On Saturday a friends youngest son turned 6. I don’t have many ‘kids’ stamps but when I saw the Everyday Hero in the Occasions Catalogue I knew that would be a good one for kids of all ages.
This card is a combination of the layout in the catalogue and one I saw online by Mikaela Titheridge.
I love the bright colours of Real Red, Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight and when they’re teamed with Basic Black they really stand out. To create this card I stamped Daffodil Delight onto Daffodil Delight cardstock measuring 6cm x 5cm, Memento Black stamped onto Sahara Sand cardstock measuring 9.5cm x 3.7cm – the ‘windows’ are coloured in using the Daffodil Delight Marker, Memento Black stamped onto Soft Sky cardstock measuring 6.7cm x 4.7cm and the ‘WOW’ is coloured in using the Pacific Point Marker.
My Super Hero was stamped in Memento Black on a scrap of Shimmery White and coloured in using Real Red, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight and Chocolate Chip Markers and then ‘fussy cut’ out.
The Basic Black base is 10cm x 14.3cm.
I used the retiring Bakers Box for my chocolate holder and then stamped the ‘city’ image onto a strip of Whisper White and coloured the buildings in with various shades of Markers from the Neutral set. I added a bit of colour on the ‘sign’ carrying over the Real Red, Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight.
When I went to drop the gift off they were out so I left it by the front door. His mother messaged me later to say that when they got home and he found the card he exclaimed “Yay! The card lady’s been here!!” – how cute is that. I love creating cards and gifts and a response like this makes it so worthwhile 🙂
Check back tomorrow for another card using this set for somebody very special who is just a little bit older than 6!
