For the belly bands, I used the same cardstock and paper combos that I had used for the cards and then added red, grey, gold, and white glitter papers in a variety of shapes, along with some black glitter letter and number stickers from my stash. I also die cut some letters and numbers from the gold glitter paper. I used some of the Magical Compliments to layer the letters and numbers on in the first two cards, and then added a special little Aladdin, Jr. charm using CTMH gold base and bling pendents and glass covers along with a bit of white and gold ribbon. Finally, I added sentiments from the (also brand spankin' new) Beyond Awesome stamp set. (LOVE this set!) The sentiments are all stamped on White Daisy cardstock in Black, Whisper, Sapphire, Crystal Blue, Honey and Cranberry inks.
Let's take a quick look at the inside:
You can really see the all the layering when it's open. I layered the front (inside) and the back of the card the same way so that the kids had plenty of room to write. The sentiments (which I stamped in colors matching the base layer cardstock) are from the A Thousand Thanks stamp set. This is my absolute go-to stamp set for thank you cards.
And here's a look at the cards all together:
Have a wonderfully creative week!
