Background Bits Mini Note Card Set

I LOVE mini note cards!  This set was made using the Host Set Background Bits.  Each card measures 3 x 3 inches in size and fits perfectly into a Stampin’ Up 3 x 3 Whisper White Square Envelope (not shown).  Mini note cards are perfect for tucking into lunch boxes, office mailboxes, or for use as gift tags!  Colors for these are Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Basic Black, and Whisper White.   Each one is finished with a silver circle from the Metallic Enamel Shapes for a little added bling!

Thoughts and Prayers Friendship Card

Thoughts and Prayers is one of the first stamp sets I bought when I became a demonstrator!  I love the simplicity of the tree and floral images, as well as the beautiful sentiments!  (The sentiment on this card is actually not from the Thoughts & Prayers set though. It’s from the So Many Shells set!) I have used Thoughts & Prayers for many, many occasions, including birthdays, weddings, Mother’s Day, friendship, thank yous, and of course, sympathy cards. This set comes in both clear mount and wood mount, and would make a great addition to your collection!

To make this card, I cut an extra top layer, then used a square from the Layering Squares Thinlits to make a “mask”. This mask was placed over the final top layer, so that the whole layer was covered except for the square that had been cut out. I then used a Stampin’ Sponge to sponge Crumb Cake ink all inside the square to make the background behind the tree. Once it was completely filled in, I removed the mask, stamped the tree and sentiment both in Soft Suede ink, and then added Clear Wink of Stella Glitter to the leaves of the tree!
