Garden Gate Faux Inlaid Die Cutting

Hello and happy St Patricks Day! I am not a lick of Irish, but I enjoy the day.

Today I am sharing a card I made from a challenge. The challenge was for StampNation members. You could use two items to create your card, plus accessories (colors, inks, watercolors, sequins etc.). The two items I chose were a some what intricate die cut and a stamp for the sentiment.

The white spots are actually glitter.

For my die cut, I used Catherine Pooler’s Garden Gate die.

Garden Gate

I embossed the die in my Gemini. I colored the raised area’s with Copic markers, using two colors per area.

Shortly after this photo, my V09 exploded all over everything and I had to start over. This is why my finished design is different from this one. The Copics used are as follows…The blues are B23 and B97. The pale green is YG11 and YG41. Purple is V04 and V09. Blue Green is BG13 and BG18 and Pink is RV13 and RV25

Completed Project

Once I completed coloring the embossed panel, I ran the Garden Gate die through my die cutting machine and sprayed the die cut with Elmers Spray adhesive. I lined everything up and glued it to the embossed panel. I colored the entire thing with Clear Wink of Stella. I then adhered the die cut to an A2 size cardbase.

My sentiment is from the Catherine Pooler Sincere Thanks stamp set. I heat embossed the sentiment with Lime Ricky embossing powder. I adhered the sentiment, then trimmed the sides to match the shape of the die cut. I added some Blackfoot Sequins and my card was complete.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great rest of your week!
