My daughter has been wanting to do a card class with her friends for a while and since we didn’t have any plans for spring break this year, it was a great time to plan one. She was so excited to help design the cards, prep the supplies, and be my assistant for the class!
Since it’s springtime and there are lots of birthday parties coming up, we decided to make three birthday cards.
The cards were designed with the kids’ ages mind, Grades 3-6. They needed to be cute, but not babyish and simple, but not so simple the kids were bored!
The challenge on this card was the watercolour background, but my assistant loved the look and we had to try it!
The second card was a cute, sunny, flower that looks hard to make, but is actually just a bunch of easy steps put together. There was stamping, shape punching, and using the big shot so we set this one up like an assembly line.
We were undecided if we should do punched shapes for the face of the flower or if it would be too difficult working with such little pieces, so the kids were given the option to just draw the face. I thought both ways were really cute!
The final card was designed to be a “choose your own adventure”. They chose the background paper, type of stamp, coloured it however they wanted, and added sequins or a bow to embellish it.
These cards really allowed the imagination to take over to create one of a kind artwork!
We had so much fun with this card class that Robyn wants to start planning another one! If you are interested in having your child attend a card class, please let me know by leaving a comment or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
