Hello friends! With the last several releases from Simon Says Stamp I have especially been drawn to the gorgeous Outline Floral dies. A few weeks ago I created an Easter card with the Outline Floral Cross from the Fresh Bloom Release. Instead of sharing right away, I held onto the card with the intention of using the Outline Floral Frame from the DieCember 2018 Release. Imagine my delight when I saw the Outline Floral Mom die in the Blossoms and Butterflies Release! Today I'm going to share three different cards with the same technique!

Watch the creation of these outline floral inlay cards from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
The Outline Floral Cross was die cut from smooth white cardstock and adhered to the center of the design. The cross was cut out again from multiple colors of cardstock and inlaid into the design. I die cut the cross two more times from smooth white cardstock and adhered them one on top of another on the first cross to really "frame up" the inlay design.
Cardstock colors used for the Outline Floral Cross:
Cross: Hero Hues Paradise
Leaves: Hero Hues Kiwi
A sentiment from the Tiny Words Faith Stamp Set was stamped below the cross with Simon Says Stamp Smoke Ink and the design was finished with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dandelion Yellow and Limoncello.
The Outline Floral Frame was die cut from smooth white cardstock and adhered over the stamped background. The die was cut again from greens, blues, and purple cardstock and the design was inlaid into the frame. The frame was die cut twice more, adhered one on top of another and finished with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Bottle Green in the center of the flowers.
Cardstock colors used for the Outline Floral Frame:
I used the new Mesh Stencil, Simon Says Stamp Olive Green Ink, and a blending brush to created a fun inked background on smooth white cardstock.
The Outline Floral Mom die was die cut from smooth white cardstock and adhered to the center of the stenciled design. The flowers, leaves, and "mom" were inlaid with plums, pinks, and green cardstocks. The frame was die cut twice more from smooth white cardstock and adhered one on top of another to finish the large die cut design.
Letters & Small Circles: Hero Hues Plum
A sentiment from the Tiny Words Encouragement Stamp Set was stamped on Hero Hues Palm Cardstock with clear embossing ink, heat embossed with white embossing powder, trimmed into a thin strip and adhered to the card as shown.
