For today’s project, I want to share two 3″x3″ cards I made in green and red. Why have I paired these together? Just because they are both green and red. It’s that simple. While one is specifically a holiday card, the other is not. Just so happens that both are green and red. Did I mention that both are green and red?
In the process of designing standard 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ cards, we often forget that 3″ x 3″ cards are both adorable (they are totally adorable) and easy to design. There’s not a lot of space to balance out and fill.
Here’s how I made each of these cards:
Thank You. These cherries are a stamp in Button Buddies. With my Stampin’ Write Markers, I brushed Cherry Cobbler (makes sense, right?) onto the cherry fruit and Garden Green (also makes sense) onto the stems and leaves. Immediately after stamping the cherries, I added cherry-scented embossing powder – basically to make it smell pretty. I stamped the sentiment with Itty Bitty Banners and cropped it out with my Bitty Banners framelits. I offset the sentiment and let it hang over the edge of the popped-up base.

Ornament. To the face of a Gumball Green 3″ x 3″ card, I added a small strip of Be of Good Cheer DSP. I stamped the Delightful Decorations ornament in Cherry Cobbler and punched it out with the Ornament punch. I added a basic jewel rhinestone to the center and popped the ornament up with a dimensional. Easy for a quick note or a package tag.
