Mini Mehndi's

I have two more mini cards today--these are sized to fit the Seed Packet Die, 2 1/2" by 3 1/2".  These cards are for the CAS-ual Friday  challenge #20 to make a mini card, and also for the CR84FN #38 color challenge of bright pink, black and grey.  I used PTI Hibiscus Burst cardstock and black and grey inks.  I was inspired by this card set.




I used the Mehndi Medallion stamp in Grey, 'thank' and 'Love' in black, and wonderful words 'you' cut out of Hibiscus Burst cardstock.  So far, I am finding things in my stamping stash to work with the Wonderful Words dies, but I love those dies so much, I will probably end up buying them their own stamp set at some point.

I thought these cards would look cute inside a mini envelope made out of vellum, and made a sticker to keep the envelope closed.  To make the sticker, I used a PTI adhesive sheet cut with a Flower Fusion die and stamped with one of the smaller Mehndi stamps in Versa Color Rose Red, which is my best ink match to Hibiscus Burst.



Thanks for Visiting
