Inlaid Die cutting explained..

IMG_0687 (Medium)On today’s card I have done a technique called Inlaid Die cutting. First I die cut the anchor ( Kaisercraft die) from the white cardstock, collecting all the little bits that we normally throw away, and die cut it again from blue cardstock. I ran the white cardstock piece through the big shot/cuttlebug using a kaisercraft anchors embossing folder. The last step is to inlay the blue anchor into the white embossed cardstock, and then pop in all those little bits of off cuts – if you look carefully you can see which pieces they are as they don’t have the embossed detail on them. That is the fiddliest part of this technique. To finish the card I wrapped some bakers twine around it and mounted on navy blue card. Too hot here today to do anything but read! Til tomorrow…
