Loving the New Thinlits Dies

Hi Stampers!

We've got Thinlits, and they are to "die" for ;)  This weekend I've been designing/CASEing Christmas Cards for my Calendar Club ladies.  We're doing holiday cards for the next three months.

Have you ever wanted to make a moving, flip, or "swing" card, but didn't want to fussy cut to get the motion?  Well, SU! has got just the thing for you - two new Thinlits dies.  So far we've got a Circle and a Label - I'm personally hoping for more in the future.

Here's the first card I made using the new Labels card die:

There are TONS of examples on Pinterest and other websites.  I'd also like to point out that I was short on cardstock that exactly matched the colors on my little strip of DSP here - BUT since our colors really blend so well, I was able to pull out some Pool Party and Not Quite Navy (retired) from my stash without breaking the bank or placing another order right now :)  Hey, I'm on a budget just like all y'all :)  NEVER feel like you "have to have" everything a card shows.  CASE it up a little, change the stamps, make it your own and use up some things you already have!  Maybe someone else's design will inspire you to break into YOUR stash and think out of the box, no?

Now, maybe you ALSO noticed (like I did) that there really isn't a whole lot of space on the card to add a greeting or write a note, unless you flip it over to the back.  Stop back tomorrow & I'll show you another card I made using a tip from a fellow demonstrator which adds more length to the card.
