HLS CAS May Challenge Starts Today!

Today we have another fun challenge starting at Happy Little Stampers CAS:  inlaid die-cutting.  I have a nephew's birthday this month so thought it would be cute to inlay a 4 into a balloon.  Well, next thing you know, I'm inlaying the balloons too and making them float off of the main panel.  Cool!  I used glitter on the 4 by burnishing a diecut of Scor-Tape.  I added Scor-tape around the edges of the card too for some added sparkle and shine.  This card may be difficult to mail away I love the sparkle so much--LOL!

A couple more examples of inlaid die-cutting I posted last Autumn are below.

I hope you've had your creativity sparked and you'll join us over at HLS.  It's always wonderful to see what you create for each of our challenges!
