Mini Bright

This morning, I woke up with the flu, which is pretty awful. Aside from feeling generally achy, miserable and tired, my head feels like it's a bit stuffed with cotton and it's hard to focus and think. So, my post today is very brief and probably not very witty.

Luckily, before I got sick, I had made a couple of mini cards (3x3") that can go in a lunchbox or backpack. So I have something to post. The mini cards are meant to just brighten someone's day - and a light-bulb seems like a really appropriate image there.

The lightbulb is a cute little digital stamp from Meljen Designs - Little Light Bulb. Melissa currently has an awesome sale going on, where everything in store is 50% off. Just add it to the card, and you'll see the discount. And there's also a section with a few free stamps. Pretty cool. :D

After printing out the lightbulb, I trimmed around it and rounded the edges with my corner rounder. I colored the image with Copics, keeping it very simple.

For the card base, I cut and scored a piece of 6x3" cardstock in half, creating a 3 by 3" card. I glued a bit of patterned paper to the side and adhered the light-bulb panel with foam tape.

And that's it. I'm going to go lay down and rest now.
