The challenge at AAA Cards Clean and Simple Challenges is to create a card using an inchie…..one inchie, no sentiment with a black and white option. I never really got into or completely understood “inchie” but that didn’t stop me from picking up an Inkadinkadoo inchie stamp set many years ago. I stamped the butterfly inchie in versamark ink on black cardstock and heat embossed in black. I also cut a one inch square to off set my stamped image and rounded the corners of the card base. Hmmmm….looked unfinished so in keeping with the challenge decided to work on the inside of the card. Using Butterfly on the Border die from Technique Tuesday, adding some color and stamping a sentiment from Concord & 9th’s Dahlia turnabout stamp set in versamark and white embossing powder the card seemed a little more interesting.
The first card I made was with a black base with a different inchie and heat embossed in white but opted on the white card base for the challenge. The inside black used the same Concord & 9th sentiment, a flourish die from Cheery Lynn dies and a Bonnie frame. I punched my butterfly with a EK Butterfly punch that creates different cuts of the same butterfly.

I like your card. The inside it interesting. I like seeing your light box in the unedited version.
Stunning! Love it! Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you join in with future challenges too. Stay safe and keep crafting!
Thanks for another fun and very interesting challenge.
Thanks, Lisa, this was an interesting challenge and all that white space was throwing me off so I needed more inside.
I never got on the inchie bandwagon either, but you really nailed it. I like how you decorated the inside.
Like both the cards – the inside of the first one is beautiful! I’ve made cards with 3 inches, but never just one!
It was a lot of space…I may add another something to the outside before sending it out.
What a tough challenge! So hard to put so little on the card front, but yours look amazing! Love the insides as well.
I love how you decorated the inside. If you fold it in the other direction, you have a highly decorated front and an interesting inside. I really like the look of the black one, though no clue why it just jumps out at me. That inside is beautiful, as well. What a fun take on the challenge.
Interesting challenge and you really nailed it. Great layout on the insides.
I know you well enough to know that this card was a real challenge for you as you rarely do one with lots of white space. Then you added the inside and I chuckled. Its a great card but I’ll bet having the fun on the inside satisfied your soul in a big way.
LOL…you are correct. I was going to add to the front later but decided the inside surprise would be more satisfying. Hugs.
Love that clean card! It doesn´t look unfinished. Great work! Thanks for joining AAA Cards! Hugs Åsa
Thanks for your support. I struggle with CAS but am enjoying the challenge and the challenge of not adding any more to my card.
Very lovely cards! Thanks for playing along with us at AAACards!
