Coloring cards gift set

The Sherrod Studio DT were challenged to create a gift set of cards including not only the cards, but a box of some sort to put them in. I went a little on the unconventional side and created a set of holiday Thank You cards for a child to color and send to show their appreciation for gifts received from grandparents, aunts and uncles and so on.



















I used the skater image from the Winter Wonderland set and stamped her in black ink, leaving her uncolored. The rest of the card was simply decorated with a section of DP, a punched border (Martha Stewart) and a tied button in the corner. The desktop box was created from a My Timeless Template called Desktop Organizer (template can be purchased at PaperTrey Ink). It was so simple to put together and only took one sheet of cardstock! The box easily holds 6 cards and 6 envelopes and I added in some markers that match the DP and tied them together with a bow. A great gift that also teaches a little one how to write thank you notes for all their Christmas goodies!

Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT created for this challenge - they are all sooo creative!

I am excited to spend the evening tonight with my family at the Star Wars Concert - it is supposed to be a really awesome event and Jacob is such a Star Wars nut, I'm sure he will be thrilled! Have a great day and I will see you on Wednesday!

What a fabulous idea, Mary - I know a ton of little ones that would love to receive this as would their parents :)

I love this what a great idea to let the kids color!

This is such a clever idea! The kids can do a little card making (aka fun) and then write out the thank you note...which isn't always a top priority for the young! T hanks for sharing!

What a great idea! The papers you used for the box is really pretty and I love the border punch also.

Very cool! I've done coloring cards before, but didn't add the DP on it, it's a great touch.
