If you love the balloon and party hat dies from LID, you'll love this new die set as well! It is a mini version of the original die sets!
I told you yesterday I'm in a Valentine making mood, so for this cute die set, I created a banner with the Mini Party hat dies and also used hearts from the Of the Heart die set. I added the mini squiggly party hat border as a topper to the banners. For the banner string, I used the balloon string from the new Balloon Builder stamp set and it worked like a charm.
The mat is die cut with the Stitched Mats: Rectangle dies. I can't quit using those! They are so perfect for the matting on card fronts! You can see the tiny little squiggly pieces a little more closely here. To adhere them to the banner pieces I used a glue pen.
I pulled out a few more LID goodies for the bottom portion of the card as well. I used the Stitched Sentiments Flag Die, the Sentiment Flag Additions Dies (the wavy flag die) and the double ended banner die from Flags & Tags Die Set. I also used the heart again from the Of the Heart set and the sentiments come from the coordinating stamp set Of the Heart (PS...the Of the Heart Stamp Set & Die combo is ON SALE!!). The paper is a wonderful line by Pink Paislee called Secret Crush and the beautiful twine is The Twinery's Platinum Shimmer.
Below is a image of what this mini set contains. Lots of tiny cuteness! And, this set also includes a small balloon string die as well! Bonus!! :) And, do you see that long, skinny balloon! I love it!
There are a couple of the dies that are the same size as the dies in the original balloon die set, but I found that to be SOOOO handy because I could cut multiple balloons at the same time and didn't have to run them through my die cut machine one at a time. You all know how slow that can go! I'll show you some samples using those tomorrow.
