SBTD Blog Hop Cards or Gifts for Children

Welcome to June's Stampers By The Dozen (SBTD) Blog Hop and this month we are focusing on cards and gifts for children. I love creating projects for kids because it is so much fun to play with bright colors and cheerful images. 

When I think about cards for kids, I think of birthday cards and celebrating reaching that one year older. I fell in love with the Postcard Pals stamp set from the New 2018-2019 Annual Catalog and thought it would be perfect for kids. 

I chose to use Blueberry Bushel cardstock for the card base as I love this beautiful vibrant blue from the new 2018-2020 In Colors. It works perfectly with the layer of Coastal Cabana cardstock, which is a returning color joining the revamped color collections. I embossed the Coastal Cabana cardstock with the Ruffled 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to give the appearance of waves. I added a layer of Blueberry Bushel Designer Series Paper from the 2018-2020 In Color 6"x6" Designer Series Paper pack (item #146963), along the left side of the card. I loved that the small polka dots gave the appearance of bubbles. 
The pelican image has been stamped onto a Whisper White cardstock circle using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The circle was die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies using the largest circle. I colored the cute pelican with Stampin' Blend Markers. I love the bright colors of these markers and they really helped bring him to life. The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock with Blueberry Bushel Classic ink and I flagged the ends to create a banner using the Tailored Tag punch. To add a little sparkle, I added silver sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortmant using Mini Glue Dots. 

This adorable card would be perfect for either a boy or a girl and the Postcard Pals stamp set has a variety of sentiments that you can choose from to personalize your card design. This is just one of the cute images in this stamp set and I can't wait to try the others.

I hope you have had fun visiting my blog today and I hope my card helps inspire you to create fun cards for your children. Now it's time to visit Lyndsay's blog and see what she has created for this month's challenge. Just click the Next button below to visit her blog.
