MIM #138 Inlaid Die Cuts


This week's MIM has us inlaying die cuts.
I have seen many others doing this seamlessly well, and I'm so glad 
Betsy Veldman's tutorial showed me how. 


The hardest part is deciding which fabulous die to use!
I wanted to stamp onto a die cut like Betsy did, so I chose 'Snow', and cut it 3 times into 
my white card stock.
She used the ampersand, a set I'm in love with! Used 2 of the sizes. 
Inks: PTI Aqua Mist, Blueberry Sky & (ampersand!) Winter Wisteria.
PTI cardstocks, all matching the inks
Snowflakes from PTI's Snowflake Medley & Winter Cheer.
White embossing powder
Frosted the card a bit with Prisma glitter and done!
Betsy, thank you!

  2. I am so impressed with people who get cards posted the same day a challenge goes up. It takes me at least a day to think of what I even want to do. I am also impressed with how well you inlaid those die cuts. Perfection. Your treatment of the ampersands, with one raised and one inlaid, adds interest to the design of the card. I always enjoy seeing what you create.
