Creative Die-Cutting

Hello friends!

Today's card is about die-cutting!
Normally, when we do die-cutting, we would use the cut piece and use it for our focal point or embellishments. I am combining a few things into today's card.
I am using Handpicked Bouquet as my example.

hello dearest friend

Starting from the top: there is Inlaid Die-cutting and Partial Die-cutting.
At the bottom, it is Dry-embossing with the Die-cut

hello dear friend (2)

I love using the same stamps and dies and try out different ways of using them.
That's the main reason why I keep coming back  for more!
hello dear friend-001

The gold specks are from the Nuvo Radiant Gilding Gold Flakes.
I just love a few random gold drops.
hello dear friend

I decided to stamp the sentiment on the flat surface of the flower die cut flower.
Kind of neat, huh?
Handpicked Bouquet is super popular....

Lovely card you have there. Love that you've combined techniques in one card. The Handpicked Bouquet is a favorite of mine, too. I just need to buy it. =)-Maria Giselle B. (https://ienjoywhatido.blogspot.com)

When you use dry embossing, I pretend that you made the card for me. Silly, I know, but I just love how you use it and combing it with partial is awesome. To gild the lily, so to speak, adding florals to stripes is always a winner, in my book.

Your cards are so beautiful Virginia, I especially like the inlay on your first card, so elegant looking.
Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.

This card is so pretty! I love the Handpicked Bouquet set! You have made so many great cards using it. This may be my favorite. I love the partial diecuts and inlaid die cutting combined in one card. The touch of gold is such a ice touch.

What a stunner of techniques all mixed together. Love the idea of the partial and inlaid in one corner and the dry embossing in the other. Inspiring to say the least.
