little itty-bitty cards

Last night I was online and thinking of some of my goals for 2012.
One of them is to be in either Papercrafts or CARDS magazine.
I love how Northridge Media puts a long list of submissions on their website.
I "liked" their Facebook page so I see them there, as well.

Right now they have several calls and one of them includes "mini-cards."
It's the December 2012 issue. Check it out...

We are currently looking for cards that fit the following topics for the December 2012 Issue:
  • Christmas
  • Christmas Gift Card Holders
  • Christmas Tags
  • Envelopes
  • Glitter
  • Mini Cards
  • New Years
  • Punches
  • Rub Ons
  • Thinking of You
  • Style Challenge - Colors: Aqua, Green, Red / Element: Wreaths
They also give you a sketch to use and make a submission with.

I have a couple "mini-cards" I made for classes in the last year. Here they are:

This is great for just a few small scraps. It's half of a regular sized card....

This one has one of my favorite pieces of papers from My Mind's Eye and a punched hole with a peek-a-boo sentiment:

I make the envelopes for this size, using my Martha Stewart score board.

I think I'll pull out my scraps and try and make a few Christmasey ones to submit.

How 'bout you? Do you ever submit to any magazines? Here's the link to Northridge Media if you're ever inclined to do so! Click here.

Those are adorable, Tracie!
I love mini cards :)
And thanks for sharing the calls. I have never had any luck getting anything published with Northridge so kind of stopped looking :)

Looking at your post from yesterday, I love that line, too! I had a ton in my cart at 2p's but it's starting to sell out. I may have to go to the LSS instead :)
