Hello, my friends!! My card share today features the Spellbinders Lattice Ornaments Christmas Bells dies. I made this card to honor this week’s Featured Stamper on Splitcoaststampers, the lovely Jan (i.e., Precious Kitty). It is a pleasure to be inspired by and case one of Jan’s cards! She is a wonderful person who creates beautiful artwork and leaves the nicest comments on my work posted on Splitcoaststampers. Jan’s “Ornament and Plaid” card is the card I selected to case. This is my card:
I love the Christmas ornament and plaid paper on Jan’s card. Therefore, I created a card with two ornaments and a plaid panel. However, my ornaments are bells and except for the white and red, the colors I used are different. Also my card features the “Inked Inlay” technique.
The following provides a closeup of the inked inlay technique used. I first colored with Copics a piece of card stock in various colors. I simply colored with back and forth strokes of each color. Then I die cut the bell from this paper and a piece of white card stock. I added a strong adhesive behind the die cut on the white card stock, and laid the colored die cut bell over the white, matching the exact image. Then I pushed the colored pieces through the white card stock to create the inlay.
I used the same colored piece of card stock to die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment to place at an angle on the embossed, white card stock.
I hope you enjoy the look of the card featuring the inlay technique.
