Another Sunday, another challenge over at Can You Case It. This week's challenge is a Back to School theme. I had no idea what or how I was going to come up with a card for this challenge. As some of you may know, I purchase a lot of my supplies at yard sales and from Craig's list. As I rooted thru a large pile of scrapbook papers from one of my purchases, I came across some that were school themed. So I cut a piece of the brown scrapbook paper that had a lot of school related graffiti on it which I thought would make for a great background. I matted it first onto red and then attached to a black base card. I then cut three square school related images from another sheet of scrapbook paper. They were then mounted on red and yellow stitched squares using my cottage cutz stitched squares dies. Then I used a larger pierced square die from my Sizzix Square Flip Its #2 die set in black. The "school days" strip was cut from yet another piece of scrapbook paper which I mounted on black and then glued two red apple buttons on either side. Considering I had no idea what I was going to do for this challenge, I am really happy with how this card turned out. I was also able to use my high school colors which were red and yellow.
I hope you like this card too! Please stop by www.canyoucaseit.com and see all the wonderful design team's creations. Maybe they will inspire you to join in too!
