As this die cuts, it creates these amazing inlay indentations in your card, that opens the door to some lovely techniques which I am going to share with you!

You can find the Shopping List with all of the products I have used at the bottom of the page.


Brush an ink pad over the top of the flower to highlight the inlay; experiment with various inks and card stock to create amazing effects.

  • Top Tip - Use a brayer if you find the ink pad you’ve chosen is soft. It will also help colour the grooves as well.
