CR84FN22 & WMSC #41


Hi there, friends!  I'm back to share a set of mini cards I whipped up this afternoon while my little guy was napping, an increasingly rare occurrence around here!  I combined this week's colors at CR84FN and the sketch challenge from Waltzingmouse, which is to create mini cards.  I always include a little thank you note with my Etsy orders, so it's good to have a stash of these on hand!


















I kept the cards simple so as not to overpower the smallish size of the cards (3.5 inch square).  Each one has a kraft card base with a woodgrain embossed panel of Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate, or Ripe Avocado.  I used strips of patterned paper from PTI's Green Tea Leaves collection.


The gorgeous label is from Waltzingmouse's Vintage Labels 18, stamped onto Vintage Cream cardstock.  I finally picked up the coordinating Spellbinders dies last weekend, and this is probably my new favorite label shape.  


The sentiment is from PTI's Mat Stack 1 Collection, and the leaves are from Turning a New Leaf.  I added a few random chocolate pearls for a little something extra.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate, Ripe Avocado, Vintage Cream), Bazzill (kraft)
Patterned paper:  Papertrey Ink (Green Tea Leaves Collection)
Stamps:  Waltzingmouse (Vintage Labels 18), Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack 1 Collection, Turning a New Leaf)
Ink:  Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate), Clearsnap (Lettuce)
Tools:  Spellbinders (Labels 18 die), We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)
Accessories:  Michaels (pearls)

These were super easy to put together, so it's a great design for mass producing.  So glad I had a chance to play along with both of these challenges this week!

Thanks for stopping by tonight!  Have a happy Friday, folks!
