365 Cards Day 245 It's a matter of Inches

Today's challenge (and for once it is actually today!) was to use an 'inchie' on your card. What's an 'inchie'? Well it's a one inch square 'topper' that you make in advance (or in my case as you are going along), which you then use on a card. And being only one inch square, there's an awful lot of card left over! I used a 4"x5" card and there's still a lot of empty space...

Cardstock is that Dutch company's 50cm x 70cm card from Puffin Crafts (you're seeing a lot of it as I bought full sheets and also offcuts from when they'd cut it down to A4 (it's not a standard size). The stamped image is from Inkadinkado's 98852 Spring is Here set (strangely of 'inchies' but I didn't feel like using any of the one inch stamps, just this little one. Ink is VersaColor Indigo, Fresh Green and White. Sentiment is a Hero Arts F4090 Quill Smile.

I embossed the fussy cut birds, using fine embossing powder, but it all went a bit pearshaped and not very embossed at all... Still, it means the uneven coverage on the sentiment fits the slightly distressed appearance chortle.
