Kid’s Cards: Linda’s View

By: Linda Selymes, Artistic Guide

Finished Card Size: 5,5" x 5,5"

Peek-a-boo digital stamp (Karen's Doodles)
Classic Crest Solar White (Neenah)
Patterned Card Stock from Nana's Kids Premium Stack (DCWV)
Black Glossy Paper (scrap from stash)

Copic Alcohol Markers (.too corp.)
Paper Flowers (Prima Marketing, Inc.)
Die Cutting Machine (Cuttlebug)
Scalloped Oval Die (Nestabilities)
Computer, printer and software to edit picture size
Paper trimmer
Double-sided adhesive
Glue dots


  1. Copy digital image into editing software and resize to about 2.5" tall.  It will be almost, but not quite, square.  Print on Classic Crest C.S., trim the image to a 2.75" square, and color with Copic markers, or medium of choice.  I used E13, E11, and E00 for the little girl's skin.  Her hair was colored with E35, YR 23 and YR21.  The panties were colored in RV23, RV21. and RV10.  The too too and lace on the panties were colored with RV21, RV10 and the colorless blender.  Shading was done with BG10 and BG0000.
  2. Adhere completed image  to a scrap of glossy black C.S., trimmed just slightly larger than the image.
  3. The sentiment was computer generated, and cut and embossed with the nestability and cuttlebug machine.  After embossing, run a Copic pen (RV02) carefully around the outside of the die cut to add a pink border.
  4. Make top opening card blank from an 8.5" x 11" piece of C.S., cut to 5.5" x 11" and folded in half.  Cut the designer pattern C.S. to a 5.5" square and adhere to the card front.
  5. Adhere the focal image, the sentiment, and paper flowers to the card front as shown in the picture above.
  6. Don't forget to sign your work.

This card is cute, but quick and easy to make.  Mine is going to my great grandaughter in August, when she will be two.  And guess what?  Shortly after Isabella was born, my other granddaughter gave birth to a beautiful baby boy.  So here is the card he will get.  This card is 5" x 7".  It uses three digital stamps from Karen's Doodles; the sentiment is hand written; and all the background papers are from the scrap files.

Until next time, happy stamping!
