I'm back today with a fun little challenge that my girls and I decided to do together. My youngest daughter loves all kinds of crafts and often makes cards. My oldest daughter has never been interested in card making. She's an artist and prefers to draw. However, she has suddenly shown an interest in card making and it was her idea for the three of us to make cards today! I jumped right on it and turned it into a challenge.
We each had to make a card using a Kraft card base and stamps from Beautiful Butterflies. The other supplies were optional. Here's what I set out:
I knew that I wanted to use some polka dots for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge, so I decided we could use bitty dot patterned paper too:)
Here's what I came up with. Although I didn't create a birthday card I used the sketch from the current birthday challenge at Moxie Fab.
Here is the card that my oldest daughter made. She actually lit the corner on fire to distress it. Then she sponged distress ink on the edge. She came up with the embossing on her own (without seeing my card).
And here is what my youngest daughter created. She sponged the colors on her die cut. She actually asked if it would be too ironic for her to stamp the sentiment in black when it was referring to rainbows. LOL!!
We had a lot of fun making these and then sharing the end results with each other. I'm sure they'll want to do this type of challenge again soon.
Have a great weekend,
