A Little Something


The Mod Squad challenge this week is "Marvelous Minis." That means we're going to make a 3x3 or 2.5x3.5 mini card. My card is a 3x3 that I made to go along with a little gift. I made a color coordinated envelope that you can see to the left of the card. The image is Cocoa's gift from SNSS, and I colored him with Copics to match the pretty piece of flocked dsp. I accented the pink color with chocolate cardstock, and added a piece of matching ribbon on one corner. The sentiment is from SU! and I hand-cut the banner. These little cards are great to keep on hand for those unexpected occasions when you need a quick gift for a special occasion. They're also a wonderful way to use those precious snippets of paper you can't bear to throw away!

Speaking of snippets, I'm also going to share this over at the Snippets Playground #131 since I used snippets to make the card and mini envelope!

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!
