Foil In-Laid Petal Cut Peonies

Hello! It’s LauraJane, Hope your weekend was fabulous!

Today I have a card that uses the In-Laid die cut technique with the Petal Cut Peonies Standalone Dies. The task could be pretty challenging without the help of a household product, Press’n Seal. Here is a card I made previously with regular colored cardstock. For today, I’m using  Adhesive Foiled Papers.

The Process:

 

  • Moving on to the peonies,I started out by cutting two large blooms from Petal Cut Peonies Standalone Dies on Adhesive Foil Paper – Purple .Very carefully, with the paper cuts still in the metal dies, I firmly pressed plastic PRESS’n SEAL over the entire bloom backing. Gently pulling the die out of the metal and flipped it over, leaving the whole die cut on the PRESS’n SEAL.
  • Repeat this entire step with Adhesive Foil Paper – Light Pink  (Now I have Four cut peonies, two in Purple, and Two in Light pink)
  • Next, I peel off the outline of one bloom from the PRESS’n SEAL, leaving some of the inner cuts on the plastic, a small stylus can be used to help push the inner cuts from the outline.
  • Now place the outline cut on the card front and piece, or In-lay, the smaller inner cuts back inside the outline using the lighter or darker foil paper for contrast. The adhesive foil makes it a clean and simple task to stick everything together:))
  • I also cut the leaves from Adhesive Foil Paper – Apple Green  and Mint .
  • Layer the greenery around the blooms. Remember, the adhesive Foil Paper makes this SUPER easy!IMG_1170
  • I ended up stamping a repeat of a smaller sentiment in the same ink as the polka-dots after quickly masking off the area..
  •  I Embossed the main sentiment from Graceful Rose in Liquid Platinum on vellum.

I encourage you to give this In-Laid die cut technique a try! It is well worth the effort.
