Die Cut Inlay Techniques! 3 Ways with Trinity Stamps' Sweetheart Panel Die

Today's video shares various die cut inlay techniques to create three different cards using the Trinity Stamps Sweetheart panel die!
Of course you could use any panel die you have but I love this slimline die because it cuts out a ton of hearts and creates stitched lines around. the heart die cuts.
Whether you inlay the hearts into a doubled up background or pop up hearts from a blended background on foam tape...
or just inlay the hearts like puzzle pieces into the openings, these cards are quick and easy to make.

I love using Distress Oxide inks with my die cut inlay pieces, but you could use any panel die and inks you have! Here is the video if you want to see how I put together my three cards.
