Thank You Mini Square Cards

It has been long since my last post. I came back from Japan a week ago and adjusting to GMT-4 from GMT+9 has been harder this year.
Anyhow, we had a great trip and I came back full of ideas and memories.
Today's project is very simple, a small 2.75 x 2.75 inch mini cards, with a whimsical, cute feel, that can be given as gifts in a set or as thank you notes by themselves.

I used Neenah Solar White cardstock for the base, and embossed the sentiment, the wand and the stars using the Fairy Wishes Stamp Set from Oak Tree Stamps, Versamark Ink and Silver and Gold Embossing Powder.

For the backing of the butterfly/fairy wings, I used Neenah Creative Collection Metallics in Chalice Silver for the Silver embossed. For the gold embossed, I used a Champagne color specialty cardstock sold here in Chile, which has embossed butterflies, but you can always use the King's Gold Neenah that comes in the pack also.

I packed them in sets of 4 to give them as gifts for a friend using a pink baker's twine (she loves pink)

I really hope you like it and give it a try, and if you like it, please comment and subscribe.
