It's a Beautiful Summer Day!

Yayyyyyy!! You're here!
(Waving hello quite happily!)

Donna, here, and I'm SO glad you could stop by for a little Dies R Us Inspiration!

Today's technique is once again a simple design idea, 
but saves on card bulkiness to help with postage rates. 

Combining Layers and Die Cut Inlays



My cards use the following Dies R Us Products:

Spellbinders Grand Stately Cirles, and Grand Circles
Spellbinders Classic Circles
Spellbinders Decagon Nestabilities
First, determine which dies and colors you would like to use.
Decide if there are any areas where dies can be "nestled in" for an inlaid design.


The green card needed a bit of white behind the tan round accent. A white inlay was die cut using Sue Wilson's Ornate Pierced Squares, featuring the pierced dots around the edge for visual interest:


The image has also been die cut using the same circle as the frame.
Below, dark green is inlaid below the decorative circles. 
I wish the photography was better for darker colors so you could see the piercing.


I preferred the decagon shape instead of the round shape:


A close up to view the layers and inlaid portions:


The interior is also framed, using the external portion of the Ornate Pierced Squares.
There are pierced details in every section of the "left overs".


You might prefer Sue Wilson's French Collection - Borders, Corners, Tags which are lovely and ornate:
