Every Leaf Speaks Bliss to Me

Susie here with a new post for Die-Namites.

Here is a look at the new Leafy Flourish die.  I wanted to see if I could do something I hadn't tried before with a die.  I wanted to try my hand at making a die cut inlay.
So here is the Die-namites die:

And here is the card I made using this technique:

I used my die twice - once on the deep red circle shape and once on the green paper.  I removed both die cuts from the papers.  I used the positive green die cut and inserted it into the negative red die cut space.  It laid perfectly in the negative space.  I used tape on the back of my circle to hold everything in place.

Then I cut a matching circle into my green embossed card front and did my inlay technique again.  This time I laid the red circle right into the negative space of the green card front.

I matted my card front and added my paper flowers and brads before attaching everything to a sturdy white card base.

  Here is a close up so you can see how everything looks like one smooth layer because of the inlay technique.  I hope you'll try it soon.

I would love to see what you make with Die-Namites dies and the different techniques you discover with our wonderfully versatile dies!
