(I love Elizabeth Allan's TIP/HINT section of her posts, so thought I'd give you one today: Do not stamp wearing your favorite white jeans! That's the other reason I was up late making this card--LOL!)
I added a touch of Stickles to the ends of the petals & then stacked them on top of each other using foam tape. Next I found my old wood block PB "mini leaves" & stamped them twice on mix & match cardstock using Memento Teal Zeal & added Stickles to their centers. It was fun to actually use the 2 smallest dies in the Spellbinders Lacey Circles set to cut the same cardstock. I tried several stamps for the background & discovered a small bold stamp detracted from the flowers, but these lines made of tiny dots from the "salutations" set was just right. I stamped them in each ink color--very easy since the rows are far enough apart to stamp in between with the second color. The sentiment is from that set also. The scallop punch is Fiskars. The edges were all inked & then the pieces were attached to the 2 1/4" x 2 1/2" mini card--Twinchie Plus. Added the tiny gems & it was done. I loved this challenge--first mini card I've ever made. Have to say, trimming out the tiny leaves & flowers did take awhile, but it was worth it. Elizabeth had a great tip for how to mail mini cards: "Tip/Hint: Create a pocket in a rectangular envelope with adhesive applied to the inside left and right envelope edges to prevent the shifting of a smaller size card."
Thanks so much for coming by & leaving me a comment. Wishing you a great, crafty week.
