Altenew | A Floral Die-Cut Inlay With Realistic Wood Background

Hi friends!

I’m sharing today a floral card idea with natural vibes, showcasing a realistic wood background complemented by a die-cut inlay technique.

This card is inspired by those custom wood and resin tables that seem to be popular now (at least I see their crafting process quite often in my social media feeds).

CREATING A REALISTIC WOOD BACKGROUND

Usually, I start making my card by creating a focal element and a background afterward.

This time, however, I was eager to try the recently released Essential Textures: Wood Press Plate to create a realistic wood background.

I love realistic designs in general, but wooden ones hold a special place in my heart. I never tire of incorporating them into my cards.

First, I pressed the wood background design into a Parchment Cardstock panel using the Essential Textures: Wood Press Plate and Mocha Fresh Dye Ink.

Next, I blended the same Mocha Fresh Dye Ink onto the background using the Large Blending Brush to add more “wooden” color to the Parchment panel.

For a more finished look around the edges, I blended the Espresso Fresh Dye Ink using a Mini Blending Brush.

The smaller the brush the more intense ink blending you can achieve. I used the Large Blending Brush to add a softer ink blending and the smaller Mini Blending Brush for a darker outcome.

FLORAL DIE-CUT INLAY

Using the Sweet Jasmine Complete Bundle, I created the floral element for my card.

First, I created the outline using the Desert Night Fresh Dye Ink and Sweet Jasmine Press Plates. After that, I colored it using the Sweet Jasmine Simple Coloring Stencil and Cool Summer Fresh Dye Ink Bundle.

Next, I die-cut the floral using the Sweet Jasmine Die Set.

Using the same die, I die-cut two pieces out of the realistic wood background I created earlier.

While positioning the die, I ensured that a single floral element cut in half would sufficiently fill the die-cut spaces.

I adhered the wood background panel onto a panel of a slightly smaller size and then adhered the floral element halves into the corresponding negative spaces.

After that, I foam-mounted the wood background with floral inlays onto a white card base using the Instant Dimension Foam Tape.

I created the sentiment using a press plate from the Sweet Jasmine Press Plates, Dusk Fresh Dye Ink, and Sweet Jasmine Die Set. The sentiment popped up on the card.

To accentuate it, I added several light blue and white enamel dots from the Lapis Lazuli and Essential Black & White Sets.

And that’s it for today’s project – a floral die-cut inlay with a realistic wood background. Hope your nature-loving recipients enjoy this card, too!

It’s the season of love, so let’s spread the warm fuzzy feels! Tell us your thoughts about your most memorable place down the comments.

Thanks for hanging out, and have a lovely day!
