Petit Four Cards

estate-saleHappy Tuesday!

I hope your week is off to a good start! I had a fun time this weekend visiting an estate sale in my neighborhood. The pic above are a few of my finds. Love this little ragdoll..I’ll have to make her a new dress though! The embroidered handkerchiefs are silk (gorgeous, and so soft!), love the tarnished spoon (will be perfect for scooping glass glitter!) and the lovely hand mirror. Did you find any treasures this weekend?

petit-four-cards-1I don’t know why, but the fabric I used to make these cards remind me of petit fours. Maybe because its so  soft and delicate, dainty and very springy. So, Petit Four Cards! I remember making petit fours with my mom one year as a little girl. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but they do take a bit of time. My daughter is just the right, patient,  age…may have to try them soon. But, in the meantime, cards instead!

petit-four-cards-2To begin making these cards, I cut down a piece of cardstock and wrapped it in fabric, ribbons and embellishments. I then folded and stamped coordinating cardstock, then adhered the fabric rectangle to the top of the card. A bit of a glitter pen and stickles adds some sparkle. And distressed edges add a bit more contrast.

petit-four-cards-4 The inside of the cards are lined with vintage ledger paper from this very vintage Order Book. Soft and lovely and sweet, just like a petit four. Perfect for a note to a special friend. This little bundle of Petit Four Cards are now available in my Etsy store. You can find them here:

petit-four-cardsWould love to hear any tips you have in making petit fours…thinking that would be a fun little party for Meghan and her friends this summer. 🙂

Have a great day, and happy creating!!
