Hopefully, you checked out all of Angel's amazing creations before hopping here. If not of it you get lost along the hop you can always find your spot by going to the Lil' Inker Blog. For now, I'm ready to show off some more fun stuff!
My first card uses the super cool, Be Mine Greeting Die.
My card started with this super fun rainbow striped paper. I thought it would be awesome with the Be Mine Greeting Die cut out and showing a fun pattern behind. However, I felt it needed a little more black and white to make it work how I envisioned. So, I found some black and white striped paper to add with the pattern going in a different direction and cut using Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangles. I layered this on the card front, aligned the Be Mine Greeting Die and cut through both layers of paper ensuring that awesome stitching would be on both and tie it together. Next, I ran the card front through my die cutter using the Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles to add a little stitching to the edges before adding a bit of vellum to the underside of my heart to soften the look of the XO patterned paper peeking through. Here's a closer look:
I started by making a window using the Fringe Scalloped Heart Dies in this cool red paper. I added this to a black card base and then started cutting layers using the Be Mine Greeting Die to add a thin red stitched boarder around the heart I cut using Dual Stitched Heart and Kisses Word Die Set and embossed red using the Filled Heart Stamp Set. I added a black glitter handcut banner between the two heart layers and then added the "kisses" cut in black using Dual Stitched Heart and Kisses Word Die Set to my heart. I finished the card off with some sequins and a puffy heart sticker to add a little more black to the card. Here's a closer look:
