Altered Inchie Thank You

I promised I'd share a second card using the Cute by the Inch stamp set from the Hostess line, and this is it. The layout is simple and makes this a quick and easy card to duplicate for numerous occasions, since there are a variety of images.

The panel of Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper is offset by two score lines, and the Daffodil Delight 1/4" grosgrain ribbon provides just the right accent color.

The inchie looks a little different when stamped; it has a "u" underneath the word "thank". I'm a journalist and I have to grit my teeth to use shortcuts like these when I'm texting (only to save characters), so I couldn't leave it like that on my card. I cut a piece of Real Red card stock to cover it and used my Billboard Alphabet for my Big Shot to spell out y.o.u. in Whisper White card stock. Aaahhhh...that calms my OCD brain!

Here's what the entire card looks like. Again, did I mention how quickly this came together? Love that, and love those inchies!

If you don't own this set, you can make your own inchies using any small image and cropping it to 1" square. Try it and see what you come up with. I bet you'll be hooked on these miniatures like I am.

Thanks to Amy Voida of Gone Inkognito for this layout!
