On to today - I have this gorgeous Kids Card to share, I’ve made it using another one of the wonderful tutorials on Split Coast Stampers, this time a Cross Over card.


There are three parts to this card, firstly the Cross Over part, which is stuck together to make a kind of envelope base. The dp is from My Minds Eye and I’ve used one small sheet of paper – showing both sides of it. I then punched a couple of little dragon flies to break up the timber side of the paper.


Then the insert to fill the base, or tag if you like. I’ve stamped a flourish and used the smallest Spellbinder Labels 4 to make a tab pull on the top. I then layered a fussy cat lion onto it. A bit of sentiment – this one is Happy Birthday from my Annabelle Stamps set of All Things Grow, along with a row of stars from one of my Christmas stamp sets. Another little dragonfly in a co-ordinating colour and a fussy cut pussy cat too.


It sits inside the crossed over base just nicely, with the tag and lions head sticking out the top. The Ink I used was Stampin Up, Tangerine Tango.


A cute band is then wrapped around the card. I’ve used Acetate for my band as I didn’t want to hide the animals on the paper. I embossed it with a cuttlebug dotty embossing folder for some texture, and so you can actually see it. It’s decorated with some ribbon and a Quick Cutz Flourish die.

Voila – all done.
I’d like to share this at the following challenges:-
