Thanksgiving Minis Part 2

Yesterday I showed a mini Thanksgiving card (3"x3") - it inspired a LOT more! Here are four more examples that all make use of leftover bits from this card where I had cut a lattice from the aqua paper with white dots (using a die from Cheery Lynn called "Grateful Lattice").  It seemed such a waste to throw those bits out and I'm glad I didn't.  As you can see I've arranged these "bits" in various ways to form backgrounds or borders for these 4 mini-cards - all of these from ONE cut lattice!

All four of these mini cards also use freebie tag printouts from HOTP.  After printing the tags I stamped various messages on them, and in some cases, added a touch of ribbon before gluing them in place.  The stamp used on this first card (and again on the last one in this set) came from a Melissa Francis stamp set called Holiday Greetings.

Here are the other three cards:
The stamp used here came from a HOTP set called Tiny Words and Images.

This stamp came from JustRite's Antique Autumn Tags One set. The Aqua ink didn't show up very well against the dark background of the tag, so I made it stand out a bit better by tracing around it with a white gel pen.

I LOVE making these little cards!  They are so quick and easy and can so easily be made with leftovers and little bits and pieces I have sitting in my stash!
