Lil' Inker Designs November Release Blog Hop {Day 4}


Welcome to {Day 4} of the Lil' Inker Designs November Release Blog Hop! Laura Pryor's blog is the first stop with all the details. Today, the core team is showcasing the Mini Bow Dieand the colour team is featuring Snowman's Soul by Sugar Kissed Cottage.



My card features the top layer of the mini bow laid flat. I die cut five pieces, misted them with Mister Huey's Shine Mist and let them dry. Then I assembled it to resemble a poinsettia and attached it to a white glitter panel on a black card base. I used dies from Jingle Joy to create the sentiment atop the poinsettia.

Here's a comparison of the mini, small and large bow dies against a standard A2 (4.25" x 5.5") card and also against a 5" square card. This way you can better visualize how the bows look on a card that you would make.
