The current challenge at the All Things Unity blog (ATU22) is to make mini cards, no bigger than 3"x3". What they don't tell you is that making these mini cards can be kind of addicting! With their small size, you can make them as simple or as detailed as you like. My first one is really simple.
Both images are from Unity's October 2010 Kit of the Month. I stamped and cut out the happiness banner, and popped it on the card base, where I'd stamped the small hearts image and added a strip of razzleberry cardstock.
For my second card, I added a little layering and colouring.
The image and sentiment are from the Unity set Mix-Up of Cuteness. I was going to make the kettle stainless steel, but then decided to go for a retro red enamel one. My dream kitchen has always been red and white; in real life, it's green and cream. Funny how that happens. ;)
My third card gets very fancy... for me, anyway.
Patterned paper AND multi-media colouring! These cherries are also from Mix-Up of Cuteness. The cherries and leaves are coloured with Sharpies; the stems with Prismacolor pencils.
These were all fun and quick to make! I think there will be more mini-cards in my future. ☺
