Bertram’s first day of school

And with that another year has passed and it is time for me to send a card out to Bertram for his first day of school! It is the third time I am doing this which is a little hard to believe actually: 1. year and 2. year can be seen by following the links.

This time around I made the card using a technique from Online Card Classes’ Background Check: I made my own stencil using dies. Since I was aiming for a school themed card I chose a Papertrey Ink border die with numbers. I used four different colours of Distress Inks to colour through the stencil, and afterwards I stamped small stars in the same four colours in the spaces between the numbers.

As far as embellishments and sentiments go, I chose a large number 2 and combined it with a banner on which I stamped 2. klasse (2nd grade). I mounted the large 2 on foam adhesive and added some silver thread beneath it. As a final touch I added some silver glittery stars around the embellishment cluster.

Håber 1. skoledag i 2. klasse gik godt, Bertram!

 

I’ve added this card to Lawnscaping’s Back to School challenge.

    Vil bare sige at jeg holder godt øje med din blog og er vildt inspireret af dine super flotte og stilrene kort. Du er vel ikke blevet designer for lawn fawn eller papertrey ink? Hvis ikke burde du måske overveje det
