FTTC185 Mini Cards

Hi all, it's Timeless Tuesday time!  Broni is our hostess this week and she challenging us to make "mini cards" no larger than 3" x 4"....sweet! I love making mini cards!  I went with a CAS design using my With Gratitude set from Flourishes.


My card measures 4" high x 3" wide, the flowers were stamped directly onto the Kraft card base, and then I stamped the sentiment on vellum, attached it with small glue dots on the back, and then covered up those glue dots with Kaiser Pearls.

Here are links to the rest of the Timeless Tuesday team so you can hop around for more mini card inspiration...

So cute Denise! One of the things I love the best about Flourishes stamps is that they hold their own. The detail is so fabulous you can create something beautiful like this even without color!
