Papillon Potpourri 3x3 Cards

Greetings, Stampers! I recently made a batch of 3x3 cards to include with customer orders, and I thought you might like to see them. I thought they came out kind of cute, thanks to some Twitterpated Designer Series Paper, the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set, and a few coordinating punches.

Don't these punches layer up adorably? The patterns in Papillon Potpourri are so versatile, they seem to coordinate well with nearly any designer paper.

I used a couple of retired products (such as Pear Pizzazz Ink and Cardstock) as I was giving these cards as gifts. However, you could easily use any Stampin' Up colors and scraps of designer paper that you have to re-create these projects. 

I stamped the images onto the envelopes, also, for a totally coordinated look. The envelopes are Stampin' Up Square Envelopes which measure 3 1/8" x 3 1/8", which will hold your 3x3 cards perfectly. However, you are going to have to hand deliver these or put them inside something larger to mail them as USPS will not deliver 3x3 cards. They are too little and cute!

Love your cards! I just used the striped pattern from the Twitterpated dsp pack and wanted to "pear" it with a green. No more Pear Pizzazz left in my stash! So, I used Certainly Celery and it worked okay.

The USPS needs to think with more vision - these vehicles should be autonomous and deliver the mail without people. lite blue At a minimum the customer would find scans during mailing and when item was delivered or attempted delivery.
