Welcome to 2023 at SAS4K!
The theme for the March Challenge at
Cards 4 Boys.
Anything Goes for kids is always acceptable, too.
We just want to see your wonderful creations
and hope you enjoy making and sharing them!
Today I'd like to share the card I made for my grandson's 18th birthday. He loves baseball. From the time he was small, he was always the happiest when he was outside and had a ball in his hand. Turning 18 is such a momentous age. He will graduate High School in a few months and in a few more he will enter Messiah University where he has already committed to playing baseball with their team. We are so very proud of him!
I like to make special cards for the grandkids. This card has a zip strip across the front. It hides the gift underneath.
In case you'd like to try a card like this, here are some directions. I hope they are not too confusing: Cut a piece of white card stock 4" x 5 1/4". Using a die, I cut the zip strip 2" down from the top of the card and then removed the strip. Next I glued the baseball paper onto a piece of red cs the same size as the white piece and cut a zip strip in the same location as the white piece. Do not remove this zip strip. The white piece was carefully glued onto the front of an A2 navy card, only applying adhesive to the very edge of the paper. That allows you to slip a gift card, cash, or even a note into that opening between the two layers. Just make sure the top of the gift card shows in the slot and can easily be removed. Then you can glue the card front onto the white piece, lining up the 2 slots.
I carefully folded the zip strip back about 3/8" and wrote PULL on the tab.
It would be great if you joined the fun at the
