Wow, two cards in one day? Well I’ve been feeling the need to stamp a lot lately and I’m getting a pile up of cards. This is the card I made for the Ways to Use It challenge. The challenge was to use inchies and while I’m not the one who uses my small images a lot, a challenge is a challenge right? My strawberry is just a tad over an inch, and it is one of the smallest stamps I owned. It also fits perfectly with Kristina Werner’s color challenge along with the Summer Picnic designer series paper.
The base of my card is Real Red and I simply used three 1″ X 5 1/2″ strips of Summer Picnic paper. I then paper pierced around the entire front of the card and added faux stitching with a white Signo Gel pen. I loved the way Michelle used the sketch in this card, and have had it jotted down for a few days now. It helped give me a starting point to use my tiny image. I added the sentiment in Real Red craft ink and embossed with crystal clear embossing powder. I added some ribbon and wanted my flowers to pop so I added the right to the top of it with Bold Brights brads. My image is popped up on dimensionals.
