Petal Card Die Four Ways + Video Tutorial

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  They tend to go so fast don't they!?  

Today I have a few projects to share with you using products from Lil' Inker Designs newest release and I have a video to show you how to put together the projects!  

Here's a sampling of the projects in the video.  I'll show more up close photos below.

In the video I will show you how to make four projects using the Petal Card die from Lil' Inker Designs.  I haven't made many videos, so I feel like I need to say that this isn't perfect, but it's a start.  :)  I'm learning as I go!


Along with the traditional Petal Card (Idea #1), there are 3 other project ideas shown in the video.  Here's some still shots of the projects featured in the video along with the ideas of different ways to use the Petal Card die.

Hey, Foxy Dies

Tip #1:  The Petal Card die is PERFECT for using up your stash of older papers!  That is how these projects started out!  I got into my drawer FULL of papers that I hadn't used and I just started cutting & cutting & cutting!  I wanted to use up papers I like but don't use anymore!  You can make LOTS of  boxes and you'll never even miss the paper because it's in your "older" pile! :)  I bet I cut 40 - 50 petal cards out with this challenge to myself in mind!  The paper featured in this video is paper I've had for several years and is called Sweet Girl from Echo Park by Lori Whitlock.  

Tip #2:  Try to use papers with a pattern on both sides so that you have visual interest on both the outside & inside of your projects!

I'm going to enter the last box in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Monday Challenge!
