Hi! Today I would like to share a card that I made using the new Square Envelope Die for the Big Shot Plus.

I die-cut the envelope using hot pink card.

Using the scored lines as a guide, I trimmed two of the opposite triangles.

I folded the other two to make sure the scoring lines were properly marked. Then, I placed one of the detail Thinlits dies that come in the set. You get 5 different ones so there is plenty to choose from. I secured it with tape.

Because of the amount of detail, before lifting the die I always turn it around to make sure that I have cut it through. Usually with 2 passes it is perfectly cut, but it will depend on the card.

To remove all the small intricate die cuts, I used the Sizzix Accessory - Die Brush & Foam Pad for Wafer-Thin Dies (660513).

I then die cut the circle with the flower Thinlits in and the spiky one, all three dies included on the set. I die cut the spiky one out of light pink, but then preferred in white.

Finally I added a piece of lighter pink for contrast and then the seal.
This would make a lovely wedding invite, I would print the text in the light pink paper and make it double, like a card within a card.

And there it is finished. Very simple with gorgeous detail!
I hope you like it too!
