I have an ongoing crafty problem: I cannot make cards.
I just can't.
I have no card mojo at all.
However, I have found a clever workaround!
Lisa from Inchie Arts sent me a package bursting at the seams with wonderful Inchie Arts products!
But before I get into that, let's discuss what inchies are, in case you don't know. Inchies are 1"x1" pieces of art. Tiny, tiny little treasures! Twinchies are 2"x2" pieces of work. And they feel huge after working on an inchie!
Inchie Arts makes mat board squares (black, white, and in 5 neutral tones) in 1", 1.5" and 2" sizes. I received a wonderful assortment of them plus some small cards and envelopes called "Inchie Notes." Can you already visualize my solution to my inability to make cards?
Basically, I made a bunch of inchies and twinchies and whatever you call that in-between size, and glued them onto the cards! Check it out:
This is a twinchie and I used watercolor crayons to create the big heart. The mat board squares are really wonderful. They take dry and wet media. Don't wrinkle or peel. They stood up to the heat gun really well. And lots of layers. I'm definitely a fan.
Thanks for stopping by!
