How to make a 7 year old happy - my handmade pokémon letter

This is for Matthew, an awesome 7 year old boy from America. He loves Pokémon (as I did when I was younger) so I crafted him a little present. Items used:

  • Daler Rowney Sketchbook paper in Soft White, 100 g/m²
  • Pencil
  • Staedtler pigment liner 0.5
  • Prismacolor | Premier - Sunburst Yellow (PC917) & Scarlet Lake (PC923)
  • tesa Stick (my glue stick of choice for paper)

Made me remember how easy & fun it is to make custom cards ;)

I always loved to make my own cards for people. They are more personal and unique than the ones you buy in a shop and I just love to use my creativity to make someone smile. I've noticed that over the years people have kept and cherished my little personal artworks so much, that I can still find them here and there on a pinboard or in a special treasure box when I visit them. I think they can feel they joy, love and effort that went into the card's creation and that is what makes it so valuable.

Today my lovely relative Krista visited us and I could present my gift so, soon young Matthew will hold it in his hands,... and I'd love to see his smile <3

Hope you'll like it too :)
