Make it Monday: Colouring Cards!

Hello friends! I’m really enjoying thinking about designs for kid’s cards this month and this card was inspired by the very talented Kelly Kent

She’s made numerous DIY colouring cards to sell at markets, and I have quite a few stamped images, like this giraffe, that I think would work well for her card concept:

I chose the giraffe as it has solid lines, would be fun to colour, and is perfect to give to a child who’s not feeling well and needs something to do 🙂    

These pencils are from a packet of half length pencils I found at our local Hot Dollar shop; I thought they were cheap at $1.50, but … these pencils from Officeworks are a real bargain, 50 pencils for just $3.00!! The card uses a small piece of Designer Series Paper for attaching the pencils:

Look closely and you’ll see the 2 small holes I punched in the paper for threading the twine through; I used double sided tape to attach that paper to the card front:  

The first version of this card had no stamped sentiment and looked very bare:

So I added these words from the Back on Your Feet stamp set using a die from the Word Bubbles Framelits (retired) – much better! 

MEANWHILEStampin’ Up! has launched the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue so time for me to go shopping!! 

Thanks so much for visiting me today; I really appreciate you spending time here 🙂 If you have any questions please ask and I hope this has given you a little inspiration!  Megan xo
