Inlaid Detailed Floral Thinlits Cards

By | October 11, 2016

Hi there

Wasn’t it great to see the sun and feel the warmth today 🙂  I am so over all the rain we’ve been having.

Over the weekend I made a few cards with the Detailed Floral Thinlits.  These cards weren’t quick to make and were more like doing a jigsaw puzzle than making a card!

To create the card I used the Detailed Floral Thinlits die on Whisper White and ‘pushed’ all the pieces out (which you discard) just leaving the frame behind.  I then cut the two dies again from  Pool Party and Island Indigo.  This time you want to keep the ‘pushed’ out pieces and discard the frame.  Now the fun begins – sticking the pieces back into the Whisper White frame 🙂  This is what takes the time – matching up the shape with the cut out space.  Even though it takes some time to complete I’m really happy with the finished effect.  I have some other colour combinations to share soon.

This first card is for our neighbour whose birthday was yesterday and the second card is for a friend whose birthday is today – and hers was a ‘special’ birthday.  Here’s the inside of her card.

I also used the die to create a small holder for some chocolates 🙂
