I decided it was time to learn some new card making techniques so I enrolled in the online card class , Clean and Simple Card Making. The first lesson taught is how to make Faux Effects. For this card, I practiced the technique of inlaid die-cuts. This technique involves inlaying die cuts back into the cardstock they were originally cut from. The result is a smooth, one layered card. This was my first attempt using this technique and although it's a little tricky, I like the end results.
I used Memory Box dies and cardstock along with some Echo Park Dots and Stripes paper. One thing I noticed is that a little thicker cardstock would have worked a little bit better, but being my first try at this technique I was happy with the results.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
