My kiddos had a birthday party to attend this weekend while I was at The Paperie retreat and since I wasn’t going to be home to get them going on a card, I made one myself (usually they make them).
Our norm around here is not to make cards, but to make long tags that can be used as bookmarks so I followed trend and did the same! We simply write a personal message on the back and it’s good to go!
I actually used leftovers from the Kids Birthday Card Class I taught last week – I had a watercolour crazy bird and alcohol inked Shrink Plastic balloon and both were too cute to toss so I stuck them down, added a Happy Birthday and called it done. Super duper simple but it may be one of my faves!
Look at the shine on that Shrink Plastic! I love the translucent colour:
And see the dimension on the Crazy Bird? The dies for these are worth every penny! You can cut out the bird, the eyes, and the wings for every one. I bent up the tip of the wings and tail feathers a little and it’s so easy to keep the eyes white this way:
That’s it! Do your kids make their own cards or are you the supplier? Or do you support Hallmark? LOL
