As the saying goes, long time no see!
Let's get right to it then. Here is a card I made at my card and craft meetup over the summer. I used pattern papers for the layering background and flag end. I stamped a sentiment in a coordinating color from that middle background paper. And put the sentiment on a stitched circle die. I love the subtle detail the stitching it gives the card. For more texture, I added a piece of wood "tape" cut diagonially. I tied small bow in natural jute twine under the sentiment. I thought it brought out the whimsicalness of thw pattern paper.

Here is a one layer card I made for a friend's daughter first birthday. I was inspired by a little onesie I found online that had a wreath pattern on the front as well as having the word "one" in gold lettering . Super cute for a first birthday.
I replicated the design for my card. My card is a side folding A2. I "tea stained" my watercolor paper and heat embossed the wreath pattern in white. I then loosely water colored the flowers and leaves. I rounded the corners for a softer edge to the card.
Tell me in the comments below -- do you make a lot of kid cards?
