CASology - WASHI + In-laid die cutting TUTORIAL

Hi all,
I have a very simple CAS card to share with you also a new technique to those who have not tried it yet.

Let's check out the card first.
In-laid Die Cut CAS Card

This card is Inspired from Sid's version here. I have taken the concept of using washi tapes for die cut pieces and used it in my card.

Now What is In-laid die cutting?
It is basically die cutting your CS, then coloring or texturing it or embellish the die cut and then simply put it back in place from where it was cut out.

This creates a CUT yet NOT CUT effect. The die cut is in laid in the card itself :)

Here is how I went about creating this card.

First I lined up some washis in strips of alternating colors

I have used nesting scallop circles of two coordinating sixes and cut out from both CS and washi paper.

Then I just assembled it with the Washi outline circle. I have used the remaining negatives in the inside of the card.
