Fast 3 x 3 Cards

I received some presents from some of my co-workers this week. I wanted to thank them for their gifts and kindness for thinking of me. I decided to make 3 x 3 thank you cards for them. We have lockers that we store our things in at work. A regular sized card (5 1/2 x 4 1/4) is too big for me to put into the slots. I decided the 3 x 3 size will work great. Now my only concern is if they will fit because of the ribbon and dimensionals. If not, I will just have to hand them out. No big deal!
Altogether I needed 4 cards. The first two shown below are made using the Upsy Daisy stamp set. I used 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon to add dimension to each of them also. I am pleased with how they turned out. For the real red and basic black card, I also used the modern label punch and the word window punch.

I wanted to try the embossing folders on a couple of them to see how it looked. I really like the Manhattan Flower (rich razzleberry) card. The other card is made with the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder. I really like the embosslit die with the butterflies. It will be available to purchase in January. I also used the large oval and scallop oval punches.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my blog. I hope it gives you the inspiration you need to help you want to create also. It is sooo much fun!! I would love to know what you think of them. Leave me a comment! Please!!

Now go-n-stamp!!

These are really cute. I happen to love the Uppsy Daisy set and those 3 x 3 cards are a real hit.
