Love Ink Blended Card with Inlaid Die Cutting


Hi everyone! It's Chrissie here, I am so excited to be back on Catherine's blog, sharing a card I made with the amazing supplies from the Love is in the Air Collection! These supplies can be used for Valentine's Day, but beyond that, too.

To make this card, start out by trimming out a piece of white cardstock to 4.25 x 11 and score it at 5.5. This will be the card base. Trim another piece of white cardstock to 4 x 5.25 inches and one more to 3.75 x 5. The smallest one is the front panel.

On this panel, blend Be Mine, Sweet Sixteen, Flirty Fuchsia and It's A Girl using a blending tool or a dauber. Stamp the hearts from Bon Boyage in Be Mine onto this panel. Then, flick some water onto it all. The water will react with the ink and leave splotches. Set aside and let dry.

Die cut Love from the Love die in white cardstock and in Midnight (black) cardstock. You can add adhesive to the back before or after die cutting, depending upon your preference. If the front panel is completely dry, also die cut the sunburst from the Sunburst die out of the center. Keep both the cut and the negative space.

Place the panel (now the negative space) onto the card panel that is 4 x 5.25. Also add the sunburst back in place and adhere it. This creates an inlaid die cut. The background has so much interest between the die cut, colors, water and stamping! Add the white “love” die cut to the front center and then place the black die cut onto it, just a little offset to the left. The white will show up a tiny amount, making the black die cut really pop.

Adhere this to the card base using foam squares to finish up the card. Create a coordinating envelope by stamping items from the Happiness Enclosed set using the same ink colors.
