Back to School!

Posted by on September 2, 2009

Yesterday was the first day of school for both Eve & I. I am super excited for her to be in first grade and so is she! We made some “Back to School” cards for her teachers (she has two this year).  I went with the classic apple from Tart and Tangy. I love the look of it colored with markers! I also used the new Holiday Windows dies (from the Mini Catalog) with the Movers and Shaper die to create a really fun card. This is the outside of the card I made:

Ink: Real Red, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Real red, Whisper White, Jackpot Designer Series Paper
Other: Real Red 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon, Mover & Shaper Bigz Die, Holiday Windows Die, Big Shot

And here is the card opened up:

Eve also used the same die. It’s really neat how you can move it around to have the opening wherever you’d like. We were both happy to learn that although it is recommended to only cut one sheet of card stock with the Movers and Shaper dies, we were able to cut a piece of cardstock together with a piece of Designer Series Paper, and even two pieces of card stock. We attached the front pieces before running them through the Big Shot. Here is the front of Eve’s card:

I am also on the Faculty Social Committee here at school. I volunteered to make cards to go in all of the new teachers boxes on the first day of school. Unfortunately, this was Monday afternoon, and the first day of school was Tuesday! I had to come up with something quick and easy, so I used Tart & Tangy again, and made some cute little 3″ x 3″ cards. A big thank you to my husband for punching the circles and scallop circles for me!
