I wanted to share some mini 3" x 3" cards that I made to include with my customers' orders. I like to let them know how much I appreciate their orders and add some little personalized comments, so these little cards are the perfect way. And, as I learned from my upline, if I just write on a post-it note and don't put their names on the envelope, they can re-use the card!
The colour palette is from Dynamic Duo's Challenge #40, a black tie challenge along with Tempting Turquoise.
I wanted to focus the design on the soda pop caps, new in the Spring Mini Catalogue, and I just learned how to squish them properly, and it actually worked! WOW! I punched out centers using the 1" Circle punch and stamped them with images from the Collage Curios stamp set, also available in the Spring Mini. The stamped doily is from the Delicate Doilies stamp set, while the sentiment is from a lovely little set called Kindness Matters. The black doily behind each squished soda pop top is created using the Delicate Doilies Sizzlets L. It makes lovely die-cut doilies, but you must take the time to poke out ALL the little bits the die creates but doesn't fully liberate from the card stock. I use either my Paper Piercer or the stylus from my Simply Scored scoring tool.
I still may do a full standard-sized card for this challenge (so I can add the dessert option of clouds), but I will do some more work on that tomorrow! See you then for a MOJO Monday design.
