Mojo Monday - Inlay Die Cutting Rose Card

Hi there stampers!  For today's card I am playing along over on the Mojo Monday Card Sketch Challenge.  This week's card features a square layout and since I don't make many cards of varying sizes, I decided to give this one a try.  I wanted to also incorporate some inlay die cutting using the smaller rose die from the Rose Garden Thinlit that are in the 2016 SU Occasions Catalog.  I have not used this thinlit set as much as I imaged I would when I first saw it so I am focusing some card making efforts in using this die set.

I took a piece of tip top taupe cut to 2.5 x 3.5 and cut out the rose using the smaller of the rose thinlits.  I kept all the pieces as I knew I would be inlaying them back into the tip top taupe piece.  I then cut another rose out of mint macaron and only saved the rose flower die cut.  I glued a piece of acetate to the back of the tip top taupe cardstock that was cut slightly smaller to give me a place to adhere all the die cut pieces to.  I pieced together the mint macaron into place then added in all the rose bits that I saved from the tip top taupe to give me this inlay die cutting look.  I love this technique!

After inlaying all the pieces, the rest of the card came together quickly.  I used a piece of DSP from the In Color DSP Paper Stack and adhered this to a 4.25 x 4 inch cardstock base made from thick whisper white.  The inlay technique piece was layered on top of this with foam adhesive.  I heat embossed in gold onto a piece of vellum the sentiment from the Sale-a-bration set called What I Love.
