A mini Album card - November Kit of the Month

 “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a
listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all
of which have the potential to turn a life around.” 
― Leo Buscaglia

A mini card!  This is kind of what I had in mind  but not yet .. so back to the scrapboard I go ... but  it is still pretty and  unique in its only way .... a  little mini card that  is a wonderful gift full of hidden pockets and little treasures for the receiver. This was created using the  November Kit of the month and  bits and pieces  left over from the October kit  ....  keep your  kit  goodies  close ... you can  always  mix and match them !! 

These are the folds  from the inside. There is no right and wrong here ... there are simply 2  cardstock 12 x12 sheets  cut in different dimensions and scored at 1/2"and  attached to a 51/2 "x 51/2" base . The  base is then adhered to a 6x6 sheet of paper. 

The  above has : 4 1/2x6, 3 1/2x5, 5x5, 5 1/2x5 1/2, and 5 1/2x 4 
below cardstock was cut : 2 - 5 1/2x5 1/2 and 2- 6x5 

The  measurements can be  your own ..   but  I find starting with a  5.5x5.5 base  always works best  for a  6x6 mini  ...
