I'm so happy with my mini cards I made today... They are only 2.95"x2.95". They are made with papers from my favourite paper stack (see image below) and my handcarved stamps. The inside and outside are stitched together with the sewingmachine. I really like to combine all those different patterns and colours together.

The little envelopes are also handmade and measure 3.35"x3.35" (hope the postman doesn't lose them).

I love the stiching around the edges and the contrasting paper inside and out!
They are really great!

Hi, thank you all for your great comments. I don't know if I may say this here, but packages with all the materials needed to make these cards yourself are available on my website..... you may even choose your paper designs yourself if you want

those are adorable!  Grin  is that just regular paper? and the sewing machine needle went through okay without it ripping? i'll have to try that, it looks awesome!

You are my sweetest downfall. I loved you first, I loved you first. Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth.

Yes, it's just regular paper. No problem at all...

And last week I made this one (see my website for more info). I totally love the colours....

Sooooo stinkin' cute! That's a lot of work to put into such a tiny, adorable card! That's probably why I like them - they're like finely made doll house pieces.
