Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. I have a couple of cards today with a great technique for using your alcohol ink backgrounds up. I don't know about you, but I love to play around with my alcohol inks but I don't always have a project in mind when creating. Therefore, I collect a pile of backgrounds just waiting to be used and they are perfect for die cut inlay technique. Whatsmore, the Fine Bouquet from Altenew is stunning die that is perfect for it!

Written and photos for Alcohol Ink Die Cut Inlay :

 To start, apply a selection of alcohol inks onto white Yupo cardstock in a variety of colours of your choosing. You may wish to add blending solution and a straw to help move the colours around. When you are happy with the overall look of the background, set this to one side to dry. 
Whilst the background is drying, die cut the Altenew Fine Bouquet die from Soft Stone and Slate cardstock from Gina K designs 4 times. Layer up the two colour matching layers on top of each other to create a slightly dimensional die cut. 
Next, create two 5.5" x 4.25" card bases, one from Soft stone cardstock and the other from Neenah Classic Crest Solar white 110lb cardstock.  In addition, create two card panels measuring at 5.25" x 4 in the same two cardstocks.
When the alcohol panel has dry, die cut the Fine Bouquet from the inked panel. You need to keep the die cut pieces; to do this you may find it easiest to die cut with the die facing up in your die cutting machine. Before you remove the die cut pieces off your die cutting machine, cover the back of the inked panel with washi tape to keep hold of all the die cut pieces.
Take one the Slate cardstock layered die cut and adhere this onto the Soft Stone card panel using Gina K connect glue. Repeat this process with the Soft Stone layered die cut and adhere down onto the Neenah card panel. 
Using a pick-up tool, inlay the die cut pieces from the alcohol ink background die cuts into the layered die cuts on the card panels. Add a small amount of glue into each section of the die cut before adding the alcohol ink piece in. Repeat this process for both cards. 
For the sentiments, heat embossing in white embossing powder two sentiments from the Altenew 'Smiles & Hugs' stamp set onto black card and trim these down. Using Scrapbook adhesive squares, foam mount them onto the front of the cards.
Apply fun foam to the back of the card panels and adhere these onto the card bases for dimension. Lastly, add a few colour corresponding sequins to embellish the card.
