Freshly Made Sketches Card Challenge

I have had a couple of weeks off from card challenges as I have been preparing for my first card class.  I had a quick look this morning at Freshly Made Sketches and had an idea pop into my head!

I have been obsessed lately ,with die cutting then inserting the same die cut in a different colour.  Of course there will be a name for this technique but it has slipped my mind.

My card from the above sketch

I was brave and used black card stock which is a bit of a leap for me.  I've used a few different Stampin Up sets for this card, I will list below.  After the initial die cutting of flower and bee I stuck the original flower back into the card and stamped the leaves with Versamark ink so I could gold emboss, I stamped the sentiment at the same time.   Then I stuck a scrap piece of black behind the die cut holes then glued the gold and Soft Saffron die cuts into the card.  I've backed the layer with black fun foam and then stuck to a black card base.  Inside I've used Soft Saffron card stock to write on.
