My son asked me to make a thank you card for one of the girls that had been helping them build a tree fort, so I told him to go down and pick the stamp set(s) he wanted to use, and this is what he picked, he helped me come up with the lay out, I just gave him a few suggestions along the way and told him what things I had avalible. The kids love helping me design cards and see what they had in thier minds come to life in a card. The thank you from Alphabet Soup is done with the dazzling diamonds techinque, and the tree is colored with crayola colored pencils and then I used a stump and turpenoid to do the Magic Colored Pencil Technique. He also wanted some type of Easter tie in as it was Easter, so we did the egg for a background. I had fun with this card. It is the first time I have used that ribbon and also the first time I got to use the colored paper clips from Target. He said the girl loved it and couldn't believe it was handmade. Both he and I signed the back, which he thought was awesome..lol. Overall it was a fun card to make and got to try out some new things!
