Inlay/Overlay Technique

Hello and welcome, here I will be showing a wonderful technique to utilize  all those lovely scraps we often just throw out, after you have used cutting dies. The original post can be found Here.

Supplies you will need



1. Lay your coloured cardstock onto the Spellbinders – Nestabilities/Fleur De Lis die and cut and emboss it, in your die machine. Embossing I found helps the scraps to sink into the die, keeping them in place (most of the time!)


2. Peel away gently the outer frame and the inner panel (you can use these for other projects). I have found sometimes static can make the small scraps lift. You can place them back into the die, easily with a pair of tweezers.


3. Place a small amount of Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue on the inlay/scraps, you might find it useful to use a pointy tool to hold them in place while you place some adhesive, if any are loose and tend to move.



4. Lay the die on your die machine and place the white cardstock on top of the Fleur De Lis die and emboss this in your die machine. I let mine sit for a few minutes to let the adhesive set. Then I simply lift away the Fleur De Lis die.


Easy Peasy! Here is the result you will get from this technique.


Here are a few samples I thought you may like to see, hope you enjoyed the tutorial, most of all have fun.

Happy Crafting!


Cardstock: 2 pieces of cardstock, cut slightly bigger than the die you are using (1 light piece and 1 darker piece)
