The challenge over the weekend at Caardvarks was to do these micro mini cards, anything 2.5 x 3.5 inches or smaller. So I made a couple that are both 2.5 x 3.5.
This first one uses a slide mount (Thanks Rose Ann! I finally used one.)covered with Stampin' Up's retired Pool Party designer paper. A few rhinestones were glued on to finish the slide. Inside, I colored this darling turtle from Silly Sealife using Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. The sentiment is by Verve Visual (Versafine black) and the ribbon American Crafts. Blue paper also Pool Party. White: Papertrey Ink. Corner rounder.
I decided to do two very differently styled cards. This second one started with the chipboard heart by Basic Grey, covered in Cosmo Cricket. After sanding off the edges, I sponged them with Close to Cocoa. All papers are Cosmo Cricket: Gretel line. Sentiment and card base on SU! very vanilla. I used my paper piercer to poke the holes for my pewter brads, and the cropodile for the large pewter eyelet. Sentiment by Papertrey Ink (Paper Tray) stamped in Versamagic Jumbo Java, which I molded to follow the curve of the heart. I used the corner rounder with the guard removed to make the scalloped edge. And the ribbon is Martha Stewart's piped nylon in 3/16 cloud.
