MIM

Make It Monday #138 ~ Inlaid Die-cuts

Betsy Veldman hosts this week's MIM. You can see her beautiful card created on video HERE.

This technique is great for word dies, but I had it in my head to use Butterflies so, here is the card I made.

PTI Products used ~
Cardstock:  Stamper's Select White
Dies:  Beautiful Butterflies

The butterflies are cut out of felt to add texture.  I stamped the Grape Hyacinths on the white panel before placing the dies and cutting them out to give some dimension to them.  The Baker's twine is wrapped around the front panels three times then tied off to the side. I like the way this came out and plan to make a few more with different color combos.
