Quixotic Challenges : Miniature!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  This week's Quixotic Challenge has been chosen by Kim C who is challenging us to make Miniature cards - small cards or notecards no bigger then 3 inches.

This was quite a challenge, as my usual cards are a lot bigger .. just shy of 6 inch square!!  However, after pondering for a moment, I suddenly had an "a-ha" moment and knew the PERFECT stamps to use ... the brand new Whimsy Stamps Birthday Letter Seals (available HERE from Whimsy Stamps, or if you're in the UK/Europe you can buy them from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie HERE).

As you can see, this fabulous stamp set comprises 3 circular stamps and 6 sentiment stamps. I chose to use the 'birthday wishes' circular stamp and stamped this using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I then used my Woodware Stamp Positioner to add the "time to celebrate" sentiment in the middle.  As this card was so small, I was able to use up some of my scraps from my Cosmo Cricket DeLovely 6x6 paper pad.

Supplies used available to buy from Quxotic Paperie:

Do pop on over to the Quixotic Challenge blog and have a look at the gorgeous miniatures the rest of the DT have made!
