    Oh.My.WORD!! Literally! Word! When I saw what you did with the pink butterfly, my heart flip flopped inside! Scared the living daylights out of me LOL – seriously! You totally rock inlaid die cutting. Me? I haven’t even tried it yet, so this is waaaaay advanced for me. I could do a solid butterfly though ♥ Thank you for teaching this technique!!!

    This took some time and I had to be careful with all the small pieces but I’m really glad I tried it. I’m going to try more for birthdays like the cute card in the video. I hadn’t thought about layering other dies with it too.
