Hum...not really moving me. Not crazy about the bright colors or the "go team" tag...but I quickly realized that the inside pieces were 1" x 1" and instantly thought of creating something with "inchies" as part of my card. My favorite thing to do with inchies (maybe this is how it's done anyway) is to find a stamp that is larger than the 1" square and stamp only a portion of it onto my inchie.
I found that one of my Odd Bird Planet stamps would be perfect for this type of project. (I also decided to cover both of the squares with a plain white cardstock for a clean stamping surface.) I used just a portion of the birthday stack image on both squares, highlighting two different sections of the stamp, and then colored the images with Copic markers. Since this was going to be a birthday card, I used an OBP background stamp, I love cake, to create the bottom layer of the card. (I adore this background stamp, it is so much fun!) And I will confess that I tried really hard not to age the edges of my card but...I just can't help myself...I need brown on everything I make! I love it! hee hee
The middle section of the card was stamped with a few SU! stamps to create the argyle background and then a length of wide grosgrain was added around the center. Oh, and small white scallops are peeking out from behind the pumpkin pie cardstock. I also wanted a little color behind my inchies so I took a small square and cut it in half diagonally, creating a small frame for each square. And that, my friends, was easy as cake! :-)
Now it's time for you to play along! Create a card using inchies and leave a comment with a link back to your blog...I wanna see what you made!
You'll have until Monday, 6/16, to post a link and then I'll list everyone's creations here on my blog. Perhaps I'll choose a winning design and send off a little blog candy...maybe a hand full of chipboard! hee hee
