 hello sweet stampers!

I have a lovely little card for you.  The good people at AAA Cards have a terrific challenge at the moment - one inchie! Plenty of ideas presented themselves, but fully containing it all in one inch is no mean feat. And keeping it black and white...Brilliant!

I decided to do one inch popped up on foam squares to add dimension. The tiny square can otherwise be lost in the sea of white. To add interest, I also mounted it using the rule of thirds so that the little bird's eye is perfectly at the top right intersection.

I started by stamping the bird then die cut it out. I used just a portion of the branch stamp from the same set, added the flowers and positioned the bird on the branch using foam squares to pop him out a bit. There was just enough room left for the sentiment. 

I love the one inchie - what a great idea.  I may have to invest in more tiny stamps though...

Thanks for stopping by!
