Sorry, didn’t quite know how to title this post this morning! I recently did a Technique Class and this was the prototype to the card we actually did in class…that one we used Vintage Leaves to stamp the background, this one I used the Into the Woods Designer Paper! Thanks to Amy Kunkle for the idea of using leaves for this Inlaid Words technique! I also recently posted a snowflake one HERE…if you missed it…using a slightly altered take on the idea of inlaid words!
Here are the details for remaking this card:
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Crumb Cake folded in half.
- A 4×4 piece of Into the Woods DSP was added to the right side of a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Old Olive,
- Some 1/4 Early Espresso Ribbon hides the seam and adheres behind the Old Olive layer, then adhere the layer to the base card.
- Two leaves were cut from Tangelo Twist and Early Espresso cardstock. The Tangelo Twist leaf was cut in half with the Hello Greetings Thinlet, then an additional Hello was cut from Old Olive cardstock.
- Add the bottom portion of the Tangelo Twist leaf to the Early Espresso leaf, then add the Old Olive Hello, then add the top portion of the Tangelo Twist leaf to the top of the Early Espresso leaf. The word “Hello” is inlaid into the leaf! TIP: Offset the Tangelo Twist leaf on the Early Espresso leaf for a slightly different look!
- Cut a 3/4 x 4 strip of Hello Honey cardstock with flag ends and place on the front of the card.
- Finish off by adding the leaf to Crumb Cake cardstock cut with the Circle Framelit, and a little Early Espresso Ribbon tied in a bow around the stem of the leaf. Pop up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Hope you like it! NO stamping on here which is different for me! lol!
