Monday Hop with EAD Designs



Welcome to the Monday Hop with EAD Designs!  I'm having so much fun being a guest designer this month!  You should have arrived here from the talented Stephanie!  If you just popped on over to see me, then you should head over to EAD's blog to begin.  You don't want to miss a thing today!  Be sure to leave a comment at each stop to be eligible to win a prize!

For my project today, I made some quick and easy 3 1/4" cards.  These are great to have on hand, and the EAD Designs Holiday Cubes Vinyl made them a snap to make!  The set comes with 6 rub-on images that are actually designed to fit on 2 1/2" wooden cubes.  However, I discovered that they work great for mini cards too!  I used the Winter style, but they have them for many occasions!


These two cards are made with 3 1/4" x 6 1/2" blue cardstock, scored at 3 1/4".  My patterned paper base is cut at a 3" square and stamped with the border and sentiments from My Creative Time's Small Talk stamp set.  The snowman and snowflake are the EAD Designs rub-ons, in brown.


This card is the same size as the others, but I used a 3" brown square under a 2 3/4" patterned square.  The "Let it Snow" sentiment is another rub-on, from the same set.  I made coordinating envelopes with my Walk in My Garden Cricut cartridge, sizing them at 3 1/4".
