Every now and then I would love to do an “out of the box” or a kid’s card/project on here! So today is one of those days! I am doing both an “out of the box” idea and a kid’s card in one. My boys loved this project and hopefully you or your kids will too!
I was chopping some celery the other day and was left with the root end. It was such a beautiful flower-y looking end and of course it got my mind spinning with ideas! (Left to my own devices, I am dangerous!) haha. Anyways I thought this would be a fun project for the boys to stamp with the celery ends to create roses and make a fun Valentine’s card for a special someone!
So, just in case the celery stamping would ruin my ink pad (which it did not) I pulled out a retired In-Color Strawberry Slush, but I’m thinking Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride or Rose Red would give some nice rose colors as well…or a combination of all! I used the What I Love Sale-a-Bration set for my greetings and leaves and we stamped those in Pear Pizzazz on Pear Pizzazz card stock. I simply snipped my saying into a banner and popped up my “You.” with a dimensional.
I think they turned out marvelously! What do you think? Which is your favorite? 😉
