Mini-Card

Mini-Card by judkajudy

I'm entering this card in two challenges this week.  First:


This week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to make a card no larger than 4"x4". This little card is 3"x5" and I think the smaller size is just right for the little Santa birdies from Penny Black's Winter Wonderland set. The other images are from Hero Arts' Merriest Wishes clear set. That swirly line is going to be quite useful as a branch, a hill, or just a place to hang onto for critters!


I am also entering this card in the "Anything Goes" challenge at Simply Less is More.  You can find out how their challenges work by going here.


I love working with a smaller space than the usual A2 card. My friend Donna Mikasa is the queen of the mini-card and has often inspired me to consider using a smaller format. The smaller area really showcases the image!

There's a 90 Minute Scramble over at the Hero Arts blog this afternoon at 1PM Central time. It's always a fun time and you're invited!


Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Judy,
Welcome to "Less is More". We really need to see reference to our challenge in your post and a link back to our blog!
This is a superb card.
Thanks so much for joining us and if you could also remove the Word Verification option from your blog it would make commenting much easier for us.
