My 6 and 9 year old sons wanted to give Christmas cards this year to their school friends. Now I know from experience that kids usually get a Chrissy card, rip open the envelope and throw it in their backpacks never to be seen again. With this in mind I knew I need to do something a little bit different.
The Color Me Christmas Stampin’ Up! Stamp Set – wood mount #131742 $35.95 & clear mount #131745 $28.95 is a great one – well worth buying now ready for next years kids cards. I bought the little coloured pencil sets from a cheapy shop and used the great value Seasons of Style paper stacks #132181 for colour and some spotty fun.
Tip: Why not use clear envelopes (#102619 $8.95 for 50)? Shows off your special card keeping it protected and glossy. This way the card may even survive the backpack journey home. 😉
Now the kids will have a fun project to colour and pop on the mantle at home.
Of course my boys didn’t get away with me doing all the work – they each had to write the names and ‘love from’ bits themselves. They enjoy being ‘Stamping Boys’.
