Another Inchie Challenge!

Yes, another inchie project! I just couldn't help myself...an idea popped into my head and I just had to attempt it and create another inchie card!

This one was made a little differently than my first one. I actually used 1" x 1" folded inchies cards on this, rather than using 1"x 1" squares on it, like my previous one. Did you get a chance to see it in yesterday's post?

To make this card, I first cut my 4 inchie cards out and scored them in the middle. I then stamped the leaf image with Embossing ink, sprinkled it with copper embossing powder and heat set it. I repeated this for each inchie stamping the leaf in a different position each time.

I used "the beauty of autumn..." stamp in sections to stamp one word on the inside of each inchie as you can see in this picture below.

Next, I matted each inchie card on copper cardstock, making adjustments so that I would be able to tuck the upper right corner of each inchie into the copper mat, so that it would keep the inchie card closed.

Then, I cut a 5 1/8" x 1 3/4" piece of yellow-orange cardstock and matted it on brown cardstock. I arranged each inchies side by side on top of the yeloow-orange cardstock.

I created the A2 size cardstock base from smooth orange colored cardstock. I finalized this card by heat embossing the leaf border stamp with copper embossing powder on the top and bottom portions of the card base, and adhered my matted inchie piece to the center of the card.
