Quickie Mini Monday -- 4 mini cards in a bag

Quickie Mini Mondays feature a 10 minute-or-less project -- something fast, fun and easy to reproduce and mass produce.



Hi everyone,

I often joke with Gen that I have a hard time coming up with quick and easy projects. But when I saw Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge, this one came to me like a light bulb. I love this combination of colors:


I recently purchase the Blossom Party Originals Die for my Big Shot machine which has 5 flower elements on it. Perfect! I went with that and the fact that I hadn't used my glassine envelopes purchased a while back. Here's what I came up with -- a gift that keeps on giving...

It's a bag that you can offer to a cardmaker containing 4 mini birthday cards. And because you can cut multiple layers of cardstock in one swoop, I completed this project in no time at all.

I obviously kept the cards very simple with the same layered flower on top over a piece of ribbon and a sentiment stamped with Going Gray Classic Ink. Each card measures 4" X 4".



Have a nice stampin' day! CeeCee
