Hello again. Hopefully today is a quick post with loads of pics. I must confess that I didn't make these cards. They were all made by my 6 yr old Massimo.
I am really in awe of him. He came home from school on Tuesday and said: "Mum I need to make my Christmas cards". He needed 28 for classmates and 4 for teachers.
He wasn't at all phased. So I showed him some stencils and he picked the ones he wanted to use.
He loves my distress inks and also the ink dusters. So it was team work as he keeps saying.
I cut the cards and stuck the stencils down so they don't move and he was inking away.
When it came to the above cards I showed him how to use the make up sponge and away he went.
Between yesterday (Saturday) and today we finished the stamping. I helped him somewhat there making sure he didn't move the stamp too much. All the stamps are from Claritystamp.
He has written them all on the inside as well.
Now all he has left to do is to write the envelopes and pop a chocolate in each and he's done.
I am so proud of him. He worked like a trouper. He didn't even think about watching telly but concentrated on getting them done.
Seeing him inspired me to make some similar cards. In turn he decided to copy mine to make the teacher cards.
As a finishing touch i added a little bit of sparkle with a sakura pen. It is subtle and difficult to photograph.
Below are the teacher cards he made. I did the siggly outline and the matting and layering.
For sure at his age I wouldn't have been able to produce this.
Please bear in mind that these were made by a 6 yr old so be kind with comments, Theresa xx
