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.
