
- Calypso Coral 11" x 4 1/4" scored at 5 1/2" & scraps
- Coastal Cabana 4" x 5 1/4" & scraps
- Playing with Patterns DSP 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" & 2 1/2" x 6" (envelope flap)
- Whisper White 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" & 4" x 5 1/4"
Here's a photo of the insides of both cards. I added the little left over hearts as an embellishment. Those are the tiny little things you can do to make your cards special inside and out.
The card uses the same products - just different colors. I chose the Calypso Coral polkadot pattern to die cut the DETAILED HEARTS DIE and filled in with hearts from the Whisper White heart layer from the first card. The layer under the hearts is DSP from the PLAYING WITH PATTERNS pack. I love the watercolor texture on that layer.
I chose to use the STITCHED SHAPES DIES for the square sentiment layer and added a couple of the polkadot hearts to embellish that layer.
- Whisper White Thick 11" x 4 1/4" scored at 5 1/2"
- Playing With Patterns DSP 2 @ 4" x 5 1/4"
- Whisper White scrap
