LID:: Stitched Starts



Every great dream begins with a dreamer.
Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion
to reach for the stars to change the world.

~Harriet Tubman


It's the final day of the September Release for Lil' Inker Designs! You should have arrived from Jen R.'s blog, if you are following the hop. (If you need more details, or want to start from the beginning, hop on over to the Lil' Inker Designs Blog.)

Last but not least, I've got a clean and simple, somewhat interactive, card featuring the Stitched Stars Dies.


This card started with a folded piece of cardstock in which I die cut one of the stitched stars from the upper middle portion of the card. It is so cool that LID's signature stitching also shows on the remaing portion of the card, as well as the die cut portion! I then die cut the smallest star twice out of yellow cardstock and adhered the two together, sandwiching a length of fishing line between the two.






I suspended the small star in the center of the large star with washi tape on the inside of the card. The sentiment is from LID's Sentiment Flag Additions Stamp Set and the banner was custom made with the stitched sentiment flag (just flip the die around before cutting the whole length.)


I hope you enjoyed all three days of the release!
