Denami Mini Cards
The day is here for the Denami Designs Mini Cards Blog Hop!
So glad you hopped over from Heidi's blog She sure is a talented lady! Be sure to leave a comment on each page as you hop along so that you are entered to win one of the $20 gift certificates.
Summer has been so busy but there was no way I was going to miss this blog hop. I absolutely love making mini cards! I almost made 12 mini cards for this hop. I really wanted to...one for each month using chickies...okay, I talked myself out of it and enjoyed some pool time instead.
But back to the cards I did make...
I tend to give a lot of gift cards for baby gifts but I hate just putting it in a card. I need to be a bit more creative. I like to buy miniature gift bags but then you have a card that looks giant next to it. These little mini cards are perfect.
I cut my card base 3" x 6" for a 3 x 3 card. Don't think just because it's small that the card will be boring. You can add a ton of layers on a mini card. Scallops and circle punches are a staple for me...and of course Denami Stamps!
I used gingham paper because it had a cute mini print. For the boy card, I used the baby bottle from the PF24 Baby Stamp Set and F166 Baby Circle. For the girl card, I used C72 chickie with flower.
I hope you enjoyed my mini cards...now off to Tenia's page
