Anything Goes 4 Kids OR Thank You Cards at SAS4Kids


It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This year, all challenges at SAS4Kids are Anything Goes 4 Kids! We will have an alternative theme that you can choose to follow, but are not required to. Create and link any card that is appropriate for a child and your card could be chosen as one of our top three cards and you could join us as a guest dt member on a future challenge.

The theme for this challenge is: Anything Goes 4 Kids OR Thank  You Cards.  I stamped the background of my thank you card with some fun stamps from MFT and Verve in various colors of bright ink. Then I die cut "thanks" using an alphabet die set from Altenew out of the stamped card front and also out of white fun foam. I glued them together and placed the letters back in the holes (this technique is called the Eclipse Technique by many on line.) I added some colorful gems to complete the thank you card.

I am entering this card in the Kids Kards challenge at Dies R Us and the Add a Sentiment challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.

I just got the same alpha set and was wondering how it would look using the eclipse technique! Hadn't had time to try it yet. Fun card!
