Mini Note Cards by Virginia


Playing with alcohol inks is one of Virginia Lu's favorite pastimes!  For today's feature Virginia created a pair of mini notecards measuring 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" and inked them with beautiful vibrant colors.  She then topped them off with lovely diecut butterflies decorated with sequins.  

Once she was done with her inking, Virginia turned to her SRM Sticker stash and found that SRM's new Sticker Stitches were the perfect touch.  
What a delicious pair of cards. 



Who knew that stickers and inking are such perfect companions?  Virginia Lu, that's who!
