Butterfly Inlay

Making cards with inlays is an easy project, and making this card with a butterfly inlay is a perfect example. It works best when you have a detailed die and an outline die combo, as with this butterfly set.

Embossed card with butterfly inlay
The panel for the card front is partially embossed after the butterfly is die cut

A piece of gold dotted paper is blended with different inks and glued behind the front panel opening. Once that is in place, simply glue the body of the butterfly back into the opening, creating a butterfly inlay. A piece of gold washi tape hides the transition from the embossed part of the panel. Add the embossed panel onto a piece of black card stock and then to a gold card front.
