Our awesome Design Team has some fantastic Cards for Kids inspiration for you!

Samantha‘s colorful birthday card features You’re Claw-some! The bear from Critter Concert is a perfect fit for her scene, after some fussy cutting to remove his trumpet! He looks like he’s having lots of luck with the claw machine!

Christy created her amazing birthday card on a panel of Spiffy Speckles paper die cut with the Sunburst Backdrop. She arranged colorful animals from Critters on the Savanna and Wild for You around the Magic Messages greeting!

Joyce‘s card is perfect for a fairytale-loving kid! She created a castle in the clouds with Build-A-Castle and Puffy Cloud Backdrop: Portrait! The Unicorn Picnic critters and fairies look right at home in this happy scene!

Karin‘s kid-friendly birthday card features Village Heroes in a clean and simple grid design!

Franci‘s design features the cute mice of Bubbles of Joy and the Bubble Border to create a sweet card! It is perfect for sending a Scripty Bubble Sentiments “smile” to brighten the day a child!

What could be better than a rainbow chameleon on a kid’s birthday card? Samantha created an inky Stitched Rainbow and added it to layered Shimmer cardstock Zig Zag Squares!

Caly‘s all die cut card is delightful! She inked up the ice cream scoops from I Scream, You Scream in cheery colors and added sweet smiling faces! A cherry on top is the perfect detail. She finished her card with Scripty Sweet and layered everything on a Quilted Backdrop!

Jessica created a modified Center Picture Window Card with Puffy Cloud Borders to create an awesome graduation card! She used Upon a Star for the critter, Simply Celebrate Spring for the cap and So Jelly for the perfect message!

Jenn‘s charming birthday design features the Wild for You lion! He pops against the watercolor Salvaged Patina Distress background! She gave this card a happy vibe with balloons from Bicycle Built for You and a Happy Happy Happy greeting!

Caly’s Cute Unicorn Card

Hi, Friends! It’s Caly with you today, sharing inspiration for the current Sketch Challenge!  This challenge runs through February 28 at 11:59PM ET. I hope my card gives you some ideas to participate!

Sketches are up for interpretation – although sometimes, I can get quite literal with it (which is what I did for my project on Monday’s post when the challenge started.  For this card, I decided to change it up and swap out the hearts from the sketch for images that are a bit more fun.

I used images from the Unicorn Picnic, All the Clouds, and A Little Sparkle sets to create my card today.  I stamped and colored using Copic markers.

Mane: [RV10, RV13, RV17], [Y11, Y15, Y38, E31], [BG11, BG34]
Clouds:  B0000, B00
Body:  W0, W2, W4
Hooves:  W7
Blush:  R30

My background is die-cut using the Outside In Stitched Rectangles using a piece of blue patterned paper from the Watercolor Wishes Petite Paper Pack.  Before attaching my images, to the card panel, I first adhered the unicorn to the clouds and added some Prisma Glitter, then Chunky Glitter to bling up my clouds.

I stamped my sentiment on the large cloud and embossed a part of it over black cardstock before fussy cutting around the scripted sentiment.  I then attached the images with foam adhesive to give it all lots of dimension and finished by embellishing with some iridescent jewels.

I hope you enjoyed this project!  Again, you’ve got until February 28 at 11:59PM ET to participate and we hope you’ll play along!  Thanks so much for stopping by today! ~Caly
