It's Inchies and Twinchies at the Jingle Belles Rock!!

 You know you see the prompt and you get an idea and want to "run" with it and it takes over a week to get 'er done well that's what happened to me. Finally I made time on Saturday to make it happen. I used an old technique that a friend Donna taught us at one of our Ontario Meet-ups. So here is what I made with my "inchies".

I used a page from a 6 X 6 paper pad from Carta Bella, it co-ordinates as it was double sided and I didn't have to decide which to use   soI used both. I used double sided tape on a piece of cardstock to line up (sort of) the inchies, then I ran it though the big shot in an embossing folder.  I didn't want to cover the quilt up so just used a die cut sentiment

Close up to see the embossing folder and the sentiment was cut 3 times and glued together so it is slightly elevated.

Finished the inside, I didn't have a scrap of patterned paper large enough to put on the inside. Of course I used a favourite sentiment, it works for Winter as well as Holiday cards.

I'm enter this in:

The Jingle Belles Rock ~~  Think Big go Little


Let's Squash it!! ~~ embossing folder with an animal (reindeer)  Not sure who made the EF it doesn't have a logo on it but it was a package deal quite a few folders. Might have bought them at Winners.

Christmas Kickstart Challenge ~~  #46 Such a Deer

Thanks for stopping by today and check out the challenges they are fun.

I love your patchwork effect card, Barb! Just looks like a beautiful, cosy, flannel quilt to me. Thanks for playing at Let's Squash It! This would also fit in a Christmas Kickstart too, Jo x

What a great idea for double-sided paper when you like both sides! And then adding the texture gives it that extra bit of cohesiveness. Beautiful!
