Inset Die-Cut Shapes

I played with another technique I've seen around the Blogosphere: Inset die-cut shapes. I first saw it employed here, then tonight I read this post about it, so what choice did I have but to try it and get it out of my system? I just made this:

Well I started out with the technique, but then I reverted to my old ways. I cut the numbers out of a piece of white card stock, then cut them again from a scrap of River Rock DSP. Yes, I know the 9 is crooked. Sigh. Then I replaced the white numbers with the striped ones. They nestle so nicely! :)

The letters in "again" were cut out of another piece of River Rock DSP and just stuck to the white - not inset. Same with the black flourishy thing above. There's something about black and white and River Rock that I've always loved. I'm so happy this color came back to stay!

I might play with this inset idea some more this weekend. Definite possibilities!

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper: River Rock, Whisper White and Basic Black card stock, River Rock DSP
Other: PTI number dies, MFT letter dies, MFT flourish die, SU satin ribbon


  1. The inset idea is pretty cool. I like the color combination and if you didn't make something crooked now and again you'd have to change the name of your blog, wouldn't you? Crooked is the new straight.

  2. Great combo of colors, I agree. I have to remember to look to you for trending techniques... This is a cool one. *smile*

  3. Doesn't look crooked to me. It's fabulous (and SO fun!)


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
