Hello artzy friends… Helen is here. Today I wanna share with you all one of the ways of using the new Hot Air Balloon Slimline Die. I used the inlaid die cutting technique to make this slimline card. This technique is fun and for me it is also relaxing becuase it feels like I play with puzzle pieces.
First, I cut all the cardstocks with the Hot Air Balloon Slimline Die. The cardstocks I used are white, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, magenta, and purple. Yes… they are the rainbow colors!!! I put all the pieces of each color separately in a coffee filter.
To make inlaid die cutting easier, I used the Press-n-Seal plastic to hold all the piece in place. I put the white panel upside down on the plastic. then I started filling the spaces with the pieces for the other colors.
This is how it looks from the back of the panel. Carefully I added double-sided tape on the panel. This is when I was so glad that I decided to use the Press-n-Seal plastic, that held each piece in place and I did have to worry about they moved when I added the tape on it.
After that, I carefully removed the Press-n-Seal plastic of the panel. I removed the backing of the double sided tape and I added the finished Hot Air Balloon inlaid die cutting background panel on the front of the card. I used bone folder to firmly press the panel on the card.
I decided to add the sentiment on this card using the Hello Word Die. I cut a piece of black cardstock for the word hello and a piece of white cardstock for the word background mat. I stacked them together with dries-clear permanent adhesive and I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.
I love how it turned out! Isn’t that one colorful and fun card? I hope you can try this inlaid technique using any of the Artzy Dies! Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you all have wonderful day!!!
