World Card Making Day was so much fun. I watched a ton of inspirational videos on YouTube and created a number of cards also. My kiddos have a birthday party to attend in a few weeks. The party has a pirate theme and is for a brother and sister. Each one of my kiddos made one card. They used the same stamp set.

Size: A2 cards
Extra Details: We began these cards by stamping a lot of images on a half sheet of water color paper. I used Versa Fine ink and clear heat embossing powder so that I could begin water coloring the images right away. I used Crayola Fine Line markers and a water brush to color all of the images. Once the images were dry, I fussy cut everything out, leaving a small white border.
The cards were assembled in very similar ways. Each kiddo chose a card base; light purple and light blue. We stamped some clouds with white pigment ink. We also added a few birds with black ink.
I die cut two sets of waves and a beach for each card. I used two shades of blue card stock and a scalloped border die for the waves. I used kraft card stock and a stitched hillside die for the beach. I layered the beach and waves together and adhered them to the card bases.
Next, the kiddos arranged all of their images on the card front. I used liquid glue to adhere everything down. Once dry, we stamped the sentiment on the outside and inside of the cards. There were a few images left over, so we adhered them to the inside of back of the cards.
