Little Red Wagon Challenge #344 ~ Fit It In

Good morning.  It is the start of a new month, the 6th of the year.  My how time flies.  Before we know it, it will be the end of another year already.  But, despite that, it is Wednesday and time for a new challenge at  Little Red Wagon.  Today my friend Kate is the hostess for her first challenge and her theme is "FIT IT IN" ~ use an inlaid die cut on your project.  Now I have a confession.  I had no idea what that meant so off to find out on Pinterest and YouTube.  I found many examples and some video tutorials and this is the result of my first attempt at an inlaid die cut.  I am not really sure how to explain it except you fit the die into the negative space like I did with the word thanks, the curly ques and the butterfly including all the tiny cut out pieces.  It is fun but time consuming and fiddly for sure.  Not totally happy with the liquid glue showing but  do like how the pieces fit together with the look of layers on a flat card.

Card stock is Recollections, patterned paper Simple Stories Carpe Diem, die cuts are Lawn Fawn and Memory Box and embellishments are from my stash.  No stamping or colouring on this card.

Thanks for coming by today.  It is nice to have you visit.  Please leave me a comment if you would like so that I know you were here.  And then, head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the inspiration from all of the talented girlfriends and try your hand at an inlaid die cut.  Can't wait to see what you create.

Have a wonderful day my friends.
