Lil' Inker Designs March Release: Day 2

Welcome back to the Lil' Inker Designs March release!!!  Did you enjoy the blog hop yesterday?  So many projects to look at!!  You should have arrived from the talented Alyssa's blog.......but if not, you can start back at the beginning at the Lil' Inker Designs blog.


Today I'm sharing a card using some LONG AWAITED alphabet dies called Mixed and Stitched Alphabet.  I can not tell you how excited I am about these!  Another new die this month is a set of Stitched Butterflies.  These butterflies have the SIGNATURE dual stitching from Lil' Inker Designs!!

This card is a little out of the norm for me.......NO STAMPING!!!!  :)  I started my card with a piece of pattern paper that was die cut with the Stitched Mats: Rectangles to add some detail to the edge of my card.  After diecutting 2 butterflies (1 white and 1 pattern), I stitched them together with my sewing machine and added a small white clothespin.  Once I decided where I would place my butterfly embellishment, I used the "swirl" die (from the Stitched Butterflies) to show movement of my butterfly on my main panel.  Love this little detail die!

Here's a closeup of my butterfly embellishment........It was adhered with foam adhesive on either side of the center stitching.  This allows dimension and to allow room for the clothespin "antanae".

Now, let's talk about this sentiment.........take a look at the whole alphabet below.  Laura has included some letters in both upper and lower!  I love this because it offers so much versatility when using it and it's so trendy!  For the sentiment on my card, I combined upper and lower alphas for fun!
