Cutting Edge Challenge #15

It's time to share the next Cutting Edge Challenge!  This week's inspiration card is one of mine!!!  For my inspiration card, I used the On the Diagonal Die featuring the Dual Stitching detail from Lil' Inker Designs.  

This week's challenge also will be the LAST Cutting Edge Challenge.  It has been so fun to be a part of this!  Thank you so much Jackie! 


Pink. Orange. Green.  A favorite and yes, unusual color combination for a holiday card but I don't always like to create with the traditional colors when it comes to the holidays.  This color combination is just fun so I used it for my card today.

For my challenge card,  I've used the awesome STITCHED MATS: CIRCLES that feature LID's EXCLUSIVE "Dual Stitching Design".  When diecut, the circles not only cut a stitched circle but a stitched circle left on the negative!  That one detail gives so much more "WOW" to a card like this!  
You can find all of Lil' Inker Designs "Dual Stitched Designs" in the store HERE and by looking for this icon:


In the centers of the circles, I've silver heat embossed snowflakes from Cozy Winter Wishes from Lil' Inker Designs and then added them back into the stitched negative panel.  The final touch was adding in my favorite clear sequins in all 3 sizes (4mm. 6mm, 8mm) from Pretty Pink Posh.

Who else would have thought to use this color combo for a Christmas card? But, it totally works to create a bright and cheerful holiday card! I love the LID stitched dies, and will definitely be playing along with this challenge to see if I can stretch my imagination.
