Mini Christmas Cards

I've been working on a few different creations lately. I wanted to make a set number of things before I actually added anything to Etsy, so I've been working at it for a couple of weeks.  First up is a set of 6 mini Christmas cards, which could also easily be gift tags for gifts. Each card comes with a mini envelope. 

Complete Set

Closeup with Envelopes


Paper: Plain white cardstock for card base and envelopes, Christmas patterned paper from a friend
Embellishments: Glittered snowflakes from Michaels, Buttons from a friend, Ribbon also from a friend (can get the same ribbon from Michaels though)
Adhesives: Score Tape (Just recently got this and LOOOOOVE it.... it works wonderfully!), and therm-o-web, medium sized zots (clear adhesive dots)

P.S. Has anyone had problems with the new Image Uploader gadget? I noticed that image uploads will be down for a couple of hours today. I hope they fix whatever is up with it.

I also created an elegant "Congratulations" card that could really be used for multiple different occasions. I didn't make it specific for that exact reason. My inspiration for this card actually came from a set of Candelabra rub-ons.


You may notice the embellishment in the top left corner. It started out as a candelabra, but as I accidentally ripped off the bottom, I made it into a chandelier. :)

Paper: Plain black cardstock, Patterned paper from a set I bought a while ago at Walmart, but can no longer recall the brand
Embellishments: Ribbon from Michaels, Gems and Candelabra/Chandelier from Michaels dollar aisle
Digi Images: Border from Birds Blog, Sentiment freehand

Hope that you are all having a glorious week... I am finally starting to feel better (PTL)!!!

I have a couple of prayer requests for you all. My husband and I are assistant pastors at a local church and one of our congregation had a stroke on Monday. He seems to be recovering, but please keep him in your prayers. Also, the head of our fellowship is having some very serious health problems. Only a miracle will bring him back to health, so please also keep him in your prayers!

God Bless!


  1. Oh wow. I hadn't heard about that. Definitely praying for both of them.

    Cute cards!

  2. The cards are nice...I can't wait to see your etsy shop. Praying it goes well.

    Will be in prayer for the many needs that are so evident in every church. We truly need to see a breakthrough and for the Lord to come on the scene for those we love.

  3. Love those mini notecards! Isn't that size fun? I love 3x3s, but I don't love making mini envelopes! Did you have to make yours or did you find them somewhere (and if you did, please share the details!)?

    The congratulations card is gorgeous! So elegant. And I love how you turned the candelabra into a chandelier! Clever girl! :o)

  4. I created my own template for the mini card envelopes. I shall cut another one out and send it to you :)
