thank you mini-cards by Lauren Bergold

for someone who does not scrapbook, as such, i have bought A LOT of journaling tags; i use them quite often in card-making! these maya road kraft ones were instant favorites for their variety of designs and utterly practical size. at 3x3" they would hold just enough journaling on a layout, or they could be the base of some super-fun mini thank you cards! like this:
crowns are absolutely always fun, imo; here i've colored the miniature maya road chipboard ones with a silver inkpad, embossed them with my cuttlebug, and used them as a whimsical embellishment to diecut 3-part hearts in which i have mixed and matched scraps of patterned papers from the october pixie dust paperie kit. offcuts of the kit's cardstock from other projects formed my 3.25" cardbases, and all i needed to complete the set were a few staples, some dymo-label sentiments, and lots of wonky machine stitching for texture...and to hold everything securely on my cards!

i think i will be making more sets like this in future, as they are a brilliant way to "clean up" my scraps...and it's always useful to have some little thank you notes on hand, isn't it?! :)
