Welcome back to the second day of the Lil' Inker Designs December Release! As usual, we have a fabulous hop for you featuring innovative stamps and dies! You should have arrived from Chrissy Larson's Blog!
I tried my hand at a shaker card, because the new Love You Greeting Die is perfect for this style of card! I die cut a rectangle from the beautiful, new Love You Paper Pack with the Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles and adhered it to a cream, speckled cardstock base. I then die cut the Love You Greeting Die from the cream, speckled paper as well, and topped that onto a piece of acetate die cut from Stitched Mats: Squares and added foam tape for dimension. I then added my "sprinkles" before adhering the focal piece to a piece of red patterned paper from the Love You Paper Pack. I finished the card with a wrap-around bow from May Arts Waxed Cord in Red.
Fun (and awesome!) Time Saving Fact: Did you know that the Lil' Inker Designs' Greeting Dies line (Love You Greeting Die, Boxed Up Birthday Greeting Die, Merry & Bright Greeting Die, Boxed Up Thank You Greeting Die) are made to coordinate with the Stitched Mats: Squares and Stiched Mats: Dual Stitched Squares along with the Dual Dotted Squares so you don't have to worry about trimming anything?
I wanted to showcase how the products from this release, although centered around Valentine's Day, can be used for all year round projects. For the above card, I die cut a stamped, colored giraffe from the Lovie Friends Stamp Set and Lovie Friends Die Set. Then I die cut a heart from the new Dual Dotted: Hearts die set from the new Love You Paper Pack and inlaid that into an yellow inked cardstock panel that had a heart die cut from the Stitched Hearts Die Set. I love how well these products nest into each other, no matter what release they are from! So many possibilities. I stamped a greeting from a previously released stamp set called Send Pretty Greetings, and then affixed this panel to a white cardstock base and flanked it with some polka dotted washi tape. I adhered the giraffe and finished the card with a wrap-around baker's twine bow.
