One technique I have been wanting to try for a while is die cut inlaying. I needed some Thank You cards and so thought this would be a perfect opportunity to try it and also break out my Hi There Bear stampset from Concord & 9th.
Using brown and pink cardstock, I cut a card panel from each with my stitched rectangle dies. Then using individual letter alphabet dies, I cut out the word THANKS down the one side of each. I glued the card panel to the front of a note card and inlayed the opposite color letters into each one – saving the little piece from the A for each one so I did not lose it.
I then stamped the bear from the stamp set in two different Momento ink colors as well the umbrella and cut each out with the coordinating dies.
I added a embossed scripty friendship background to each cardpanel with Ranger Bridal Tinsel embossing powder. I then glued the bear and the umbrella handle onto the card and popped the umbrella up with foam squares. I then added a good amount of Wink of Stella to the umbrellas.
I loved how the cards turned out and decided to make two more.
