Little kids love to get surprises. They love to open an envelope, a little parcel or packet, anything that is going to be a surprise unfurling.
I am making some simple cards for kids that we can tuck a little chocolate inside. These corrugated cards would cost a fortune to mail as the card itself is a double fold so the interior of the card is 1/8 inch deep. Perfect for tucking a small prezzie into and hand delivering the card.
The Christmas season is a time for parties, drop in company, open houses, and visiting. It is always nice to have some kid cards on hand. You can't walk into a party with the hostess gift and nothing for the kiddies.
I thought this design paper was perfect for a kid. It has many of the images on it that kids associate with the buildup to Christmas. As I guess they would get handled a lot, I will keep them fairly simple.
The card base is covered with two snippets of that blue and red patterned paper with a piece of ribbon in between them (to stretch the 2 pieces to cover the card front). After that, I just added some more of the infamous dollar store snowflakes. One big layered one,a few tiny ones up on the blue sky, some teensy diamond and it was done. Fastest card ever! I don't know if you can tell, but I used all three sizes of snowflakes on this card. There is the large shimmery oneas the base of the stacked layer. There is only one of the opalescent style layered on the largest snowflake in the sky. The other small ones are a white satin finish and are scattered on the sky and the snow.
Not bothering with a recipe on these super simple cards as it has basically already been described above.
I am entering this card in the following challenges.
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop The snowflakes, bling and chipboard are all from my stash and the ribbon is my only "cut with scissor" :snippet! Hope I don't get expelled!
