Bright and Fun Mini Cards

Today I want to share my project for Mini Card Week! Oh, how I love mini cards!!! The cards I created today are all fun and bright and I used my newest Spellbinders dies (Labels Four).  And don't forget that there are now Spellbinders dies available in the SP & Company store!

Here are the dies that I used, in action (well, not really in action, but right after they were in action):

Those fun papers are from Echo Park's Candy Shoppe Kit - *Swoon*! They are all 2-sided and  I love the look of the dots and stripes together.  For the pink one, I die cut the same frame twice and then die cut the center afterwards.  I used some pop dots to create a really cool frame.  I LOVE how it looks!

The joy of creating mini cards is that they are quick to do, and you can use your scraps since they are all small (which I did - ALL of these cards were made with scraps).

I made sure all 3 of my cards had similar elements (the sentiment from Stitchery Doo Banners was stamped on a die cut), but they all have different layouts.

I think this one is sooo fun! I love the different patterns all placed together.  I simply cut that yellow strip and added some tissue tape I had on hand, then placed the die a little off-centered onto the card.

One card done!

For this card, I stamped the grid from Journal This onto the base, cut the pink strip, sewed it onto the card and then placed the die cut onto the card.  Those little circles are from my All Zipped Up set.

Second card done!

For my last card, I stamped Large Polkadot at the top, and took some scraps and stamped the small banners from Stitchery Doo Banners.  I added that die cut and....

Card three done!

I love using mini cards to give as gifts, too.  It's so easy and fun to create little note cards and box them up! If you don't have a scoreboard to make the matching envelopes, I've seen them at all of my local craft stores and online, too.  

Thanks for stopping by today!
