Good morning blog friends! Although my favorite card is 5 1/2″ by 7″ sometimes, it is absolutely delightful to make a smaller profile card. Of course it becomes a ‘no-brainer’ when the card is easy ;-). Well that’s what I have for you today. I’m using one of the new decorative profile dies that lends itself very well to making small (to me) shaped card. Using Spellbinders™ Timeless Rectangles I simply cut with a fold at the top so that I have a hinge. Next I cut the right sized rectangle to fit from Spellbinders™ 5×7 Matting Basics B and while still in the die stamped with a new JustRite Papercrafts background stamp – Antique Damask Background. To set the sentiment (For All You Do Vintage Labels Three) apart from the background I added a little flourish element from Spellbinders™ Fleur de Lis Accents and popped the sweet rounded tag from Spellbinders™ Framed Tags One on top. The final card is 4″ wide by 6″ tall. Sweet and easy :-)
Since this is a smaller sized card, I downsized my ribbon and went with 1/4″ silk ribbon by May Arts – I love the drape and a little multi-loop bow tied on the Becca’s Bow Maker makes the perfect sized embellishment. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my wide ribbon but I have fallen in love with this smaller size.
