Recently, I scrolled through some of my recent cards and thought about design and what I liked about certain creations and what I didn't love about others. That got me thinking about being inspired. Why not take a card or a series of cards that you love, and downsize them -- make them a mini version?
Let's take a look at my creative process!
Instead of making a rectangle card, I decided to use some stitched circle dies to create not only my card base but the layers as well. I folded a 4" by 4" piece of black card stock and then set my die on top, leaving just a sliver of the card at the fold to keep the card's integrity and still have a circle shape. Then, I used one size smaller die for my white layer. And, I cut one smaller from that to serve as my mask so that I could sponge on that bold color.
First up, if you looked at the tutorial link, you know I stamped the poppies stamp in black ink and then colored it all up using a black marker to create a silhouette.
And then, the fun continued! Not only did I add a little pizazz to the envelope...
I added a little something extra to the inside of my mini card!
If you missed it, I also make an envelope liner using that pop of orange on the inside...
And that, my friends, is it! Do you need/want a little more inspiration on this Friday to help you get those creative ideas rolling just in time for the weekend? Well, check out these fine ladies and see what they've been up to!
Thanks for stopping by! Until next time!
