Many of you already know that Little Miss C and Little Mr P like to make cards. Truth be told, Little Mr P likes to make and sell his cards.
Now that we live so close to them, he is delighted to just pop by after school just to make a card or two...especially if there is a family members birthday approaching. He has figured out the odds of selling his card at this time are greatly improved!
Here is his latest card. I think it is so darn cute. I do help them a bit with the card design, but mostly they take out the little photo albums of dies I have already precut, and match them up to the images they have colored.
Little Mr P wanted to use that big yellow Spellbinders pointy circle frame type diecut, but the aperture was too big for his image. He mulled it over and decided that he could layer some other diecuts, and eventually the matted image would be the right size. Brilliant idea....and it made his card so darn cute!
The DP is all from my bits box. The stripey paper was chosen as it seemed to contain most of the colours of the layered mats. The dotty one was supposed to look like sky! The sentiment is a rub on and just sits on a hand cut banner flag.
The adorable little frog is from Stampin' Up and been given a shot of Stardust stickles. He is learning to stamp his own images now. He has the same trouble as I do with keeping the pressure on the image and sentiment evenly. I will have to remember to go over the sentiment with an extra fine black marker!
The grass diecut is another from my stash of precut ones. My stash is getting low now, so I should spend an evening rolling off some dies. Perhaps it is time to roll off some new ones that have never seen my Big Shot before!
When he was all finished, he turned to me and said "I will sell you this card for three dollars and you can give it to me for my birthday". I had to turn my head to the side so he would not see me smiling!
I did buy it from him, but had a different card ready for his special day...so will save this one for another day.
