If you aren't familiar with inlaid embossing, there's a great video link on the challenge page. Pretty much, it's using those cute little dies, but instead of layering them, you cut them to fit like a puzzle!
I decided to CASE the card on page 77 in the 2015 SU Idea Book and Catalog. Which may have been a bit much for the first attempt, I've been dying to use that set and I thought today was just the day to give it a whirl.
I am in love with this technique because it keeps the bulky layers at bay that you would typically get if they were stacked. Once everything was assembled, I decided to run it through with an embossing folder because I was NOT a fan of the framelet outlines. Now, it's a bit busier so they aren't noticed quite as much.
Here's the challenge:
Here's your Mashup Challenge:
- Create a project with the Sketch.
- Create a project with Inlaid Die Cutting. (Video Here)
- or Mash it Up! and create a project with the Sketch and inlaid die cutting.
The Challenge will close on Wednesday Sept. 23rd @ 6pm EST. Be sure to read the guidelines above under "about the FM" if you are new to our Challenge and Welcome. We can't wait to see what you create with this fun Mash' Up!
All in all, it was fun! I still think I should've done something a tad but simpler. It definitely got me out of my comfort zone. But, go big or go home, right?
