A few little minis

Hi! It's Julie here today with a quick little post about minis, and I don't mean mini albums. I am talking about mini cards! I love to make small cards (smaller than 4x5). I think they are a great way to use some scraps and cheer up someone's day. I have two minis to show you today.

On the card above, I used scraps that I found in my scrap drawer and I do not recall the manufacturers of them! I just played around with the layers and did my sewing BEFORE I adhered the layers to my card. There's nothing wrong with sewing on your card base but be aware that your sewing will show on the inside of your card. I had also used my Fiskars border punch on one of the scraps to add a little design element. I used Hero Arts and Papertrey Ink stamps to complete the card!

This card also used some scraps. I used Hero Arts stamps on this card, as well as my Fiskars border bunch and some Hero Arts metallic gems!

I hope this inspires you to make you own minis today! They are a lot of fun to make and even more fun to give!

Very cute cards - especially like the graphic look of the second one.
