I have a mini for you this Monday morning! This cute little card measures only 3" x 3" and it's perfect for a short little note to tuck inside a gift or a lunchbox.
I used Basket of Wishes for the images. This is a great set for summer and fall with its sunflowers and pumpkins. I adore the images in this photopolymer stamp set.
To make the card, I started by stamping the small basket and sunflower images onto a
2-3/4" square of Whisper White with Basic Black Archival Ink. With my Blender Pen and ink from the Classic Stampin' Pads, I colored in all of the images. I used Crushed Curry, Fresh Fig, Wild Wasabi, and Crumb Cake.
Next I carefully cut two slits on either side of the basket and threaded a 5" length of Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon through the slits. I secured the ends to the back with Fast Fuse, and tied a little knot with another small piece and attached it with a Glue Dot.
I stamped Thinking of You in Fresh Fig and added one Curry Glitter Enamel Dot, then glued the whole panel to a Fresh Fig card base that measures 3" x 3". It starts out 3" x 6", scored at 3".
A bit of Fresh Fig Fresh Floral DSP to decorate the envelope flap ties it together nicely with the card.
I love these little 3 x 3's. How about you? Did you know that the 3 x 3 envelopes are coming back in the 2017 Holiday Catalog? I'm soooo glad Stampin' Up! has brought them back. They were missed by many of us!
Go have a great day! Let me know what you think of my card. I love to hear from you!
