I have been creating 3×3 tags for several months now and showing them on my blog as I create a new design.  A few weeks ago I completed a challenge to take a 3×3 card and convert it to a full size card.  I used this idea as a Stamp Club project earlier this month.  So I had a thought that I would show each 3×3 card and a matching full sized card going forward.

This week I made a 3×3 card using the new Bouquet Bunch stamp set that will be in the Stampin’ Up! Summer Mini Catalog that begins on May 1st. CLICK here to see my original 3×3.

When I saw this weeks Stamping 411 challenge I knew exactly what I was going to do to convert this 3×3 card to a full size card. This sketch was perfect for what I wanted to do.  So I took my 3×3 and created my new full card using the 411 sketch.

What do you think?  Didn’t it work out perfectly.

I took the 3×3 and added it to a Basic Grey card base.

I wrapped a piece of the Crushed Curry Polka Dot ribbon around the bottom.  The ribbon is held on with the Linen Thread that is tied through the button.  The button is from the Button Latte Designer Button set.  I stamped another little bird on a piece of Whisper White and punched it with the Jewelry Tag punch – it was added underneath the button so it hangs out from behind.
