Glitter Inlay Die Cut Card

glitter inlay birthday card

It's a new year and I'd like to try to have all the birthday cards I need for the year, ready to go (instead of remembering a few days before the actual birthday and scrambling to make that one card!)  Why not go through a process in just a few hours that will make a lot of cards all at once? Here's how I made these glitter inlay die cut cards.

Take a large cover plate die cut and cut into different panels of glitter cardstock and white and black cardstock. I love the POW glitter cardstock! The glitter is so fine and smooth.

Adhere the white or black die cut panel on a card front and inlay the glittered letters like putting together a puzzle.  I like using my Art Glitter glue, as it allows me to get into all the little spots.  This is a super easy technique and I made 8 cards in less than 2 hours!

Alternatively, you can use the pieces of glitter paper you've cut, and inlay with the white and black pieces, so you use up all of your scraps!

  • Wow, great way to make a batch of cards at one time! I’m wondering about the happy die cut. How did you extend the line on either side of the word?

  • The die is from The Stamp Market called “Birthday Cover Die”

  • Love it! Also looking to where I can purchase that particular die set.

  • I love this! Great way to make several cards at one session. I would like to know where you purchased that particular die set, if possible. I’ve looked a bit, but can’t find it.
