Yup, it was definitely a Monday yesterday! It was a little long and busy, not my favorite day. How was your day yesterday? I did get to come home and craft though so all is was good in the end. 🙂 Tonight I’m going out to dinner with my co-workers and that should be a lot of fun. I like them and I think we are having Mexican and I like that too! I have my third Display Stamper project for you at the end of the post so don’t forget to take a look, no cheating! LOL!
Today’s post is my card for the SUO Challenges Design Team. This time around we have a Back to School theme for you…
I don’t really have anything current that I could think of so I dusted off an oldie but a goodie! The base of my card is Pacific Point Card Stock. The background is a piece of Real Red that I embossed with the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Yes, I created the piece of notebook paper with my Stampin’ Write Markers and the “Vintage” Spiral Border Punch (a favorite of mine!). I used Melon Mambo and Pool Party as I thought they were the closest to actual notebook paper colors. All of the images are from the “Vintage” First Day Stamp Set. The A+ is punched out with the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch and backed with a piece of Gumball Green that is punched out with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch. I used some Whisper White Bakers Twine on the tag and the apples are punched out with the 1/2″ Circle Punch. I really love the primary colors and the images in the set are still pretty neat. I also love that Alphabet Press EF! Thank you for taking some time to stop by and see my SUO Challenges Design Team card for the Back to School challenge. Head on over to the blog and see what my talented team mates have done and enter your project in the gallery. I hope you have a great day and don’t forget about the Display Stamper 3 project at the end!
