Tiny Card! That's what today's challenge told me instantly, within seconds....when I viewed the sketch below for our challenge at Create with Connie & Mary. I love it when that happens! Take a look:

I've been wanting to use the "Merry Mini's Stamp Set" for quite some time now and this was the perfect opportunity. I created a 3" x 3" card with matching envelope:

What a cute way to dress up a really, really small card. And these petite ornaments were perfect. I used one of the label shapes from "Apothecary Accents Framelit Dies" in "Primrose Petals Cardstock" layered over "Snow Festival DSP":

Want a quick & easy way to decorate the flap of your envelope? Trace the flap, hand-cut and then glue on top of the existing flap. Did you know that we at Stampin' Up! sell these tiny envelopes? I had a "Techniques Class" a few weeks ago where we used these for our project and the girls were amazed to find out we sold these in our catalog! If you are interested, the item is #107309!

  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Primrose Petals
  • Inks: Gumball Green, Baja Breeze, Raspberry Ripple
  • DSP: Snow Festival

  • Stamp Sets: Merry Mini's, Teeny Tiny Wishes

  1. I LOVE this little card with coordinating envelope! I will be making lots of these for holiday gift bags! Thanks for sharing your incredible talent!

  2. ADORABLE!!! I love the little ornaments with the coordinating designer paper! Perfect! And I love how you dressed up the envelope!

  3. Cute! We were both thinking the same thing with this sketch! I do love the matching envelope. 3x3s are always fun to make and you are so right that the Merry Minis is perfect for that size.

  4. Super super sweet! I even think the framelit layer would make a perfect tag for a package--consider it CASED! Smiles, Elizabeth

  5. This stamp set and punches is the PERFECT thing for this sketch! Darling! Love the DSP, too!
