Creating Cards for Children with CrafTangles Products

Happy Wednesday!

The sun is out even though it's chilly and I've just done a quick shop.  I've got my to do list ready to go through after I've sorted this blog post.  Having a quick coffee before I begin!

I'm up on the CrafTangles blog today with a trio of cards I made with children in mind, although there is nothing stopping me from giving them to an adult! Haha!


For the first card I've created a rainbow background using a star stencil and distress inks.  I've then stamped and fussy cut the image of the girl with an umbrella and added a sentiment.


Next up, I concentrated on the background for this one by using distress inks with the stencil and a spritz of water.  Im pleased with how the waves came out.


I then framed the scene using circle nesting dies to create a frame.  I added stamped and die cut images, finishing with sequins to embellish.


Finally, a card using one of my all time favourite stamp and die sets.  I decided I wanted to make the background the focus so I used my distress inks again but I wanted the number 5 to stand out as it was for a 5 year old so inked all those in red.


I stamped the image but decide against colouring to keep the main focus on the background.  I think it works don't you?

All being well I shall be back on Friday with another blog post.

Enjoy the rest of the week,
Shabneez
