Mini cards

I'm always looking around for cute mini cards to add to presents or flowers (yup.. most of the time I just BUY these instead of making them.....). Since I'm having lots of leftover cardstock pieces, I decided to create some personal mini-cards out of this for my stash...... (and believe me.. my cards stash is HUGE... sometimes I just don't know what to do with these anymore.. hehe... I do try to send them out once in a while.. but the rest is sitting in my drawer.. such a pitty)

Sooooo.....I started with this little one... totally made out of small strips of leftover patterned paper (Creative Imaginations).....
Added a Prima flower, a jewel, a cardstock circle and some puffy paint.... and voila!
I think orange is going to be my 2nd favorite color besides pink.. haha... I find myself using this color more and more these past months!!!

Have a fun weekend and thanks again for your sweet comments!

XOXO
Nancy

Wat een superleuk kaartje!
En een heel goed idee om zo de restjes te verwerken ;-) want daar hebben we denk ik allemaal behoorlijk veel van, haha.
En ga vooral door met roze en oranje kaarten ;-) want ik vind dat ook heerlijke vrolijke kleuren.
Groetjes, Sandra

Wauw, alweer zo'n leuke kaart! Het lijkt in je stukje net of je de kaart binnen mum van tijd af had, terwijl de kaart eruitziet alsof er uren tijd in zitten:)

This card is darling... great use of scraps! I need to start doing that, as my scrap bin is getting out of control! I too love the orange!
