From the files: Kids' cards

It's hard for me to define exactly what makes a "kid card." Sometimes the stamped images make it pretty obvious. But the kid factor could be something else, such as a playful embellishment or a bright color combination. Here are a few of the children's cards I've made the past few years.

Card with a stamped and colored storybook scene: dragon in front of a castle, princess and a prince with his sword drawn.

Little girl's birthday card with the image of one girl pulling a friend in a little red wagon.

Farm scene with red barn, white fence, green hills and a horse, cow, pig and sheep.
Orange birthday card with a stamped jar of M&Ms candy.

Green card with scalloped circle punched out of the corner to look like an alligator chomp. Alligator print and jungle-themed papers, an alligator focal image and the sentiment "wild about you.".

Orange card with brown panel. Focal image is four bugs stacked on top of each other. Sentiment reads "Sending worm wishes on your bug day."

Light blue card with three images: orange pickup truck, blue car and green dump truck. Images are on punched circles over patterned papers in the same colors (orange, blue, green).
