mini cards

 These are some mini notecards, using 4"x4" white card blanks, just the right size for quick notes.

They are very quick to make as well, I don't think the three of them took longer than 15 minutes at most to make (admittedly, I have friends who swear that I work so quickly that I can do 3 cards in the time it takes them to make 1 - I think they couldn't go more slowly if they tried!)
I cut a mask using a circular die and copy paper, making sure that the hole was towards the centre of the paper. Position this mask over the front of the card blank, and create a mini landscape using distress inks, brushes and the traditional torn copy paper to create the hills. I used peeled paint and broken china inks, as I didn't want too strong an image.
I removed the mask, then stamped the solid  thistle stamp from the wild meadow stamp sheet in black memento ink across the card for the first two cards.

The third card I inked the trees from landscape edges in peeled paint and stamped them befored removing the mask - I also stamped the two birds from the same set  in broken china.


  1. These are great - always good to have a few notelets around for quick thankyous etc.

  2. These are lovely. Great color combo and design.
    Have a nice weekend.
