Hello! it is definitely back to school time; there's a bit of fall in the air, football has started, the school bus just passed by and I have to leave a little early for work to drive through school zones. I made this card for my nephew, he is starting his junior year. The school colors at his school, and my alma mater, are Black and Gold. I love the Emo line of stamps from Simply Betty Stamps because they are perfect for teens, especially teen boys. Cole is a pretty great kid and would never say anything negative about a card I have made for him, but it usually is a struggle to find something that isn't to juvenile or too generic. This is also my entry for the Simply Betty Get to School Challenge. I used a Notebook paper embossing folder for The Paper Studio, a border punch from EK Success, some brads and stickers from my stash and I colored everything with Copics.
Last year for Christmas my niece wanted a stamping kit from me as a gift. (Here is what I gave her.) Throughout the year I have been picking up some little additions as I find them. I found some cute little dollar stamps at Michael's last week and have put together a little box of goodies to mail to her. She is getting some Halloween stamps, a could of new colors of ink, some adhesive refills and some fall/Halloween card fronts and papers. I felt bad because Cole doesn't have a interest like that where I can pick up things here and there for him so I decided to make him a card and tuck in an Itunes gift card for him. I will get Zoie's card posted later, it is a Halloween one, using one of her new stamps.
Have a great Day!
