Every Leaf Speaks Bliss

Happy Tuesday!

I'm back again to share with you more from Die-Namites Dies today.  I had been thinking about trying a new technique and knew one of their intricate dies would be perfect.  So here is how I did a double inlay technique using the Die-Namites  Leafy Flourish die.

I used my die twice - once on the deep red circle shape and once on the green paper.  I removed both die cuts from the papers.  I took the positive green die cut and inserted it into the negative red die cut space.  It laid perfectly in the negative space.  I used tape on the back of my circle to hold everything in place.

Then I cut a matching circle into my green embossed card front and did my inlay technique again.  This time I laid the red circle right into the negative space of the green card front.

I matted my card front and added my paper flowers and brads before attaching everything to a sturdy white card base.

I hope you will try this technique.  I already plan to use it again soon!!

I'll be back tomorrow with a fun digital layout for you.
