Let's use the Leftovers - Card #5 - Retiring 2014-2016 In-Colours


Card #5  in my Series "Let's use the Leftovers". 

Today we have little 3" x 3" cards in each of the 5  2014-2016 In-Colours with a little box for them to go into.

Oh they are so cute...

So today I used cardstock in each of the 5 colours to make tiny card.
Too small to go into the mail...but perfect to give maybe with a wee gift or just to say Thank You.

I used some scraps of Whisper White for Mat 1
Scraps of 2014-2016 Designer Series Paper (DSP) in each Colour for Mat 2.
Some scrap of Whisper White for my Stamping.

I used the "Thank you" from Crazy About You Stamp Set...one of my Favourites...had you noticed?! :-)
The small flowers are from the Petite Petals Stamp Set with the matching Punch.
The larger flower is from the Flower Shop Stamp Set which Coordinates with the Pansy Punch.


For the Base of the Box I picked one of the colours from the 2014-2016 In-Colours cardstock...in this case Tangelo Twist.
For the Lid of the Box...I used Whisper White cardstock...and stamped it in all the 5 colours with one of the small flowers from Petite Petals Stamp Set...I also put a small square of the matching DSP on the inside of the Lid.

For the Base of the Box... I used a square of Tangelo Twist cardstock measuring 7"1/8 x 7"1/8
For the Lid of the Box...I used a square of Whisper White cardstock measuring 7"2/8 x 7"2/8

To be honest with you...it's a bit snug! Envelopes a little squashed!!!

So...I suggest you increase your measurements by 1/8" on both pieces of cardstock.

I hope you like them...tiny...but very Cute :-)
