Inlaid Die-Cutting with a Dala Horse

Hey everyone!

Mayuri here to share a card that teams the Dala Horse dies with a bit of inlaid die-cutting!

I created a card and matching tag using minimal supplies - a few scraps of coloured paper, the two Dala Horse dies and a couple of stamp sets for the sentiments (though these could come from anywhere).

I've been using this technique on a few cards recently, and really like the result. I basically die-cut concentric squares out of various coloured paper using some square nesting dies. This gave me lots of coloured square frames, which were then inlaid back into one another onto a piece of scrap white paper, starting with the smallest and working my way out to the largest.

Once I was happy, I took the Dala Horse dies and die-cut the large and small horses out of my concentric square piece. I foam mounted the large one to a card base, and the small one to a tag.

On the card front, I stamped a sentiment from Dala Horse and on the tag, one from Scandinavian Flowers, with black dye ink. To finish, I added a wood veneer star on both horses and pulled some red twine through the tag ;-)

Thanks for looking!
