Arden's Card


I have a friend named Arden. Even though she is only six years old, she has been making cards for quite some time with construction paper and markers.  I thought this challenge would be perfect for her.  Since it is a Simon Says Stamp Challenge, I brought over some Simon Says Stamps, inks, cardstock and colored pencils for her to try out.

  She had a design in mind before I even arrived.  She traced and cut out half a butterfly so that when the recipient opens it,

a whole butterfly is revealed!

She really liked using the different colored ink cubes and the various stamps to make the card come to life.  Keeping to the summer color scheme was part of her design as well.  She will be giving this card to her parents who were on a "Staycation".

Supplies Arden used:
Cardstock ~ Neenah
Thinking of You Stamp Set ~ Simon Says Stamp
Watt's Up Stamp Set ~ Simon Says Stamp
Pale Tomato Ink ~ Hero Arts
Tide Pool Ink ~ Hero Arts
Cornflower Ink ~ Hero Arts
Colored Pencils ~ Faber-Castell
Hole Punch  Construction Paper
