Hello everyone and welcome to Day 11 of Christmas in July 2021!
It’s also time for another challenge at AAA Cards! This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using a ‘twinchie’. Our optional twist is Christmas in July! Yay!
What is a twinchie I hear you ask? Luckily our lovely admin Jane has provided a description – “a square or circle up to 2″. Everything should be contained in it, (no added mat or layer outside the twinchie). It’s ok not to use all of the 2″ allowed, but nothing should spill over”.
I have to confess, I was very tempted to go with an inchie again as I really enjoyed the challenge of just using a square inch, and we had some AMAZING cards in our gallery for the last inchie challenge. I don’t use imperial so I was really surprised at how big a twinchie seemed after planning for an inchie. Nevertheless, in the end I went with the challenge theme as the larger size means I can use my beloved dies!
I used the fabulous Poppystamps Modern Wreath die which has a diameter of 44mm which is perfect for the challenge theme. I cut the wreath from various glitter papers and then inlaid the die cut pieces.
To complete my card I added a sentiment from my go-to Mama Elephant set – I was so pleased to find that it fit the centre of the wreath!
Hope you can play along with us!
Thanks for stopping by!
