Mini Thank You Card

Here is a mini thank you card I put together over this past weekend. The card is the perfect size to hold two business cards and fits in the small envelope to hand out as little thank you's.

The idea for this project came from Patty Bennett when she found a way to use the Scallop Envelope Die and make it larger so it fits a gift card for holiday gift giving. I think she shared this idea on her blog many, many years ago. You take a piece of Designer Series Paper cut it at 6" x 6" then fold in half with the fold on the bottom of the third scallop you run through your Big Shot and you have an extended Scallop Envelope. You can burnish some of the extra middle folds with your bone folder. Here is the Scallop Envelope die:

Scallop Envelope Stampin' Up! Bigz Die - by Stampin' Up!

The Designer Series Paper in this project is Beau Chateau and is so pretty. It is in the current Idea Book Catalog and will retire on May 31st - one month early. Stampin' Up! announced some changes in our catalogs last week at Leadership. I am really excited for the changes. We will have a new 'big' book on June 1st and now only two Mini catalogs throughout the year one Holiday and one Spring - both good for 6 months.

I will be making some more of these to carry around with me and pass out during Sale-a-bration which starts tomorrow January 24th. Check back tomorrow for all the details. I'll be showing another project using the Scallop Envelope die later this week.

Happy Stampin',
