Today is the first day of school for most of the schools here in Michigan. I've seen several "first day of school" pictures posted on Facebook, and I was glad to see that almost all of the kids looked excited to be starting their school year!
I wanted to share a card today that is inspired by this time of year, so I used bright, primary colors and my Writing Notes background stamp (p 124, Annual Catalog). I stamped 10 of these cards to be used all through the month of September.
I also wanted to match this card with some fun postage stamps that I bought recently:
These are called "Soda Fountain Favorites" and aren't they cute?! They really look more like decorative stickers than postage stamps. The soda bottle stamp that I used in the corner of my card is from a retired stamp set (Cycle Celebration), but there are similar images in the Mixed Drinks stamp set in our current Annual Catalog (p 153).
Other items used in this card:
- ink - Pacific Point (p 171, Annual Catalog)
- paper - Brights designer series paper stack (p 174, Annual Catalog)
- cardstock - Pacific Point, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White (p. 170-171)
- accessories - Banners Framelits (p 193, Annual Catalog), Owl Builder Punch for the heart (p 188, Annual Catalog)
