Today I have two cards to share for the  Twofer Card challenge #8 where the theme is `geometric`. For both cards I used the Memory Box die `Mini Perfect Patches` to make my inchies, that means `square` is my choice of geometric shape.

Card 1) Dogs - Just because
This is the first card I made. I used dog stamps from a freebie set, a tree stamp from Hot off the Press,  a MFT wonky sticthed die and Maja DP. The sentiment - Just because - is from a paper pad from Kaisercraft.
This card is also for:
Dream Valley Challenges - #184 ANIMALS
Cardz 4 Galz - #78 Dies & Or Punches
Crafting With An Attitude - Always Anything Goes

Card 1) Christmas
This card was inspired by the sketch over at LIM. First I stamped onto the card base, then I added m inchies and stamped a second time. I added a die cut merry from Tim Holtz, made the Christmas with my Dymo and added a few sequins.
This card is also for:
Less Is More - #378 Sketch
Fussy and Fancy - #218 CLEAN AND SIMPLE
Happy Little Stampers Christmas - Anything Goes + option sequins

I love how you used your inchies for both these designs, Pia! Those little dogs are so adorable on your Just Because card and I'm loving all the other great layers, patterns, and details! And your Christmas card is a beautiful CAS design, perfect for the LIM sketch! I love that Nordic pattern on a Christmas card and the way you've nestled your lovely sediment with the pattern! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #8! Hugs, Darnell

These are lovely, Pia. Such great inspiration on how to use those small dies. I have a ton and never know what to do with them :-)
Have a wonderful week.

sandie said...

super cards Pia, love the Xmas card design-like the different sizes of snowflakes-like they falling, gives good movement and fab placement of the sentiment-a great take on the sketch. Hope all is well, not getting much time to visit you between poorly health and admin work so please do forgive me....going away on 30th so hoping to re-charge after that!

Donna said...

Fabulous Christmas card and your dog card is just adorable!

MaryH said...

What a wonderfully versatile die this patch shape is. Love the diverse looks you've created on each of your 2fer cards. Love the 'crosstitch' look of your Poinsettia, and the little critter zoo is just totally delightful & fun! Good job! TFS & Hugs

Mimi said...

That inchie die is so versatile! What a great item to have in your craft stash. Of course both cards are top-notch, that second card is so clean and modern, with just the right amount of traditional and non-traditional (exemplified by the fonts perfectly), which I love in a holiday card.
