Happy Friday everyone!
We are just loving mini cards right now! Have you seen how cute the new Make It Mini workshop is!
I just thought I’d share a couple mini cards with you today…maybe just for some weekend inspiration.
For this card, I used some Bazzill cardstock (the teal and white), some kraft cardstock (Canvas Home Basics), Tumbled Glass and Worn Lipstick Distress inks, the Typeset alphabet die from Time Holtz, the Notebook embossing folder from Tim Holtz, the Binding Edge punch from EK Success, an ink applicator with foam pads, my handy-dandy Paper Distresser, the Xyron (best thing ever!), and some adhesive. Oh and a paper trimmer in there too. Super easy mini card.
Here’s another one:
Looks busy, but it’s not! Promise! I used some navy and kraft cardstock, Sepia and Jet Black Archival inks, tissue tape from Tim Holtz, string, light blue gems, Pop Dots, my Paper Distresser, ink applicator with foam pads, and two Tim Holtz stamp sets.
Making regular sized cards is really difficult for me. I have so many great ideas, but never know how to put them on a standard sized card. Minis definitely take the pressure off. I don’t have to put a lot of things on a mini card, which makes it so easy to make a bunch of them in one sitting. Kind of like ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) for those of you that love making those.
Try making some minis today…and be sure to check out Make it Mini at your local Archiver’s!
