Mini Notecards by Lisa

Good morning crafty friends! 
I'm over on the Kat Scrappiness blog today to bring you a sweet mini trio of notecards. I have an easy technique that I think you are going to fall in love with. We are going to make mini notecards using the nested dies we all love and reach for all the time for our regular sized cards. The finished size of each card is approximately 4 1/8" x 2 3/4". What you need is the largest die from any of your nested die sets.  I've used rectangles but squares would work as well.  The 3 nested die sets I've used are the Stitched Postage Stamp Edge Rectangles, the Stitched Scalloped Rectangles and the Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle Dies

For my trio of sweet cards I used patterned paper for the card base for some color and variety but any paper or card stock would work.

 After I die cut the largest size die from each set, I folded the paper in half to create a mini card.  

Then comes the fun part! Decorate to your heart's desire! I added a piece of white card stock to the front of each mini card and stamped a background with florals and then popped the focal points up on foam tape. I used the Scripty "Hello My Crafty Friend" die as the sentiment on 2 of the cards. I finished each card off with some pretty colored twine and 3 sparkly sequins from the Barbie Sequin mix. I stuck with the rule of 3 to place my sequins down and it was just the right amount of added sparkle. Since the card base is made from dies that have decorative edges, your cards will have 3 fancy edges that are so pretty!

Making these mini notecards is a cinch and uses dies that you probably already have in your stash.  Kat's nested dies are the perfect size to create these mini cards. It might not be a new technique but it sure is fun! Small notecards are perfect for lunchbox notes, quick thank you cards or for any occasion that calls for a quick small card! For some added fun you can make your envelope out of the same patterned paper to match your card.  The possibilities are endless!
