She included the sweetest little mini card with them, with the nicest message.
Oh, I just have this bad photo, but you can get the idea...
But mini cards? Whaddat? I have heard little mumblings about these things, but I had not known their virtues until now. Small. Good to stick into or onto things. You could even stick them onto a full-sized card (Hey, let's not get all crazy, now!).
So I had to make a couple, just to give it a go.
Let me be the first to admit that a 3"x3" card kicked my prodigious butt.
Hours. It took HOURS to combine the right shapes, colors, inks, whathaveyous to get this thing designed. I swear, sometimes my brain forgets to release the emergency break.
Anyway, I ended up happy with these, with one reservation.
I made this--
This is all Stampin' Up supplies here, by the way. I'm still a demo for a few more weeks, unless y'all need to buy something. I'm no salesman, it seems. No biggie. But seriously, if y'all need something, I can order it for you.....*sigh*
Anyway, I made a small set of them--
You could stick them in a regular envelope, but then why not just make a regular sized card?
Make the envelopes, and use them as enclosures, or put them with a thank you gift (which I really don't do too, too much).Or, hey! You could leave them on your pillow for your host(ess) to find at your next overnight with friends! Cute, right?
Try these things! You can put the components (and some adhesive) into your bag, and assemble them at the coffee shop. Think of all the conversations that'll start! Being a guy, I think I'd get more weird looks than interested conversation, but you gotta be you, you know?
Hey, Happy Monday, and thanks for stopping by!
