Elzybells Challenge - Inchies

Elizabeth sent us the challenge of using inchies this fortnight - 1x1" squares used on a card. Must admit I have never done this before so had a challenge thinking what to do! I am not very happy with this card but it was the best I could do at the time. I have kept it simple by stamping the christmas robins in the squares and mounting them to the base with 3D foam pads. The base is red CS layered up with Doodlebug Swiss paper on to a white card blank with ribbon wrapped around. Greeting stamped then punched out using my McGill Retro Word punch. Please take a look at the other DT creations on Elizabeth's blog - they are fantastic.

STAMPS: Elzybells Art Stamps. INK: Airondack Pitch Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Bazzill Basics, patterned paper by doodlebug Designs. ACCESSORIES: EK Sucess 1" punch, McGill Retro Word Punch, ribbon by Ribbon Oasis, Copic Markers.
