colorful tree...


One of these days I am going to go absolutely crazy and use every color on one of these challenges...not today!
I chose gold rush, smoothie and peach as they were the colors in the patterned paper I had from “love nicole autumn splendor”.
The base card is white card stock.
To get the main piece I die cut the patterned paper, gold card stock and dark pink card stock with Taylored Expressions “Shade Tree Cutting Plate”.
In order to get that “inlaid” effect I cut a piece of double back film and applied the frame with tree piece.
Next, like a jig saw puzzle, I applied the dark pink and gold pieces.
This I applied to the dark pink piece before applying it to the base card.
To finish I die cut the “hello” from “love nicole” using the gold card stock and glued it to the card front.

I love the inlaid die cutting technique, and this is a wonderful example Arlene. Your colours are stunning too.

Great technique, Arlene! I also enjoy making inlay designs but haven't done it for a while. Thanks for the inspiration!
