LDRS Creative ~ Inlaid Sunburst Rainbow Card

Hi Friends,
DT Melanie here with you today to share a fun inlaid card using our NEW Sunburst Rectangle Die Set.

This was so much fun to create. Here is how I did it!

Step 1: Cut a piece of light blue card stock (4"x5.25") using the starburst die. Your base card will also need to be cut from a dark purple card stock (4.25x11") 

Step 2: Add double sided foam tape to the entire back of the light blue card stock. I did this for two reasons... 1.) I wanted the small pieces to attach without using glue. and 2.) I wanted to add a little extra thickness to the card since it was going to be quite flat.

Step 3. Start with the red card stock and simply die cut it using the same star burst die and take the largest "circles" and lay them into the holes of the die and simply press to adhere them. Do this with each color of paper, completing one color at a time before die cutting the next one.

Step 4: When cutting each starburst you will accumulate the circles from the center of the die. Glue these all together and glue to center of the card. This will give a little more stability when gluing the sentiment pieces onto the card.

Step 5: Using the Scalloped Rectangle Die Set, cut the tag die from both purple and white card stocks. 

Step 6: Stamp your sentiment using Hybrid Ink in Dark Washed Jeans. I have used a sentiment from the "Wishing You" sentiment stamp set.

Step 7: Glue sentiment over the center opening. 

Step 8: Die cut the small hearts from a red card stock and adhere.





I hope this little inlaid card has brightened your day. I hope you have the
"Best Day Ever" Hugs, Melanie
