Inlaid Die cuts

Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge this month is to use Inlaid Dies

Here I used a newish acquisition from Simon Says Stamp and used the multiple heart die to cut three pieces of card.
Having removed the shape from the black piece I put some double sided tape over the back of the aperture and then stuck in the white outline piece and then the individual red hearts. Fortunately they are all exactly the same and so don't have to fit into a specific space.
The 'love' word from Simon Says Stamp was triple layered and popped onto trimmed down dimensional pads. The 'you' from Craft Essentials Creative dies was also triple layered.
The finished piece of black card was adhered to the card front to cover it completely.

Winner receives one stamp set from HLS

Here's another, again inlaid into black, but this time I used a butterfly die which I really love from Concord and 9th. Cut three times once more I embossed the outline piece in glittery Gold Embossing Glitter from WOW. The infill pieces are cut  from a piece of card which I had squished some flowers between, it's a subtle beige colour but I gave it a spritz of Diamond Pearl spray from Crafters Companion.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle, embossed in the same gold glitter.
