Assignment: Make back to school cards
(Yes this is a belated posting)
I had some sets of stickers that fit the 'school' theme so that's what I started with. This first one got a stamped background using my hand-carved crayon image. I placed two stickers on yellow cardstock and trimmed to leave a tiny border. These are popped up on foam dots. I added the word 'school' in rubon letters and cut out the word 'spirit' from a scrapbook paper. The pencil is a sticker and I turned it into an exclaimation point with the addition of a rhinestone. The yellow border all around is the folded card base:
I moved on to a set of stickers that depicts school notebooks. I framed each out in yellow cardstock. For the background I started with a navy blue card, layered a denim print paper, then ablue with script and swirls, then a strip of dictionary print card. Each of these was distressed with 'ole paper' ink before layering. I found someletter stickers with the notebook image and used these to write 'student' at the bottom. Round stickers spell out 'star' at the top and I added a star paperclip as well. This panel was mounted to a yellow card base and the three tags were popped up on foam dots:
Finally, I used OWH Sketch #75 to create this card on a blue card base with a light green panel over it. Strips of text and script papers run horizontally and a red accent strip makes the vertical. Three framed tags overlay the red strip with only the bottom one popped up on foam. The text at the upper left is from a sticker sheet:
These were sent to OWH.
