inching towards the holidays

this fortnight at ♥JINGLE BELLES we've got a prompt called, "have yourself a merry *LITTLE* christmas" and we'd like to see (can you guess?) inchies! of course, in addition to one-inch squares of design delight on your cards, all of the inchie variations are welcome: twinchies (two inch squares) and rinchies (round one-inch or two-inch circles). need more info or inspiration? check out this craftster definition with links or this great pinterest board! meanwhile, here's my card:

i went with twinchies and i basically cheated. i mention this, because you can, too! i found this fab sheet of american crafts xmas paper on clearance last november at a big box crafting store, so OF COURSE i bought a couple of them. 

being as the squares are two inches each, they are INSTANT twinchies, and the colors and motifs go really well with a bunch of different eyelet outlet holiday brads, as i showed off in this post from last year. this card has fewer squares, because i was attempting another version of this week's awesome sketch saturday. 

i've rotated the sketch and compressed it quite a bit. i like it, though! and i've managed to work in an eyelet outlet poinsettia brad, a sweet cardinal and a candy cane!

stephanie has also got an awesome inchie card to show off. why not hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and check it out right now?


  1. What a great take on the sketch, Great card, I have some of that paper but never thought to use them like that, I focus too much on colouring I think. Love the plaid.

  2. Well this is a great Christmas card. I do love those long slim ones and I never make enough of them. As already said "great use of the sketch too. X

  3. Okay I love your post title..and the inchies. Fab design.
