Mini card with Perfect Blend

IMG_0079

I love making these little mini cards.  Great way to send a little note, and invite friends for coffee?

The best thing about 3×3 cards?  You can get 6 from a sheet of 12×12 inch cardstock… Plus, they’re cute!

To make these I cut a sheet of Whisper White 12×12 cardstock into 3x6inch pieces, then scored on the long side at 3 inches.

Ink the edges of the card base in Baked Brown Sugar ink.

Stamp the Perfect Blend stampset in Early Espresso ink onto Baked Brown Sugar cardstock twice.

Stamp the sentiment onto one of the cups.

Cut around both cup shapes, then cut one in half.

Using Mini Glue Dots, layer the two cup halves onto the card base, with the whole cup over the top (cover the gap!)

Now, do you fancy a coffee? I do!

Label Love birthday card with Gorgeous Grunge

IMG_0071edit

I love simple cards, and this is quite possibly one the simplest I have ever made.

First, trim A4 Whisper White card stock in half, and fold in half to create a card base (Measurements are 14.8cm, by 10.5cm)

Cut Bermuda Bay cardstock to 14.3 x 10 cm, then a third layer of Whiper white at 13.8 x 9.5 cm

Round all corners with the Project Life Corner Punch.

Stamp the smallest layer (Whisper White) with Gorgeous Grunge in Smoky Slate, and Tangerine Tango (I stamped each colour 2 or 3 times)

Stamp the Happy Birthday stamp from the Label Love collectioin onto spare Whisper White cardstock in Bermuda Bay and punch out using the Artisan Label punch.

Build the cards centring each layer on top of the other, using Stampin’ Dimensionals, then add the Happy Birthday label on top dimensionals slightly off centre.

Card is done!

I also made the same card using the same base (Whisper White and Bermuda Bay) but supplemented the other colours with Island Indigo.  Here are the 2 side by side…

IMG_0070editWhat do you think?  Do you have a favourite?  I think adding the Island Indigo gives this card a more masculine feel, and I love that!
