Cards That Keep Giving – DIY Colouring Cards

How would you feel about giving a card to someone that needs finishing???

Sounds crazy, but these black & white creations complete with pencils make an awesome card & gift all in one!

I’ve made this type of card before and as I prepare for a market next month, I am revisiting some ideas that I think will be fun for people to browse through (and buy!).

The fairy was my first inspiration…

DIY Colouring Cards - Fairy Celebration. Black & white images with pencils attached. Fun for kids & adults! Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

And then I added the Barnyard Babies to the range…

And decided that kids shouldn’t have all the fun, so I made this Garden in Bloom bouquet…

This style of card will work for any stamped images that have solid outlines and lend themselves to colouring!

And if you hate colouring – then this is inspired, because the recipient is going to do it for you!!!

PS, I added one more card to the range today – it tickles my sense of humour … but that might just be me!

  1. I think that this is one of the most brilliant ideas that I have seen in a very long time. Not only for kids cards but also for someone who may be under the weather or for someone who likes to do crafts etc. Just brilliant.

    • Thanks Mary Ann. So far all the colouring cards I’ve made have been birthday or Christmas – but you’ve inspired me to make some thinking of you & get better ones. Thanks so much! Kelly x
