Holiday Card Workshop 2013 #3

Day Two of Holiday Card Workshop opened up a who new love for me - inlayed die-cutting using woodgrain veneers!  These or so easy and so much fun! I've had woodgrain veneer in my stash for awhile, but have used it mainly for die cutting images - those same images can be colored and reinserted into the sheet of veneer from which they came. Who knew?!!  The most difficult aspect is hanging onto all the little bits and pieces that come out after die cutting - you have to reinsert them onto the sheet after coloring and replacing the die cut - even down to the tiniest dot of veneer. No matter how hard I tried to contain them, I spent a lot of time searching for those little bits after die cutting. =)
Supplies: Dies from Memory Box, Impression Obsession and Papertrey Ink

Wowzer--these are fabulous! Love the inlaid look, but I've never seen it used with wood veneer colored die cuts. These are really special!
