The Berry Burst colour is from Stampin’ Ups!® Bright colour family is our focus and I have gone with the die inset cardmaking technique.

This gorgeous technique is when you die cut images from the background paper, mount the die cut with dimensionals and then adhere back into the inset. The effect is delightful!

How gorgeous are the scattered flowers over the background?

  1. You’re right, Amie – the die-inset technique IS delightful, especially on your gorgeous card! I love the hand-drawn stripes, your colour choices, and the cute hearts. Beautiful work.

  2. Such a lovely card Amie and the choice of the grays and lighter pinks is perfect with Berry Burst. The die inset technique really is effective isn’t it and one I must give a go.

  3. Amie, this is a great technique with the inset hearts. I love the Stampin’ Blends stripes and the colour choice, they are so beautifully executed. The little white flowers are a wonderful addition!
