Little Notecards

Hi Everyone,
Things have finally slowed down a little around here. All of my guests have gone home and now it is just me and my craft room until the next round of guests arrive in two weeks. It is always nice to have family and friends around and I miss all the laughter and the companionship but it is also nice to have a little quiet space for just me and my husband.......
For some reason, I have been wanting to make my cards in little miniature sizes lately instead of the standard size cards. I guess it could be the challenge of how to decorate such a small space. I also love that I can attach them to gift bags and use them as tags instead. Whatever reason, I decided to go with a mini size for these cards, they measure 3.5"X 4.25".  I used a vintage "Simplicity" pattern for the little girls images and added some martha stewart doilies, distress ink, and ribbon.
I fell in love with these vintage images when I saw them. I knew I had to use them on a card.

I used lots of the same types of pattern paper on all of the cards and just varied the placement up a little bit to make each card unique.

Pattern paper is from "Melissa Frances", "Girl's Paperie", and "My Mind's Eye".


  1. The vintage style really suits you. These are adorable!

  2. Ohh these are so sweet. I love them. Did you use the images of the little girls from a real pattern?

  3. Oh how pretty! Love the idea of the smaller size!!

  4. No I didn't Tracy. I found the free vintage images on the internet. Then I printed them out on my printer and cut them out.
