Baker's Dozen Card Event #2 Inlay Technique

Inlay Technique
Giving Thanks with the Botanical Builder Dies

Day two has a special project in store!  Instead of die cutting the thanks sentiment and adhering it to the top of the Soft Sky Layering Circle, I die cut the sentiment into the circle and placed the Soft Suede thanks into the negative space.  It takes a little bit more work, but really adds interest! 

A Thick Whisper White top folding card creates the base of this card.  Next, Shimmery White Cardstock provides the perfect surface to paint a light watercolor wash in Blushing Bride offering a contrast of color, softening the background.  The other layered elements includes a shortened fishtail banner from the Banners Framelits and two die cuts from the Layering Circles Framelits with the thanks inlaid within the top circle.    

To add a little balanced beauty and whimsy, embellishments include a gold embossed bee from the Dragonfly Bundle, flowers from the Botanical Builder Dies in Whisper White, Blushing Bride, and a gold script from the the Neurtrals Designer Series Paper.  A few little Pearl Basic Jewels added to the center of each flower finishes the card along with a white embossed for your kindness.   

I love the color scheme of this card!  These pastels have been my go to lately when creating in my studio!  This inlay technique was inspired by the awesome Jennifer McGuire! Click on her name to view the video to try it out yourself!
