I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Mini Cards

Hi all!

I was digging in my envelope drawer and I found this small stack of mini envelopes so I decided to make some cards to go with them. The finished size of the cards is 3 x 2.5.

They went together really quickly. I made 4 birthday cards and three without sentiment, so they can be personalized later.
Here is a close-up of a few of the cards:

The Stamp is from Stampin' Up, and I have the coordinating punch for it. I just colored the flames and candles with a glitter pen. I added a twine bow and used a Fiskars border punch on the edge of the Hot Pink. I made this card also in a blue background/pink stamp color.

Here is the other Birthday one:
the Stamp is Stampin' Up. I hand cut it out. I used the same Fiskars border punch. This one I also made in the opposite color scheme.

Here is a one I used some buttons from my stash. I This one I added some embossing to the top white layer. I also made this one in a green base with yellow and purple buttons.
And the last one:

This has a flower shaped ribbon slide that was in my stash. I also embossed the top white layer on this one too.
These cards went together so fast. I spent maybe an hour on all seven. I really like this smaller size to add with gifts and such, so I may make some more of these soon.

Thanks for visiting today.

Have a Great and Crafty Day!
