You're the Star

There have been so many great tutorials out there using the inlaid diecutting technique.  Here I’ve used products from Lil’ Inker Designs to create my own look!

Start by die-cutting the Stitches and Stripes Cover Up Die with black cardstock.  Remove the diagonal pieces and adhere to white card base on opposite corners.  Using the Stitched Stars Die, die cut your stars with colored cardstock.  Then using the same size star dies, start die cutting them into the khaki cardstock and inlaying the colors in as you go in between die-cutting.  Die cut Anytime Tag, trim down, and stamp sentiment using StazOn onto vellum.  Machine stitch sentiment vellum panel to inlaid star panel.  Adhere to card base with foam adhesive and embellish with black and hot pink gemstones.
