Hello, friends. A line from Shakespeare just popped into my head: “Ask not for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.” Actually, it tolls for my kids because next week they go back to school – back to early mornings and homework and busy schedules. On second thought, I guess it tolls for me, too. 🙁 Oh, well, let’s just distract ourselves with a cute card, shall we?
I just love the new Schoolhouse set from Neat & Tangled! I have some teacher friends, so I thought it would be fun to make a card for one of them. I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored them with Copics, and cut them out with my ScanNCut2. I added some clear Zig Wink of Stella to the metal band on the pencil.
This card came together pretty quickly. I adhered my images to a white card, popping up the fox with foam tape, and “grounded” them with some colorful washi tape from my stash. Onto a strip of black cardstock, I stamped and heat-embossed a sentiment from Schoolhouse. After popping that up onto my card, I finished with some clear sequins.
Well, I’m off to go shopping for school supplies – much to my kids’ (and my wallet’s) dismay. Thanks for stopping by!
I’m linking up this card with the following challenges: Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: You’ve Got the Edge, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes, 7 Kids Challenge #10: Anything Goes, and Addicted to Stamps Challenge #252: Make Your Mark.
