Joy Clair Stamps "Best Buds" Mini Card Project

I made some fun cards for you to give your BEST BUDS. You can use them as gift cards or just leave them in fun places in their house when you visit so they can find it after you leave. I love to leave little notes for my friends and family. Everyone could use a little something to make them smile. These will do just that, you can't help but smile when you see these little note cards! I used Joy Clair's new stamp set called, "Best Buds" for my project. These little stamps are adorable!

Let's make them together!

1. Cut some card bases from white paper (3 x 6 inch and score at 3 inches). This will make 3x3 inch cards. Then cut 3x3 inch colored papers for your card fronts. (This is a good way to use your scrap papers. Make mini cards! I used red, yellow, green and blue.) Next, cut some 2.5 x 2.5 inch white scraps and stamped them with Memento ink. ( I colored mine with alcohol markers so use the paper and ink to correspond with your coloring choice) These will be the fronts of your cards that you will mount on the colored papers.

2. Now stamp your sentiment on the inside of the cards. There are so many cute ones to choose from. You can make more then 4 cards if you can't choose!!

3. Once you have all your cards stamped on the inside and all your images stamped on your 2.5 x 2.5 inch squares, color your images. Like I stated above, I used alcohol markers. You can use colored pencils, markers, crayons or watercolor.

4. When finished, add the colored image to the colored square and adhere to the font of your card base. The card is finished but I always like to embellish further. I used a corner rounder to round the corners and also added some faux enamel dots for some dimension. If you want to make tiny envelopes, get an envelope maker and make 3x3 envelopes or follow this link for directions for making envelopes without a maker.
