MFT Camp Create Day 1: Inlaid Made Easy


Hi peeps,

I'm happy that the My Favorite Things Camp Create is back again with fun techniques and lots of inspiration.

The craft for Day 1 is the Inlaid Die Cutting technique which I like because the card will be flat and mail-friendly.

I came up with this card using MFT Die-namics only – there was no stamping and coloring involved ;-)

At first, I used the retired «Chevron Stripes» die and cut it from four different colors of cardstock. Next, I alternately adhered all the die-cuts on a piece of thin paper. The heart is from the «TRANSFORM-ables Heart Full of Love» Die-namics set which is retired, too. I carefully placed it over my chevron stripes and run it through my die cutting machine.

For the sentiment, I chose the «Hugs» from the «Words for Friends» set and cut it right out of the middle of my chevron striped heart. I also cut the word from white cardstock. With the two rounded and stitched rectangle dies from the «Blueprints 31» set, I was able to create a framed card. Therefore, I temporarily attached both of the dies with Micropore tape before die cutting them once from white and a second time from blue cardstock. I took the inner white piece and die cut the heart out of the middle.

Finally, the fun part could begin – the assembling/inlaying of all the die-cuts. I prepared a top-folding card base in the same size as the blue frame and covered the whole front with adhesive. Then I inlaid the white piece with the heart opening. Next, I inlaid my chevron heart into the negative space of the white cardstock and also added the white die-cut letters.

I love that in the end there's one layer and the card has no bulk. To finish it off, I added some matching enamel dots and Nuvo «Gloss White» Crystal Drops.

Here's the first Camp Create Badge that I've earned.
I'm also entering the current MFT Color Challenge 75.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
