I went a little crazy with the minis ;)

First up, I made a cute little set of Christmas themed cards. I used the following DeNami products;

These cards measure 4.25 x 4.25".  I used Spellbinders Create a Flake 2 dies to make a negative die cut in the white carsdtock. On the base, I stamped the Lacy Flake in Versamark, added some Judykins Sticky Stuff, heated it up then added glitter. The Judykins Sticky Stuff works SOOO much better for glitter that the glue pads IMHO. 

Then I heat embossed each of the sentiments in silver. So cute!

The colors are awesome - love that textured cardstock!!!

I just kept on crafting in miniature :)

I saw a vellum envelope somewhere in my travels (gosh darn it if I forget right now). So I really wanted to make mini cards that fit in a vellum envelope. Here's a little tutorial…

I started with a 5 x 3.25" piece of vellum.

I dry embossed the vellum for a bit of texture. Then I scored at 1.5" from each side and 0.5" from the bottom.

Then use adhesive to adhere the flaps to one another and create the little envelope. I then took a circle punch to cut a little piece out of the top to make removal of the card easier. 

Here's the little envie...

To make the card, I cut a piece of card stock at 5.5" and 1 ⅞" and scored in the middle. 

I attached the entire envelope to a tag so that it can be attached to a gift. These would make really cute, reusable Christmas tags - you'd just have to replace the card inside the envelope. 

And here are the finished products :)

Hope you enjoyed my blog hop offerings!

Your next stop of the hop is the talented, Debbie Marcinkiewicz
