The new challenge at Jingle Belles is to use inchies or twinchies. I know for a fact that I have both in my possession ... somewhere ... but they failed to materialize when I was making this card. I was forced - FORCED, I tell you! - to go to Plan B, which was to fake it.
Here's my card, then I'll explain:
I could have used a 1" square punch, but since I sold all my square punches, I started looking for a square die. I have a bazillion of them, but I decided to open and use some Avery Elle Rounded Diamonds dies instead. I also tried to use the matching stamp set, but that effort failed. I'll link to it below anyway, in case you are weak and discover you need them like I did. Hey, I'm just trying to help, here ...
Then I measured the die, and it was *gasp* 1 1/4", not 1". FAIL! FAIL! Hopefully the Belles will see my effort was in the spirit of the challenge, and not disqualify me.
I broke out my Lawn Fawn Peace Love Joy 6x6 paper pack and took full advantage of the matchy-matchy papers. I was also lucky that the SU brad is sooooo very close in color to that red paper.
I followed this almost-two-weeks-old sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:
Since I didn't use the coordinating stamps, they went back into the New and Not Used Yet pile, to be addressed at another time.
Wow, I'm two-for-two this year! Whoot! Let's see how long I can keep this up. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
