Camp Create Day 1: Inlaid Made Easy

We kicked the summer off with week one of Camp Create and now, as summer winds down, we’ve got one more week packed full of new skills, techniques, and inspiration. Our counselors are back with five more crafts to dig into so toss your pack on your bunk and let’s get to it!

As with session one, the goal is to participate in our craft sessions each day and earn your Camp Create badges. As a participant in Camp Create, you immediately earn the badge pictured below. Copy and paste this image and share it on your blog, Facebook page, or Instagram feed to let everyone back home know how you spent your summer vacation.

Die cuts add depth and dimension to your looks but sometimes, the bulk the process creates is undesirable – especially if your card is intended to be mailed. There is a way to work around that conundrum though. Inlaid die cutting allows you to replicate the layered look in a single layer.

Today’s Craft – Inlaid Made Easy

Counselor Barbara is with us today sharing this versatile, bulk-minimizing technique. Her beach scene is making us think our next camp should take place in a tropical location!
