Mini Christmas Tree CardMini Christmas Tree Card 

Mini Christmas Tree Card is a 3″ x 3″ greeting card made from Stampin’ Up! products. This little card has all of the qualities of a full-size card in a tiny little package! I realized that the trees from the Festive Post stamp set coordinate with the trees in the Trimming the Town designer paper, and I set out to make the card. 3″ x 3″ cards are cute, quick and fun to make – you can crank out several to give as a gift, hand to service providers, or use as gift tags and enclosures. I enjoy making these miniature eye-catching cards, and people are always thrilled to receive them.
