Seamless Diecutting

 Hello friends!

I have a simple Toucan card with lots of tropical vibe and colors.  This bird image is easy to color and I had no trouble in finding inspiration from Pinterest.

Featured products (linked at the end of this post): Tropical Toucan Stamp & Die Bundle, Warp Speed Stencil, Halftone Hearts Nesting Die, Wild Flora Wide Washi Tape , Elegant Foil Stripe Washi Tape

Once I chose the Wild Floral Washi Tape, I took the color inspiration and went with it. If you look closely, you can see that I die cut the Toucan OVER the heart.

I then popped the Toucan back in and adhered it with Washi Tape on the back. Thus, the heart and birdie are in one piece. This is one "technique" that I do often and I don't think there is a term for it.

 I'd call it "Seamless Die-cutting".

I love how the stencils and Washi Tape can give you instant boost of interest and colors. Altenew-Tropical Toucan Stamp & Die Bundle-Warp Speed Stencil-Halftone Hearts Nesting Die-Wild Flora Wide Washi Tape -Elegant Foil Stripe Washi Tape -001

This truly is a fun card that I know my son David will love! He has completed his Masters degree in San Diego, California! It's been a while that we saw him since last Christmas! I plan to mail this to him and give him a surprise!

LOve that toucan. Think diecutting and inlaying him into the heart is brilliant. Makes the whole card seamless.
