Kids Craft Fun Idea For A Card

Created by our designer Craig Laird -

I have made a 7x7 kids thank you card that is quick, simple for a child to make. Using distress inks and my finger, I created the flower petal shape by stamping my finger print onto the card. I did the same for the leaves of the flower. 
The card has 2 layers of matting and layering and a thank you stamp I had in my stash. The centre matt and layer as been raised slightly using 1mm 3D foam pads. 

As I child, I was always brought up to write a thank you letter to friends and family who gave me a gift for what ever the occasion was. This was usually on a pack of thank you notelets that had been bought from a shop. As thoughtful as that was, having your kids make their own thank you cards makes the appreciation of the gift more special.  Of course the cutting out would need to be done by an adult or have adult supervision depending on the age of the kids. It's a great way to get your children involved in crafting from an early age as well as making sure they appreciate the gifts they are given.

Hi would you mind letting me know which hosting company you're utilizing? I've loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a fair price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!
