Inlaid Die Cutting

Posted by on March 11, 2014 in Distress inks, Online card class, Paper Smooches, Water colour | 17 comments

I decided I needed some ‘me’ time as my hubby is currently overseas for 3.5 weeks, and therefore I enrolled in the latest online card class – Clean and Simple Card making 3. CS3_paticipant

Inlaid die cutting was a technique shown on Day 1 – I love this technique (I even did a tutorial on it last year here). For this card I used a Paper Smooches die – Quote tags (I just love the font on this die – it comes with a ‘Thanks’ also) and paired it up with the Memory Box Prim Poppy die to create a completely flat card. I love how it all fits back together like a jigsaw puzzle.
