An Inlaid Hi! FMS127



\


I started my second card class and the very first session demonstrated "faux effects".  This card uses faux layered die cuts.  The two banners and the sentiment are actually inlaid creating a smooth single layer.  It's like cutting out and assembling your own jigsaw puzzle!  



              Jen designed a sweet sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
