Mini Card Message Panel Card

Happy Sunday, Everyone! A few weeks ago I had bought a "value" set of scrapbooking stuff and the set contained mini 3.5 x 3.5 card bases that had no envelope to go along with them.

I don't have envelopes that could accommodate the cards and I wasn't in the mood to create my own envelopes so I decided to attach the mini cards to a 5.5 x 5.5" card base and treat it as a design element.

It gave me a great opportunity to use some of my scrap designer paper as well so I made a bunch of these cards. It was so quick and easy to create the cards that it was actually quite fun. I actually made 4 of them really quickly and I'll be posting them in the next few days.

All I did was attach a small panel on to the mini card and added the Prima flower. I decorated the card base with designer paper and attached the mini card on to the card base.

Rather than adding a sentiment to the outer aspect of the card, I decided to stamp the inner panel of the mini card. To finish up the card, I added a ribbon. I think this card took me about 15 to 20 minutes to create. It was super fast. Love it!

Anyway. . .not much else to the card. I'll post the other similar cards I made later.

Hope y'all have a fabulous day!!
