Back to School 5-Year Old Grandson's Card for his Mom's Teacher's Desk

Stampin’ Up! Supplies:

Mint Macaron Cardstock

Whisper White Cardstock

Sailing Home Stamp Set

Night of Navy Ink

Pear Pizzazz Ink


My two grandsons (ages 8 + 5) will be starting school on Monday.

I am having loads of fun spending this week with them, as their Dad & Mom who are both teachers, went back to school this week.

The project for the Boys today was to create a drawing for their Dad’s classroom. After completing their project, I asked the boys if they wanted to make a card for their Mom’s room. The youngest grandson, Evan, spoke up & asked……did you bring your supplies? I said, I sure did & he said ‘I want to make one’.

(He created his first card with me when he was 3 years old)

That’s when the fun began.

Using only the supplies I brought with me, he picked out the stamps he wanted to use from the Stamp Set I had. He stamped the images on the card, with a little guidance from me, with the ink colors he chose. I only pre-cut the Cardstock & Fussy Cut the Sail Boat, he did the rest.
