Mini make and take

Happy Easter - don't eat too much chocolate today! As usual I have completely failed to make any Easter papercraft projects but never mind... this is the card we made at my Mini Catalogue launch – and again at a Shoebox Swap I held for my downlines recently. I love the Cherry Cobbler against the Very Vanilla – for a more striking effect, you could go for Real Red against Whisper White but this is much gentler for a soft image such as the butterfly from Nature Walk.

We stamped the words and the butterfly first and then positioned the Very Vanilla cardstock within the embossing folder. It’s much easier to do it this way round than to emboss first! 

With a small piece of card like this (the full card is 9cm square) you have lots of options for moving it around within the embossing folder. This version is "debossed" but you can have the flowers raised quite easily by turning the cardstock 90ยบ.

Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
