Cool Cardz Scratcheez is a great new craft set from Cool Create, where children can make, design and laminate fun cards to give their friends, family or keep for themselves. The set has an added feature with scratchable stickers that you can place on top of the laminate and friends can scratch it off to reveal a secret message.
The set comes with the following:
- Boho Chic handbag design studio
- 20 laminates
- 20 cards
- 2 sparkling ring stampers
- 2 Boho Chic themed sticker sheets
- 1 Colour Scratch Off Stickers sheet
- 1 Message Scratch Off Stickers sheet
- 48 gems
- 1 felt pen
- 1 scratching tool
I thought there were quite a few accessories with this kit and my daughter immediately wanted to get stuck in creating some cards. What I really liked was that the set can all be packed away inside the handbag shaped case, which is also home to the laminator tool. This keeps everything tidy and also makes it portable to take to friends houses etc.
The idea is you select a card, all of which have a muted background design and then you create a design, picture or message on the card. You can also add pretty stickers to add to the look.
You then take a laminating pouch, open it up and put each half through the yellow laminator tool. Place your card inside and slide the yellow part over which basically peels a paper layer from the pouch to reveal a sticky side which sticks the pouch together containing the card inside.
Then on top of the laminated card you can add gems and the special scratcheez stickers. This can cover a message that will only be revealed once the design is scratched off . There are also black stickers that you can scratch off to reveal a pretty design using the stick and they have a coloured rainbow effect behind.
My daughter has really enjoyed making the Cool Cardz and has started making some for her school friends. This is a fun, different kit that she’s really found enjoyable. Refill kits are available which is a great idea and ou can also get ones based on different themes.
