Card of the week #2

Hello! I’m back again with my card of the week. I wanted to try something cute and special so I made this mini-greeting card. Well, it’s more of a mini-love note. I made this card using the adorable Lawn Fawn stamps, Kraft paper, and one of my favorite paper stacks! About a year or two ago I found a How-Tuesday video on the Etsy blog, on how to make a cute mini-book, and that’s where I learned how to make this particular flip book—only I decorated it myself instead printing out their template. To learn how to make the mini-book, click here to watch their super cute video.
I had a lot of fun making this mini-card. I always like making really small cards because I think they look so cute. The Lawn Fawn stamps work really well when making tiny cards, as you can see from the images.  




…and, here is the card completely open. This card was made using a standard size card stock: 8” x 11.5”.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this mini-love note greeting card.

    1. Don't these stamps just make it so cute? I don't think it would have came out that cute if I'd made it with different stamps.
