Inlay Heart
by Sue McRae

Welcome everyone, Sue here with a blog blitz post featuring Valentine's Day goodies and products from the new 2017 release.

Today I'm using the Inlay Heart die as the focal image of my card. I took water colour paints in yellow, orange, pink and red and covered a sheet of water colour paper with no particular plan. Just some fun messy painting. Then I die cut the heart from this piece and and inlaid it into the yellow card stock.

I took one of the dies from the Delicate Stitches set and placed it below the heart, leaving enough room to add my sentiment later. I ran it through my Big Shot and it left a pretty pattern in the card stock. I also decided to embellish the two top corners using this die. The Delicate Stitches set contains three dies which don't cut through the paper, they cut the pattern into the paper. Great for adding pretty details anywhere on your project.

My last step was to die cut the Scribble Thank You from the yellow card stock and then die cut it from black card stock and inlay it.

I am giving away the Inlay Heart die to one lucky person who leaves a comment.

Such a pretty card! Love it ♥

I love any of the heart dies!

Beautiful card. Reminds me of a Stainglass window. Love the colors that you used, the yellow is a nice twist.

Beautiful inlay!

Cool card, very cheery. I see lots of potential for the Inlay Heart die. It would be fun to send it as a puzzle to a kid (or a big kid LOL).

This is gorgeous, Sue! I love the pinks and the yellow! It's fun and unique and they work so well together!

Pretty die makes a pretty card, but the bits of stitching really pull it all together.

lovely card and great colours

Fantastic card! I like the colours combo :)

Sue, this is my favorite by far! Love, love, love the Inlay Heart die. In fact, I want all three dies you used so I can CASE this card. The color combos are endless.

Not that I "need" another heart die, but this one is fantastic, and your card really shows what it can do.

That inlaid heart is loaded with possibilities, and Pam, you made the die sing. Your whole card is done with inlays, and those "stitches" took it all up a notch. Thank you for the note that the dies would only emboss the image and not cut any of it out. For my money, there can never be too many hearts, even when it's not Valentine's day. Thank you!

Like the wonderful background showing thru the inlay heart.
