Hello there! Have you been enjoying the sneak peeks from the upcoming catalog? I know there have been a TON available through various sites. Beginning Monday of this week- I will again be focusing on the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog as well as retiring products. I will occasionally be throwing in a sneak peek but the majority of my postings will share the current and retiring products.
My post for tonight is a set of four 3" x 3" cards. I love to make these little cards mostly because they're perfect to give with a gift. They are easy to create, take very little time to make and typically don't use many supplies. Their size is what makes them fun!
I totally adore the floral image from the Wood Words stamp set. A few weeks ago I used it as a border along the outside edge of a card. (See this post here) I loved how it turned out and thought it would be the perfect addition to my 3" x 3" cards.
This one is my favorite 💕 It's just so sweet! I love how each of the images in the Wood Words set either the heart, the star, the circle or the rooster are all distressed. It adds a somewhat country feel to the cards.
The images all measure around 1" and are the perfect size for 3" x 3" cards. They're not too big, they're not too small. They are just right!
Pair the images with a coordinating sentiment or in the case of this card- use only a portion of the sentiment. Either way- it's super cute!
Why yes that is a rooster! LOVE the rooster! I paired the rooster with the Fresh Treats sentiment as it reminded me of farm fresh goodness!
To create the floral border on each of these cards, I used a piece of Washi Tape to mask off a 1/2" section. I then inked the floral image with Basic Black Archival Ink and stamped in the border. I then removed the Washi Tape and added a thin strip of Gold Glimmer paper and a 2-1/2" x 3" layer. Then I stamped/embellished the rest of the card.
Thanks for stopping by!
