Wee & Whimsical Wednesday

I'm thinking of adopting a new mantra - "A card a day keeps the therapist away". What do you think? ;) I don't know about you, but I am so much happier when I carve out a little creative time every day.

My Wee & Whimsical Wednesday card today is 4" x 9" and utilizes Inchie + squares from Inchie Arts. I used my Corner Chomper to round the corners, and it worked beautifully cutting right through this artist-quality matboard.

The stamped images are from Alli Miles' latest set with Papertrey Ink - Take Three: Summer. Don't you just love those gorgeous flowers? I stamped them on Ivory Inchie + squares (the Ivory Inchie Arts products coordinate perfectly with PTI's Vintage Cream, which is what I used for my card base). The colors are Hawaiian Shores and Orange Zest; this color combo has a real summer feel to me! I through in some ribbons and buttons to jazz it up a bit. Lining up the Inchie + squares like this draws your attention right in, don't you think? Of course, I love the instant 'matting' effect that you achieve with this, too.

Alright blog friends, have an amazing day! Create something fun today & be well!
