Boxed-Up Birthday Card featuring {Lil' Inker Designs}





Welcome to Day 1 of the Lil' Inker Designs April 2015 Release Blog Hop! (If you're just joining us, head to the Lil' Inker blog to start at the beginning!)

I am sharing my most FAVORITE product of this new release today. The Boxed Up Birthday Die is absolutely a game changer in birthday card creation! Seriously. It's easy to get tired of creating birthday cards, because I have a never-ending need for them. (And that's a good thing - lots of lovely people in the world to celebrate!) But this is a fresh, easy and super fun die to celebrate the people I create for! 

On this card I layered some patterned paper, cardstock, the die-cut sentiment, PLUS one of Lil' Inker Designs new glassine envelopes, that I filled with sequins and sparkles. Then, I clipped it all together with a fun paper clip. 

Next up, another fun and simple birthday card. First I die-cut the Stitched Long and Skinny Rectangle die, and die cut the Starry Sky die from it. Then I scattered a few of the stars around, and added a sentiment from Send Pretty Greetings, onto Speech Bubbles 2. (The speech bubbles are probably my second favorite item in this release. . .although there are so many good things, now that I'm thinking about it - can I REALLY even pick favorites!!???) 


I just love that you came by today - thanks so much for celebrating the new release with us! I hope you're loving what you've seen so far. Remember, we'll be hopping for 3 days, and there's a chance to win one of three $15 gift certificates to the Lil' Inker Shop, so comment on each blog along the way, and then stop back tomorrow for more NEW products and projects! Thanks so much for coming by! xoxo
