Meant To Be Cling Bundle - Pretty in Night of Navy and the Inlay Die Cutting Technique

Now here is a colour I don't tend to reach for very often and certainly not when thinking in terms of cards for my female friends and family.

But I used Night of Navy for this really sweet little card which I think is dead cute.

I used the Neutrals pack of 6 x 6 Designer Series Papers, and that pretty polka dot print is a really lovely background choice which I think works so well with the crisp and delicate die-cut hearts.

I went for the Inlay Die-Cutting Technique for today's card, meaning that I retained all the pieces that you might normally pop out to leave negative space.  It was quite easy and not too fussy.  I simply left my die-cut card within the die and applied glue to the reverse.  The dies were placed on the paper layer and I pressed down with my fingers and a stylus and paper piercing tool for the small pieces.  They all transferred to my paper base, but for a few stragglers which I picked up with a paper piercing tool and popped back into place within the few negative spaces that were left.

I have said it before, the Meant To Be Cling Bundle is so very versatile.   Perfect for Weddings, Wedding Invitations, Engagement Cards and Birthdays too.

I have no idea whether the stamps or the dies will carry over from the Spring/Summer catalogue and into the new Annual Catalogue, but it would be a shame to miss out.  There is such a vast array of heart dies in the coordinating Be Mine Framelits, which can also be purchased as a single stand-alone item too, at a cost of £33 for 16 dies, the largest of which measures 3-12 x 3-3/4 inches.  Click the illustrations in the Product List below for more details.  I have listed the items separately and also as a Bundle which gives you a saving of 10% if you order the stamp set and framelits together as a Bundle.

Thanks for looking.  I hope you like today's project.

Have a lovely day and happy crafting !

  1. Beautiful card Linda. I tend to forget that the cut outs look just as beautiful left in as pulled out. It gives a different look and I really like it.
