entire-release-prize-badgeWelcome back to the last day of the Lil’ Inker Designs new release blog hop! I have just a couple more things to share with you today, so let’s get the technical stuff out of the way:


lid_be-mine-greeting-dieCards don’t get much more simple than this first one.

The new Be Mine Greeting die cuts a negative shape, so I put it right in the middle of my 4.25″ card base and backed it with a gorgeous piece of red velvet paper. That’s it. No fancy embellishments or techniques, just an amazing die and gorgeous paper.

Have I mentioned how much I love Laura for making the greeting dies? They’re a gift for clean and simple card makers, perfect for when you’re under a time crunch, or can’t bear to cut into your favorite papers.


Next up in this series of small, square cards is this sweet greeting. Similar to the Be Mine card, I used the negative of the Fringed Scalloped Heart dies to cut an opening into my card base. I used the pointy end of my bone folder to push up the scalloped fringe for extra dimension. Then I backed it with a sweet  patterned paper, and a two-tone greeting cut with the Love You Much Border die.

Finally, I had to make an even sweeter card with some of the same supplies. I covered my square card base with donut patterned paper, then mounted a Fringe Scalloped Heart die cut. I added a die cut donut with hand-doodled sprinkles and sentiment from Eat More Donuts, an old favorite. Then I topped it all with the gorgeous new Brush Script Valentine’s Day Word dies in a shimmering brown card stock.
