Anything Goes 4 Kids Card Recipe

I don't know about you but I can always use a birthday card in my stash.  This card could be used for either a boy or a girl (if you remove the sparkly enamel dots) because everyone loves cake.  Well everyone should love cake!  I found this background in my stash and layered it with coordinating card stock.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things and the enamel dots are from the Dollar Tree.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  Consider entering our challenge and donating your hand made cards to our great charity.

Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.

It is Thursday and that means it is time for a new challenge at the Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog.  This week's challenge is Anything Goes.  Our wonderful sponsor is Leann's World and if you enter you have the chance to win a $12 gift certificate.

I used the image Byron and Leann Winter to create my card.




Finish the Inside Card Recipe

I printed this cute image and I just couldn't do it justice by coloring it so I just added some highlight colors.  I used an Elizabeth Craft heart die to cut black and red hearts to place behind the image which I also cut out using the die.  The inside is white with red and black matting.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.  The enamel red heart is from Taylored Expressions.

I printed this adorable image from Imagine That Digi Stamp along with one of the sentiments in the set.  I cut out the sentiment with a banner die from My Favorite Things and popped it up on foam tape.  I added some coordinating card stock and enamel dots and there you have it.  I just love those pre-colored digis for a fun quick hand made card.

Love Cards 4 Kids Card Recipe

This card is one of many that I made using only card stock, my tape runner and a cutter.  It was a 6 x 6 paper pad that also included the nice sentiments pages.  I used several sketches and coordinating card stock to create a nice little stash of cards.  You can't go wrong with beautiful card stock.
