Hi there! Keeping the crafting momentum going... Do the holidays knock the stuffing out of you the way they do me? It was a longer than anticipated Christmas break, but I'm happily getting back into the swing of card crafting. Today I have cards for kids courtesy of the January Spellbinders Small Die of the Month.
Have you ever looked at their Small Die of the Month Club? It's a sweet deal, actually. Every month a new set of small dies with big possibilities. As I investigated and became more familiar with the club I was surprised that it's never just one die, but a whole set of dies the perfect size for cards. If you don't want the particular set of the month, you have the option to click and skip. More information here.
First, a birthday card:
As it happens, this die set tickled my fancy, considering the three little girls next door and many friends wanting cards for kids. It was like playing with paper dolls. Do they still make paper dolls?
My second card is for a kids' Christmas. It's never too soon to get started, is it? I know... groan... we just finished! With a little change here and there, the Christmas card could be turned into a Valentine.
Peace on earth... it's a nice thought. These kids aren't exactly dressed for the cold weather, but when they woke up and found the landscape had changed overnight into a winter wonderland they got all excited and ran outside. Popped their heads back through the window -- created by nesting Spellbinders Scored and Pierced Rectangles. Overhead the window blind has a ruffled edge made with the girl's skirt ruffle x 3, and a blind pull courtesy of the balloon string. Fun stuff!
Many thanks to Spellbinders for giving me the opportunity to play with this month's adorable Small Die of the Month set, and thank you for helping me start off a new year of crafting. Have a happy day!
