Dawn has a super-cool challenge for us today as she joins the TLC team ~ Inlay Die-Cuts. I've wanted to try it ever since I saw Beate's colorblocking with cardstock tutorial.
So I didn't actually cut my diecut from my pieced cardstock as in Dawn's fabulous sample ( and I therefore didn't get two for the price of one either). Instead I used a test I'd cut of a new die I got last week, and inlaid that into a pieced background after running it through the BS with the die. But sheesh - remind me to use a solid die next time I try this. It was hard not to lose all the little bits in between the reindeer. I used an adhesive sheet behind the die-cut aperture to help me stick everything back in place.
A2 base. I used Sizzix Little Sizzles (Classics, I think) for my background, diecutting the bottom strip to make a scene. It's all matted on black.
I'll definitely be trying this again - thanks for giving me the push to move it from my "must try sometime" list, Dawn.
