Cards in Miniature

I made a few 'miniature cards' over the weekend - each of these is just 3"x3" - quick, easy and a great way to use up some scraps and leftovers:

# Simon Says ~ Martine's sketch
# Quixotic Paperie ~ Challenge #33 ~ Make it Miniature

I used:  MME Meadowlark collection, a smidgen of Glitz Designs 'Distressed Couture' paper (the polka dot one) and Cuttlebug 'Daisy Pattern' EF, ribbon

I also made a couple of  Christmas giftcards while I had the Cuttlebug on the desk:

# Polka Doodle ~ Week 29 ~ Christmas in July
# Basic Grey Challenges ~ Week 25 ~ Stitching

I used:Basic Grey/K&Co 'Motifica' 6x6 paper pad (which tells you just how long it's been in my stash!)   The stitching is a bit hard to see but it's in a circle, kind of like a wreath.  I also used: Cuttlebug 'Holly Ribbons' EF, Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Labels Three', and some tiny diecut tags (Leone gave me a heap of these last year, thank you.) I made my own hat pin embies by cutting the 'loop' off the back of some Christmas buttons that I was sent in a RAK, and gluing to the top of the pin.  For the Santa pin, I added a bit of Heidi Swapp ribbon.
