Cards in Envy - For the Kids

Welcome to the first card challenge of September for Cards in Envy. With the kids heading back to school, it just makes sense to focus on them. The theme is "For the Kids". Make a card that is specifically for kids. 

I thought some silly face gumballs would be perfect to put a smile on a child's face. 

Paper - Doodlebug - Kraft in Color collection
Stamps - Lawn Fawn
Embossing folder - Close to My Heart
Markers - Copic
Ink - Memento
Banner die cut - American Crafts

I hope you have time to play with us over at Cards in Envy. Just remember, cards need to be flat enough to mail, so no thicker than 1/4".

Some of my favorite and commonly used crafting tools:
Tonic Studios guillotine paper trimmer
Scotch ATG (Advanced Tape Glider) glue gun
Sizzix BIGkick die cut machine
We R Memory Keepers brad setter and piercing tool
We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper
Scotch Mounting Tape 3/4"
Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive liquid glue
MISTI stamping tool
Accent Opaque Digital 100# cover weight paper for card bases

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
