Back to School Mini Series | Part 3

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.

I must be super excited about this whole back to school thing (both the mini series and the fact that my kids are going soon) because I just can't stop making these cards. Every time I finish one, a little light goes on over my head because I have a new idea!

Moreover, I cannot even believe how many fabulous ideas and layouts I can do with just this one stamp set! Yay MFT!

To start off, I stamped the apple and girl image from MFT's "Class Act" stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on two pieces of Copic-friendly paper. I stamped the apple in a random array so I could make my own accent paper.

I coloured the images in with Copic markers. I added clear Wink of Stella over her boots and over the apples on the side bar, but as usual my camera fails to pick that up. 

I adhered the apple side bar strip down on to a standard A2 sized card, and then adhered the panel with the girl using some foam tape to give it a bit of dimension. There are a few really great greetings that come with this set, but I thought the image spoke for itself.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. Don't forget to follow me over on the right so you don't miss out on any future posts. Also toss me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think. I always love to hear from you.

This card is for:
TGIF Challenges!
