Lil' Inker Designs Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 (the final day) for the Lil' Inker December Release!  If you are following the blog hop you should have come from Amy's blog!  To start at the beginning, visit Laura's blog.

I have two cards to share with you today.
 

First up today, is a little cream card.  I used the 4x4 Stitched Mats Squares die.  These dies are wonderful!! You get a set of 7 nesting square dies!  If you enjoy making square cards, these dies are PERFECT!! If you like to layer using squares, these are perfect for that too!  Lots of fun uses!  The sentiment is from the new Winter Greetings stamp set. I stamped it onto the LID Double Ended Banner die.


I cut one of the snowflake images out of the square and then popped up the smaller of the snowflake images on top of the die cut.  I also die cut two more of the same snowflakes with the same vintage cream cardstock and glued them onto the cardstock.  I love the way the snowflake images look like that!


This second card is an exact replica of the card above, just in a totally different color scheme.


I used the other set of snowflakes shaped dies for this card and layered them onto the square met.  I just a glittery rhinestone in the center of the snowflake for extra pop.

These snowflake dies are so amazing! The stitched detail is AWESOME!! You'll LOVE it!!

Thanks for joining me today!  To continue on in the hop, visit Karen's blog!  Be sure to leave comments along the way because there are two $10 gift certificates up for grabs to one secret commenter along the way!
