i think i may have done inlaid before but not really sure about that. It was fun to try it with this sweet little giraffe from the MFT jungle kit. I love the papers in this set. I used a scrap to cut the giraffe out and lay him into the space I had die cut for him to rest in. Faux stitching of course! I stenciled the grass through the cut out of the grassy die that comes in the kit and used the little sprouts for some dimension.
