Die Inlay


I’d never heard the term ‘die inlay’ before, so I was intrigued. Basically it’s using both the negative and positives of the die, and not wasting anything!  It’s also a very quick way to make two cards in almost the same time as making one!

This is the technique challenge currently underway on Just Us Girls (JUGS), and it’s a beauty!

It just so happens that I’d bought a new (very sweet!) die at the weekend when I attended a local craft show.  It’s a Penny Black die, and I must admit, that until I saw the die, I had no idea that Penny Black made dies!!!

This one is called “In a Row” and features some very sweet little birds sitting on what looks like an electricity line or a stick.

These were pretty quick and easy cards to make, and since I’m in the midst of making Valentine’s Day cards for the troops, that’s what I made these.

Thanks for looking, and as always, if you want to comment, and the comment box isn’t showing, click the title of this post and it will magically appear!

  1. Thanks Lindsay. I guess you’d have to pick your dies carefully to do this, but there would be heaps that would work.

  2. Cheryl, these are so pretty! I love the little birds on a wire….nicely done! Thanks so much for joining us at Just Us Girls. I hope to see you here again!

  3. Thanks, Karen! Yes, I love it, and was really drawn to it when I spotted it.

    You could use it for just about any celebration too.

  4. Thanks Sharyn. I do pop over from time to time, and join in, but not very often. (Just seem to forget!!)

  5. Thanks Vicki! Yes, red and white are very elegant together. Not sure why I don’t use them more often.

  6. Penny, thanks. I never think to use both the positive and negative, so it was a good kick in the pants with the JUGS challenge!
