It's Marion here for this week's Topical Tuesday. Due to my family's recent move, I haven't had time to put together a video, but I have created a photo tutorial instead of an inlaid die cutting technique.
Below is the tag I made using this technique.
Begin by die cutting two tags from white cardstock and three baubles from different coloured cardstock. I have used the AnnaBelle Stamps Decorated Christmas bauble dies.
Position the bauble dies onto the tag. Use tape to hold them into place so they don't shift when running through your die cutting machine.
Once you have die cut the first two baubles, die cut the third one, once again holding the die in place with some tape.
You will end up with the following.
Place the small bauble back into the die cut tag. It will fit in like a jigsaw puzzle. As this bauble overlaps with the larger bauble, place the larger bauble die back in place and run it through your die cutting machine. I held the pieces into place with some masking tape.
The result will be this.
Take the second die cut tag and be generous with your glue application. I used Tombow Mono Multi glue.
Glue the original die cut tag onto the second tag and then place the baubles into their positions. It will all fit in like a jigsaw puzzle. Trim the two baubles that hang over the outside edge of the tag with scissors.
I added a sentiment from the newly released Merry Messages stamp set with a stamp positioner and some VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I also drew in the bauble strings with a ruler and a marker and added some AnnaBelle Stamps black Licorice gingham ribbon.
The result is die cutting that is completely flush with the surface of the tag.
For a full list of the supplies I have used today, please head over to my blog.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will give this technique a try.
Until next time,
