Anna Griffin Cuttlebug on Kraft Card using Elizabeth Craft "innies"


Do you know what an "innie" is? Well my dear crafter, it's what's left over when you use an Elizabeth Crafts outline sticker. I always thought about using them but never did until now. There's a trick to using the "innies" to create the reverse of the exact same image. I created the focal for my generic blank card by using the "innies" and a chalkboard sticker.


I started out with kraft cardstock by Recollections and embossed a beautiful Anna Griffin/Cuttlebug design. Then I cut out the backing paper that held the "innies" and applied Cricut transfer tape, burnished it HARD and then transferred the innies as a group over to white Recollections cardstock. After burnishing it again, I pulled off the transfer tape at a diagonal to make sure everything stayed put.

I hand cut along the edge of the design to form the focal for the card and adhered a chalkboard tag sticker from my stash (Mambi maybe?) for the sentiment. I finished off the look by adding faux stitching with a unable signo white pen.

Have your tried this technique? If not, will you give it a try?
