I was participating in a ATC or Artist Trading Card Swap with my upline's group. Trading Cards are smaller cards that can stand alone, or be taken home and added to a larger card. It is fun to create the mini cards as you really have to stretch and think what will look good and work on a smaller scale. ATC cards are 2.5 x3.5. There are several sites with cutting templates to get 10 card bases out per page of 8.5x11, but this is the page I normally use for reference.
I had so much fun designing this little Owl, but when I made the first, I did not think about how many eyeballs it takes to make 20+ Owls! Yikes! Luckily my good friend and downline was willing to help me assemble my little creations.
