Card Oopsie

I didn't have anything scheduled to post yesterday or for today, 
so I thought I'd share with you my card oopsie.
This is the tiniest card I've ever made, but it wasn't on purpose.


Look! It fits in the palm of my hand.


It measures a little over an inch and a half when folded for mailing. 


And then I smudged the sentiment, so I'm pretty sure this little oopsie is staying with me in my craft room.

I used my Cricut and Lori Whitlock's All Occasion Box Cards.
I didn't resize the file. Just cut it out how it put it on my virtual mat in Design Space.
Why wouldn't they just bring in the file the correct size?


Logically, I should have resized it larger.
But on my computer it looked good. LOL
There are measurements in the handbook, but I don't know what I'm suppose to do with that information. 

Oh well. It's a teeny weeny Get Well card that turned out cute even though it's way too small.

Enjoy your weekend!

Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Party #174 Anything but a Card (optional theme: treat containers)

Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Party 

#174 Anything but a Card

Optional Theme: Treat Containers


My Design Team Project



I love these! They are called Bag in a Box, and the tutorial has been around for a few years. I've made them before, but completely forgot about them. If you would like to watch a YouTube tutorial, HERE is the one I followed. 

You'll need the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.
Basically you start off with 6" x 6" double sided cardstock.
Place paper edge at 1 3/8", punch and score. 
Slide paper down to 4", punch and score.
Then turn it to the other 3 sides lining up the score lines with the guide, punch and score.
Round your corners.
On the 2 sides with the larger triangle, you'll cut down both sides of that to the score line. This allows you to fold those sides.
It's so cute!!

I used Close To My Heart cardstock and sponged all the fold lines with ink.
Tiny flower punch
Studio G gems
Simon Says Stamp stitched banner dies
