Tiny Note Cards

This is the other post that was supposed to go up over the weekend. Let's see if I got that scheduled post thing right this time. : )

I had such fun making these. I received a little card tucked into a gift bag and that is where I got the idea for this fold. The final size of these is 3x3, a tri-fold. I used Kraft CS. After folding I used the SU! scalloped border punch on the front edge. Martha Stewart Hydrangea pop-up punch was used for the flowers. I punched several out completely from scrap paper and used them for masks so I could emboss the background. Used part of the SU! French Flair BG stamp, stamped with Versamark and embossed with clear EP. Then I colored the flowers with chalk inks, and added Spica glitter pen to the edges of the petals. Also inked the surface under the top layer to coordinate with the flower petals. I made a set of eight, two in each color.
