Hello and welcome to my blog!  Hope you are having a good day and are taking a little time for yourself!

On my previous post “Delightful Daisy” I created a set of card using the Daisy Delight Bundle from Stampin-up© and as usual had some bits and pieces that were too pretty to toss.  So I created some mini cards (3″ x 3″).  These are great as gift cards, lunch box notes or to just give to a friend or co-worker.

My Process and Materials:  (Remember all the links for products are at the end of the blog post.!)

Cut the following:

• 3″x 6″ out of Kraft (80lb) card stock and fold in half to form the base

• 2″ x 3″ out of pattern papers.  I used designer paper by Stampin-up©

• 1/2″ x 3″ strip of “calypso coral” or coordinating card stock

• 3″ in diameter circle

• 2 cut outs from the daisy flower punch in “daffodil delight” card stock.  I stamped the flower then used the coordinating punch to cut out the flower.

For the center of the flower I used a yellow button that coordinates with the rest of my materials.

Assembling this little cards was quite simple.  I used double-sided tape adhesive to glue the paper and Ranger® Glossy Accents to glue the button.

Decide how you want the card to open then center the pattern paper to the base and then the strip of card stock to the pattern paper.  Glued the flower together by offsetting the two cuts, this give the effect of a fuller flower.

Glue the button to the center of the flower then with foam tape attached the flower to the circle.  The foam tape gives the flower a little touch of dimension.

This is  a fun little project and a great way to use your odd and ends.  I hope you give it a try and give these cuties so someone in your life.  I do not recommend sending them by mail due to their unusual size and it would, believe or not, cost more than a regular size card.

Take care and always take time to nourish your creative soul!

"Behind every great crafter...Is a huge pile of craft supplies" -JoAnn   Cheeky but true! I love craft supplies as much if not more than trashy paranormal romance novels. I felt it was time to get down to business and actually use all these craft supplies and make pretty things. Would I be successful? Who knows! But now one will be able to accuse me of not giving it all I got. Which is the reason I started this blog, to share my crafting adventures (or most likely mistakes) with the Internet.   Sad but hey I don't have much of a social life and my husband isn't very interested in hearing about crafts! He's much more interested on how the Patriots or Red Sox are doing than listening to me talk about stamps, cardstock and die cutting.   Paper crafting as you will see is my first crafting passion but as any decent crafter would tell you is impossible not to dabble on all other kind of crafting experiments, hence the name wondering mindfield. So look around and hopefully I will inspire you to try something new, make some "creative" mistakes and relax while creating something "pretty." Thank you for visiting and come back soon!
