w&w Belated 2nd Birthday Bash | Inlaid Die Cutting Challenge with Mayuri


Hey everyone, Mayuri here!
Thanks for stopping by on what I can only describe as the beginning of a very exciting month of celebrations for Winnie & Walter's second birthday! Woohoo! And, it all kicks off with a different birthday challenge set by each member of the DT.
The theme for my challenge is Inlaid Die-Cutting, and I've 'stretched' the use of one of my favourite Winnie and Walter dies to create this card:
I began by creating a colourful background by misting a couple of Dylusions Ink sprays, blending from an orange to a bright pink and setting aside to dry. I then used the Big Bang Confetti Cutaways to die-cut a seamless pattern out of white cardstock.
I applied a full sheet of adhesive onto a scrap piece of paper, and then adhered the white, die-cut panel on top, leaving the exposed areas of adhesive for the next step.
I used the same cutaways to die-cut the same shapes out of my coloured panel, being sure to die-cut in the same place as the white cardstock - this meant I could retain the look of the orange blending into the bright pink.
I inlaid all the coordinating pieces back into the white cardstock panel to create an abstract background pattern. I die-cut this piece down to the same size as my card front and adhered it straight down.
I die-cut a banner piece out of some vellum using the banner die from The Big, the Bold and Extras Cutaways and used glue dots to adhered it to the card front. I then heat embossed a sentiment in white from This Awesome House onto a piece of black cardstock, trimmed it down and foam mounted to the vellum.
I do hope you'll play along with the challenge!
Thanks for stopping by ;-)
