Card Making

Hi Everybody,

I posted a video on YouTube, challenging myself to put to use all my scrap card stock. Well I decide to try and make some mini mote cards.

Please let me say, as I did in my video I am not a professional crafter, I have had no formal training/classes in any type of art. I see things I like and get inspired and try to recreate or put my on unique stamp on things. I hope these little cards inspire you also, to tap into your inner crafter, we all have one.

I think these little cards would be great hostess gifts, secret Santa, or just to have on hand when you need to package a last minute gift.

Any positive feedback or helpful suggestions would be welcome.

Stay Crafty,

Card One-These are nature inspired-sentiments, thanks, congrats, thinking of you, and just because, embellished with a little bling, and matching stamped envelope.

Card Two-Flower, premade embellishments, on plain white card stock with a one inch strip of patterned paper to ground them, and coordinating ric-rak to finish off.

Card Three-Fruit Card-Close To My Heart Stamp-when seen up close looks like an actual sketch...beautiful stamp...each little quote matches the Apple...Love you to the core...super cute. I did note do anything elaborate with these as they look really nice all by themselves.

Card Four-Caffiene Inspired-All made from scrap card stock,  stamped a little glitter gel to emphasize the heart. I stamped the envelope and the inside of card with a strip of coffee beans. I also made a pizza box with coordinating band so cards/envelopes could fit inside.

Card Five-Birthday- I had some colored balloons with glitter, so I did a picture window, with postage stamp punch, on front each card stamped with coordinating color ink with candles and sentiment "make a wish", in side, 'happy birthday". I also stamped envelopes to coordinate.


  1. Thanks Linda... I was inspired by some many mini card makers on youtube and pininterest. Now i have a new craft love.
