Welcome to the April release hop for Lil’ Inker Designs! This is a release hop - you should’ve arrived here from Laura’s fabulous blog if you’re hopping along the entire hop. Before I get started though, I thought you should know that this will be the last hop for me with Lil’ Inker. I’ve decided to step down from the team and focus my brain on my business. (I recently inherited the family business after moving it across the state.) I’ll be taking a bit of a crafty break to build the store and recharge my mojo. I’ve loved working for Laura and Lil’ Inkers!! I couldn’t have asked for a better ‘boss’! Thank you for giving me this fabulous opportunity! Ok, on to today’s card
Lots of new and old LID dies on this one! To begin, I cut the new Quilted Stitched Pattern die onto the card face. Umm, I LOVE this die! It is the perfect background to me – not to fussy, not too understated, just right! The pattern paper rectangle is cut with Stitched Mats Rectangles. I wanted a thinner one though, so I cut it and then slid the paper to the desired width and cut again. The stitching doesn’t meet up perfectly, but with this busy of a pattern you don’t notice unless I tell you to look…so don’t! ;) Next up is one of the new Glassine Envelopes – perfect for a little lunchbox note, goodies or to hold a tag like I did here.
The Anytime tag is stamped with a super cute sentiment from the new stamp set, You’re My Favorite, and adorned with the flowers from the Frames & Flowers die set. I attached a duplicate of the flower and leaf cluster to the front of the envelope to hide the foam dot. One last little detail of the Mom word die across the layout finishes it off! WooHoo! One of my mother’s day cards done early!
