Birthday Bears Coloring Card

Birthday Bears Coloring Card


This “interactive” card was created with the idea that the recipient would have the opportunity to color the images upon receiving it.  Of course, it could be sent with color as well!


This card is being used to demonstrate the masking technique in one of the classes I am teaching through the Haddonfield Adult School.  Because time is so limited, I was trying to come up with a project that we could complete quickly, and leaving the images uncolored seemed the best way to do that.  I wasn’t comfortable sending the students home with an “unfinished card” though….. unless it was supposed to be unfinished….. and came up with the idea to include a box of crayons with the card!  Lazy, rushed, or genius?  Hmmmmm……

The “Beary Special Birthday” stamp set from My Favorite Things has a bunch of adorable images that can be layered (with masking) to create cute birthday scenes.

I used “Summer Daze” card stock from Recollections along with “From Me to You – Mail Poste Correo” patterned card stock (#732258) from Pebbles.  For my colored version, I used Artist’s Loft Colored Pencils.

Thanks for checking out my card project!

  1. I used to do coloring cards in my early days of stamping. I sent them to kids mostly. I think yours is a great idea and so well designed. I can just imagine how much fun it is to share your love of card making with others. I know I enjoy it.
