A stampwithbev Technique Tuesday

Hi Friends!

There are times when a full card just isn't necessary or easy to do. There are times when the thought of trying to fill an entire 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" canvass just seems overwhelming. There are times when you just want to make and send a quick tiny card alone or with a gift.  Mini cards to the rescue!

What you need for each cardbase is a piece of cardstock measuring 6" by 3". Fold it in half. The coloured cardstock between the base and whisper white measures 2-3/4" square. The piece of whisper white measures 2-1/2" square. This is your mini-card canvass. Pick an image you wish to use. Here is a list of the stamps I've used:

Awesomely Artistic
Sprinkles of Life
Butterfly Basics

Add some colour. To add the shading around the bottom of the trees or around images like the ship, I used an aquapainter filled with rubbing alcohol and picked up some ink from the appropriate inkpad. For the leaves on the trees I stamped them twice in coordinating colours and just offset them a bit on the paper. Add a sentiment and you're done!

You just need to make or purchase some 3"x3" envelopes. Stampin' Up! does not sell this size anymore. I found mine in packs of 20 at Michaels.

That's all folks!

And ... may you ...
