PTI MIM #138: Inlaid Die-Cuts (Take 2) Thinking of You & SSS: Anything Goes

Once again I tried Betsy's technique of Inlaid Die-Cuts as shown in her video here. Funny how one looks at their dies in a different light and feels the need to buy more. Great marketing scheme, don't you think? I die-cut a Limitless Layers: 2-1/4" Oval from PTI's Harvest Gold (HG) cardstock (saved for another card) and a second one from "Snippets" paper pad from American Crafts for my inlay. After embossing the HG with PTI's Linen/Canvas Impression Plate, I backed that with SU's Baroque Burgundy (BB) before adhering to my white card base. Another strip of "Snippets" and BB were added down the left side. To finish it off, I added a Harvest Gold button with white crochet thread bow, stamped my sentiment and rounded the corners.




Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Harvest Gold, White, SU Baroque Burgundy & Snippets paper pad from AC
Ink: SU Baroque Burgundy 
Stamps: Botannical Silhouettes
Dies: Limitless Layers: 2-1/4" Ovals & Linen/Canvas Impression Plate
Other: HG button & white crochet thread
