Neat & Tangled Birthday - Hooray Die Inlaid Two Ways



Hey everyone!  Hope that you were able to stop by the Neat & Tangled blog to see the whole birthday mini-release yesterday.

Today I'm showcasing the other product that I have in this release - the Hooray die.

This first card is really quick and easy and would be great for making a quick card set.

The die was cut from watercolor cardstock (I was actually going to watercolor, but I liked the look of it in the cream, so decided to try that another time).  Then I took a blue cardstock mat and die cut again, removing the actual die cut in order to use the negative cut.

I took a panel of woodgrain cardstock cut just smaller than the blue and added adhesive to the outside.  The blue panel was then adhered on top.



I added adhesive using a glue pen into the detailed spaces where the leaves and flowers are and inlaid the white frame piece.  Note: before I inlaid the piece, I added a bit of adhesive to the sentiment portion of the die cut.

For the next card I reversed the inlay.



The wreath piece was cut from MFT Smooth White cardstock, and it was colored with Copics.  Then I cut another wreath from the white cardstock, but used just the inside pieces which were inlaid onto a scrap circle of cardstock.

The entire piece was then popped up over some patterned paper.



OK, head on over to the Neat & Tangled blog to take part in the blog hop (this isn't an official stop).  And, if you just have to have this right now, you're in luck.  The entire mini-release is available in the Neat & Tangled store right now!

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day!
