When I was a kid, and I lived on the East Coast, school never started before Labor Day. In fact, it was always the Wednesday immediately following Labor Day. Here in New Mexico school started on August 11. There shouldn’t be more than a month left of summer when kids go back to school. Well since it is what it is, I decided to make my daughter a back to school card to tuck in her lunch. I decided to use Classic Crest Cardstock in Classic Natural White. Now if you haven’t tried this cardstock before, this color is almost a light Ivory, rather than a white, so it isn’t as stark but it is also not as yellowish as a more ivory cardstock.
I am using my MISTI to position my image as well as my sentiment because I wanted to make sure both would fit inside the die I am planning to use in my card layout. A lot of times I don’t think ahead, and I am trying to be better about that. so you can see the stamped image and sentiment fit inside the die.
Next I am going to use my copics to color up this fun image. This is from a Kraftin Kimmie Stamp Set called Book Dragon. I have used Copic markers in YG01, YG05, YG09, C1, YR20, YR23 YR24, YR27 to color up my dragon friend.
Then some layering dies from Lawn Fawn with Canvas Texture Rubber Ducky Cardstock and Adobo (Textured) Cardstock with some ScorTape. and this is just about done! One last step and that is to adhere to a card base that I am making from the same Classic Natural White cardstock.
I do hope she likes it when she finds it in her backpack. So what do you think?
I can’t wait to see what you create!
Super cute card! And, still not used to school starting so early in the Southwest either. 🙂
