Partial + Inlay Die-cutting

Hello, hello! The sun is out so my bunnies are here to play again!

This time, I focused on die-cutting techniques using my Sizzix Big Shot machine. You have seen me using the adorable Bunny dies in my previous post, and today I will also be using the Landscape Trio dies to create a winter snow scene.

[Supplies are linked at the bottom of the post.]


Since there were going to be many things going on in this card, I decided to have the snow hills and bunnies on the same layer through partial die-cutting. I first die-cut the bunnies out of a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, being careful to leave out some spaces at the bottom of each of them. I then positioned the hill border dies where I wanted to ground the bunnies, and ran them through the machine. The left-facing bunny decided he was going to be different from his two other friends and would not sit right on the hill. So, I cut him off and would later go back and adhere him separately onto the hill.


I got three pieces of card stock in different shades of blue ready in sizes slightly smaller than my card base. I then eyeballed where the clouds would be and ran them through the Big Shot. Using the positives of the two lightest blue and the negative of the darkest blue, I pieced them together to create a night sky.

For a little added dimension, I popped up the snow hills and bunnies with double-sided foam tapes. The bunnies’ eyes were adorned with black rhinestones. To add some sparkle to the card, I decorated the sky with snowflake sequins and clear rhinestones. I find that embellishments in odd numbers tend to be more pleasing to the eye so I stopped at five. Finally, I used a sentiment from the Happy Everything set to finish off the card.

Thank you for stopping by and see you soon!

Hugs, Michelle
