Cards for Kids

 Another special order card - I think I'm making up for lost time!  I used the cute cow from Jackie Topa's Cute Critter class and added a Silhouette fence and grass made with a Martha Stewart punch.  The balloons are from SU's Birthday Whimsy set that were embossed with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Ice, Cotton Candy, and Gold Coast embossing powders.  The clouds were made with a template cut with the Silhouette and sponged with Memento Danube Blue. The rest is computer generated.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Digi Darlas - Fin, Feathers, Fur
Hobbycutz - Card for a Child
Word Play Saturday - Childhood
2 Creative Chicks - Anything Goes for Kids

 The second card was for my grandson who just turned 7.  The Happy Birthday was cut on the Silhouette and the bat, glove, and hat are free clipart.  The duck is also a Jackie Topa design. The grassy knoll was done with three shades of flocking that was rubbed into sticky paper.  I think I like that look better than using glue with the flocking. Carter loved the feel of it!

Thanks for visiting!

  4. A darling, sparkly, beautiful balloon card, Gerlinde! and the "mighty duck" baseball player is super cute! Love how you make your own die cuts like that. The shading on both critters really makes them dimensional and VERY cute! hugs, de
