Inlaid die cutting - Poinsettia

I have another card for Winnie&Walter's belated 2nd birthday bash.

I stamped the poinsettia image from W&W's In bloom: Elsa's florals repeatedly onto a white panel and my red card base (SSS) using red ink (Grapevine, Altenew) and my MISTI, and then trimmed down my white panel on all sides. After marking where I wanted to place my Merry sentiment (W&W), I first cut away the strip where I wanted the red cs to show and then temporarily put the pieces back together using some post-it tape at the back of my panel. This made it easier to die cut the sentiment from my panel with the correct spacing. I then die cut the sentiment again from a piece of thin gold paper that I had mounted onto a scrap of cardstock. Using the (hardly visible) stamping on my red cardstock, I adhered the top part of my stamped panel, followed by the die cut sentiment and the lower part of my stamped panel.

  11. So pretty, Marianne ... love how you split that lovely poinsettia panel ... the gold sentiment is gorgeous against it! Just enjoyed a wander through all your W&W Birthday Bash projects ... wow ... they're all fabulous ... I was especially taken with the gelato leafy rainbow and the two brushos on pearlescent card stock ... stunners, all three! Hugs, Anita :)
