Four Feathers, In Class #1 - November 2014

Thursday, November 20, 2014


Participants did a little creative die cutting in this month's class.  This technique is called "inlay die cutting".  What you end up with is essentially a smooth surface.

The colours were inspired by a recent wedding project I completed.  I had several off-cut strips of cardstock and compiled these in a striped pattern to create my own patterned paper.  We then cut the oval from this, followed by the tall feather from the middle.  The leftover tall striped feather was set aside to be used in another of the cards featured in the session.

The stamped feathers, from the Four Feathers set, were stamped in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla, then die cut.  The tall stamped feather was inserted in the frame created in the oval before the smaller feather was cut and layered in place - all the pieces slotted in flat like a puzzle.

The sentiment comes from the Something to Say set.  It was also stamped on an off-cut strip and then shaped into a banner.

  1. Very NICE Jenn. I'll have to try this fun technique. The colors look like rows of ribbon. So clever!
