CAS Mix Up April Challenge - Inlaid Die Cutting

I almost always do butterflies or flowers so thought I would do something completely different.  I used this PTI Let's Party Die after sponging on Distress Inks.  Then used Stick it Paper so that the pieces didn't pop out.  Jennifer McGuire uses this technique.  I think I did something wrong even though I attached another piece of cardstock on the other side of the stick it, one piece still popped out as they all would have done.  So had to tape the back with Micro pore tape and got it to work.
  Anyway it worked out in the end.  Used a Cuttlebug EF for the background.
Don't have any stamping so this may not qualify.

Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Hi Linda, Love your inlaid technique. I used it on my DT card. I used scotch tape on the entire back that works great, but you do have to insert all the pieces like a puzzle. How about if you add a stamped and pop up sentiment so you meet our requirements ? TFS and joining us at CAS Mix Up.

  8. Great idea to use the stick it paper to hold this together after die cutting - when I want the pieces to stay in they never do and when I want them to come out - they don't! Beautiful colors on this inlaid die panel - so pretty against the white embossed background Linda! Thans for joining us in the CAS Mix Up Challenge! Julia xx
