Just checking…pretty quiet out there lately…

I’ve been trying to use the “leftover” patterned paper from various Christmas projects for at least a few of my remaining required cards but most of the cards I make these days don’t use as much patterned paper as they used to.  Something to try to remember next time I place an online order…I think my card-making style is shifting again.

Anyway, just to get the mojo going, I made a few 3X3 cards (a fave technique of mine when I don’t feel creative – make a tiny card or a tag – some smaller scale paper craft as there’s less pressure to fill that space!) to go with some “just a thought” gifts I’ve prepared.

I made three of these – the stocking is a small Anna Wight stamp from the “Her Favorite Things” cling set.  Amazing how few stocking stamps I have (and I’m DESPERATE for a cute Santa that’s easy to paper piece or fussy cut).

I coloured the image with copics and fussy cut it.  It’s pop dotted (is that a verb?) onto the card so even though it’s a tiny card, it does have some dimension.

Now to take the plunge and crank out a few “full size” cards!
