Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Expressions Thinlit Dies


Here's a little 10cm x 10cm square card that would be great for a Valentine or just a little cute note to leave for your special someone. :)

I made this for the Dynamic Duos challenge this week which is a cool "Triple Threat" colour challenge of Raspberry Ripple, Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride. 

I took this opportunity to break out my Expressions Thinlit Dies and have a play with them. I thought the 'love' script would look cool over a big heart shape. I took the advice of a few US demos who recommend the use of wax paper when using the thinlit dies.....put some wax paper between the die and your card stock and the card stock will come out of the die perfectly and it won't rip. :)

For my Australian followers, Coles Supermarket sell "Waxed Lunch Paper" in their baking paper/aluminium foil section. 

Here's my card....
