Perky Poppy

Hello~ Judy Woodland here again with another inspirational card for you. 
This time I am doing a little inlay work.

One of the things I love about open die images is the fact that it's so easy to do the inlay technique. I started by creating a base with black card stock, then cut a mat with red and finished off with a white panel. Then I began to create the inlay.

Here's how I did it:

 First I cut the poppy in gold foil card stock with the Memory Box Perky Poppy die. Then I cut it again in red, green and black, and saved the insides of the die cuts. 

The red pieces were sponged with red ink and then inlaid into the gold die cut. The black and green pieces were glued over the gold since there were no open spaces for these.

 Next I cut the embellishments in red and black with Elizabeth Crafts Ribbons and Jewels dies. I wove the two pieces together. It's very easy to do with these die cuts.

 Then I put it all together. The greeting is a Waffle Flower Year Round Words die.

These are the dies I used:

Memory Box - Dies - Perky Poppy

 Elizabeth Craft Designs - Ribbon & Jewels

 Waffle Flower - Dies - Year Round Words

I hope you will try the inlay technique. It's really quite easy, you can get amazing results!!
