Fox & Friends Mini Card Set

Mini 3x3 Card Set and Box With Fox & Friends Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

This adorable set of 3x3 Mini Cards can be used in a variety of ways or would also make a cute gift for a busy Mom. A few clever uses might include:
  • Gift cards for children's birthday gifts
  • Children's thank you cards
  • Quick notes to tuck in children's lunches
  • Special reward card for an accomplishment
I'm sure you can imagine even more uses for these mini cards featuring the Fox & Friends stamp set. Although I adore that cute monkey, all of the animal friends are just as charming and I couldn't resist creating a set of cards with them.

Color coordinated set of animal cards for children

Each animal image is color coordinated with the background piece which was embossed using the Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates and trimmed with a scallop border.

Simple dry embossing and paper-piercing add charm to mini cards

The images were simply stamped on card stock and cropped with a circle punch. For added interest and texture, I paper-pierced following the circle border.

A mini set of cards needs a holder or box, so I created a very simple open box and embellished it with a few coordinating details. The die-cut frame was created using the Lots of Tags Sizzlits Die Set - a must have set of tags you will use over and over again.

Embellished Box for Mini Handmade Childrens Cards

The box is roughly 3-1/4" x 2" and is just the right size to hold all seven mini cards plus seven mini envelopes. It makes a darling display and the cards are ready to use - simply write the appropriate message inside.
