I'm back with a fun back-to-school card for this week's Color Throwdown challenge. This week the team decided to make cards to honor Lori Tecler, as she is heading back to kindergarten this school season....as a TEACHER, of course! She's worked in school administration for years, and has decided to venture out on a new course, in the classroom. We've created our cards to wish her well! Good luck, Lori! You will be AWESOME!
Check out the inspiration photo for the challenge:
Love those colors together! The colors and products I used on this card are all from My Favorite Things. My card base is Grout Gray, and the layers are Electric Red, Blu Raspberry, and Smooth White. I stamped the new Writing Tablet Background in Grout Gray on the card base. The "notepaper" layers were created with the 3x4 Notebook Paper Die-namics. I stamped the lines on the notepaper in Sno Cone using the Head of the Class set. The ruler and apple images from School Days were stamped in Electric Red and Blu Raspberry inks, and then die-cut with the coordinating School Days Die-namics.
The angled layer was created with the new Blueprints 18 Die-namics. The Smooth White stitched layer was created with the Horizontal Stitched Strips Die-namics. I stamped the alphabet across the bottom in Sweet Tooth ink. The paper clip was die-cut using the Office Supplies Die-namics. A trio of enamel dots, a bit of red and white striped twine, and an Electric Red button finish off the details.
Inside, I added a layer of Smooth White, stamped the books in Electric Red, Grout Gray, and Blu Raspberry, stamped the "A+" in Grout Gray, and added a narrow strip of Electric Red card stock across the top.
