Lil' Inker Designs December Release: Day 1


Welcome to Day 1 of the Lil' Inker Designs December Release!  This release is HUGE and FULL of amazing dies and stamps that will be perfect for those any occasion cards or some Valentines.......are you ready?  You should have arrived from the  Lil' Inker Designs blog.   But guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!


I am so excited to share today's card with you!  The new Cover Up Die: Faceted is just amazing.  I've created a lot of backgrounds using it.  Today I'm using it as a shaker card using the "hidden" heart in the pattern as my shaker "window".  

I started by doing a watercolor wash with Distress Inks to a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper and allowed to dry completely, then diecut with the Cover Up: Faceted removing just the "heart" pieces.  To the back of this piece (all my remaining pieces stayed in the diecut), I put tons of adhesive and applied a clear piece of cardstock.

I used DOUBLE thickness of foam adhesive because I really wanted to make my sequins "shake" so this card will probably have to be hand delivered!  haha  The sentiment is from a new set called All About Ampersand.  Here's a bit of a close-up of the detail.
