Twisted Inlaid Die Cutting Catherine Pooler Twisted Inlaid Die Cutting – Day 1 SN California Vacation

It’s Day ONE!  It’s Day ONE!

Our California Vacation kicks off today with a challenge for you to use GOLD on your card!  Over at StampNation, we have more info on how to use that inspiration, dream team samples and another video from me.

I was so inspired, I just had to do a bonus video for my blog as well…so here we go!  The “Twisted Inlaid Die Cut Technique”!

I came up with this technique (I haven’t seen it before – have you?) when I was making a shaker card for a newsletter project that will come out soon.  (Not subscribed to my newsletter yet?  Check it out here – tons of exclusive tutorials there!)

I was trying to decide whether I should lay the die cut piece back into the background, or make a shaker card.  Can you guess which way I went?

    I enjoyed the twisted inlay card very much.
    I don’t know why or how; but I miss a lot of your videos. Do you have to be in SN to receive them now?
