Silent Night

I finished off the last of my Christmas cards this week, batch making some designs I've already blogged, so nothing new to blog.  I thought I'd share a card I made a week or two ago with a fabulous Sue Wilson die I won recently over in the Playground.
I CASE'd Di's card HERE.  When Di sent me the die, she suggested I had a go at inlaying it.  'A piece of cake' I thought to myself - however there were SO many tiny pieces!  My first failed attempted was to stick them in with glue.  This is my second attempt.  I backed the aperture made with the die with double-sided tape, as I had no double-sided adhesive sheets,  and replaced all the pieces.  I used silver mirror card in the star.  I'll be off to share my card in the Playground.

Looks great, and so effective

A beautiful card, so serene - which I'm sure is NOT how you felt when you were inlaying all those tiny bits, but the result is well worth it.
Thanks again for the tag on Facebook, I'm still jumping up and down with excitement!

I don't think I'll be batch making with the inlaying technique. LOL! The die will be perfect for batch making by just sticking on the die cut. x

So pleased I spotted that you'd won the prize, Jane. I did a little Happy Dance for you! 😀 Remember to take a picture of your prize. xx

The inlay technique looks great but can be a trifle fiddly, but the end result is beautiful and love the colour and the silver mirri infilled star x

Oooh well done on your CASE Liz, just love this die, it's gorgeous in navy and white isn't it... not sure it would be a batch baking card with all those weeny pieces. You'd have to be in the mood.
Thanks for sharing,

Well done Liz! I adore this die inlaid, not that I would ever have the time and patience. But, you've done it so well done!

I have an even trickier die coming up as a prize over Christmas Fortnight in the Playground :)

I know what you mean about the inlaying, I have done that and suffered too.
This looks really great, love the white against the navy blue.

That is a fabulous die Liz, and your card is lovely, you did a great job with the inlaying. It can be very fiddly.

Liz said...

That was quick! There was only one person who could receive this card. I think it will be the only time I will have the patience to inlay this particular die cut!
