Sorry for the late posting of this but I have been on holidays.
Anyway the challenge at Just Add Ink this week is to make a kid’s card.
My son is Stepdad to (almost) 5 yr old twin boys and this is for one of them.
I know from experience, that boys (and men) love cards that “do something” and so I decided to make a suspension card. There is a great tutorial here on splitcoast if you’d like to give one a try.
If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you might remember that I am on the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen Design Team? Well the theme there this month is “Back to Primary” and I have made another suspension card (for the other twin) that can be seen there if you are a member.
I coloured the pteranodon with copics and cut him out and used shimmery white for the centre of the sun. I don’t have a sun die, but I used my scallop circle nesties which I think still worked okay. Then I created the sun’s rays by simply moving a post-it note around the circle and sponging daffodil delight and a little pumpkin pie off the edge of it. It’s the first time I’ve tried that and I like how it turned out. There is a little fishing line to suspend the sun and on the back of it is a big red number 5.
