Hello and thanks for stopping by today! For the October Be Inspired Blog Hop we are creating projects with a common theme. When thinking about what sort of project card to create, it was a quick decision to grab the brilliant new Designer Series Paper called Santa’s Workshop. The images are playful and there is a beautiful velvet coating on the paper that lends amazing texture. Check below to find all of the links to the Design Team’s projects, you will love what they have created to share with you!

Cards for Kids
Fun fold, velvet paper, candy cane stripes, gigantic snowflake, cute characters… all this adds up to kids. My kids in particular want to touch this card and I have to share with you that I had to keep it safely tucked away until I completed writing this post. Especially my youngest, Nate, he adores this card. I like the idea that it conveys giving, which is a lesson important for any child.
Tips for customizing this project
The “candy cane” theme is tied together with the colors on the outside the card front and under the easel area
Snowfall Thinlits dies offers several choices in the size of snowflake to die cut, this is the largest! It is also cut from White Velvet paper, to match the white fuzzy stripes on the candy cane print.
By fussy cutting a few of the tiny elements from Santa’s Workshop DSP to feature on the inside of the easel area, the images stay in the proper perspective throughout the design.
