Back to School

 

 

Back to School



This is a card that I have made for a challenge called "Back To School"

 

I have used a 8in x 8in card from Craftwork cards. I love these size cards as you can do so much with them. I cut a black card stock to cover the card, I used Dew Drop Brilliant in black, gold and starlite black to make a pattern on the card. The image is a stamp from Crafters companion (paintbox poppets) I coloured it in with Promrker pens

 

 
Its a great stamp from Crafters companion, I cut the image out using a spellbinder die

 
I mounted the image onto black card stock and edge wth black cosmic glue. I used distress ink to age the paper
 
 
I used some writing paper and aged it with the distress ink and curled up the edges. I added lace ribbon in cream and black to the edge of the card

 
This is the mini book i made using a spellbinder die,I added some pearl liquid to it
 
 
This is the inside of the book. I wrote the letters of the abc and drew pictures on each page.

 
The tag i made from a chipboard tag from Craftwork cards. I covered in paper, inked it and wrote the message
 
 
 
This is the inside of the card. I will add a sentiment or verse later when i decide who i'm giving it to.
 
Thank you so much for coming over and having a look, Please feel free to leave a message as I love to read them
 
Thank you
 
Love Lise xxx
