Mini crafting,, loads of fun:0)

Good morning to you my fine and crafty friends:0)
I hope you are having a good one? Day that is!!
Over at the Craft Barn  we have been making mini projects and my team mates have made some beautiful examples, if you have a minute check it out :0)

Here is my mini offering
A set of small cards in a box,  luckily I had some envelopes to start but it's fairly easy to make them yourself. I took the envelopes as a starter for the size of the cards.

Using an A4 card I scored and folded to make a box to fit, The cards measure 10.5 cm x 6cm, so really quite small, good for tiny thankyou's or small invites for coffee perhaps.
I stamped, inked and scored the piece of stampbord on the outside of the box. I used the peice of stampbord to echo the design on the cards, by cutting a template the same size to ink and stamp through.

Here is my hand under the box, I hope that gives and idea how small these are.
Thank you for dropping in, I hope you like my cards! Have fun, Gay x

I used
Hero Arts cling stamp Two Vine Scrolls
Crafty Individuals CI 214 Postcard with Script
Frantage Aged Gold EP
Distress inks

This post is scheduled as I'm off on my jollies tee hee, will tell you all about it when I get back, be good  and if you can't, be careful! ;D Gay xx
Hope it looks like this where I'm going :0)
