AAA Cards One Inch Strip

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using a one inch strip only. Our optional twist for this challenge is ‘coloured card base’!

I wanted to use one of my border dies for this card – quite a few were wider than an inch but this old Poppystamps Bubble Daisy Border die was well under an inch, which meant I’d have room for a sentiment too. Yay!

I decided to do some inlaid die cutting so I cut the image four times – once in white then once again in the colours for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (red, yellow and blue). I originally wanted to adhere it to a kraft card base, to follow the optional twist, but I actually preferred the daisy chain on a white background. The colours popped a little more! To complete my card, I added a sentiment by Clearly Besotted.

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, and another of my favourite cardmakers, Janet – go check out her blog, it’s so inspiring!!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!
