WCMD: Paper Pieced Inlays

Christmas Inlay Card

Prepare yourself for some shocking news! Christmas is only 83 days away! Make a card everyday from now until December 15 and you should have a stack ready to send out. It’s a good plan anyways, even if I will find myself frantically making cards on December 16.

The technique I’d like to share with you today is pieced inlays. Create a shape with a word cut from the center. Cut the design from two different papers and then switch out the pieces and fit them back together like a puzzle. In the example above I cut the base piece with the scallop label and the joy sentiment from three different papers: woodgrain, red, and green. I then switched out the pieces and created three different cards. By using dimensional dots you can add dimension for a cool effect. The photo does not do this technique justice, but try it for yourself and you will love the results.
