Bloghop 12; Kids Cards

Welcome to the 12th blog hop of Global Stamping Friends.  I have to say never did I imagine that the group I created a year ago would explode like it has. So sit down, get a drink and maybe some chocolate or biscuit and enjoy the hop of 29 demos!  Yes there are 29 of us taking part around the world- be prepared to find amazing new ideas for your crafting. 

This month's topic is Kids Cards. I love making cards for kids but seem to have made so many with dinosaurs, trains and aliens that I decided to go with butterflies!

I love this card and am sure that some little child would too!

The inside is also stamped with the Butterfly Basics gorgeous butterfly stamp.

For something a bit different the card front actually comes off to create a hanging. I would have loved this in my room as a little girl.

I just added two bits of tape to the back and didn't only stuck down one piece. This picture shows one of the ribbon pieces stuck down already - hope it makes sense.

I thought it was too pretty to leave it on the card, but also wanted the card not to be naked when removed so I had added the second panel stamped with the Stylized Happy Birthday stamp - a very versatile stamp to have. The panel can't be seen until you take the front piece off.

And what card would complete without a present?  I decided to create a coordinating treat bag that holds the gift.

I love how the butterfly holds to giftcard in place.

I hope that you enjoyed my project and please hop on to see what Lisa has created for you by clicking the next button.

Happy Hopping

PS: Please excuse the photo phone decided to find the floor just before I was taking the pictures!!!! Time for a new phone maybe...
