Captain’s Challenge

Well, I got ‘er done! Greg’s challenge this week was a fun one!

As you may be able to tell, this was made with “school on the brain” as we just started this week. I grabbed my three favourite colours when making school themed projects – Ballet Blue, Real Red and Summer Sun. I just love the combination!

I started with the panel part of the card and stamped letters from Big Deal Alphabet and cut them out. I put them onto some Whisper White cardstock and backed it in Real Red. I punched out a round tab in Real Red and stamped the thank you from Vases in Vogue and adhered to the panel with some brads. I used my markers to colour the star from Perfect Presentation and cut it out. I added it to the panel with a dimensional.

Now what to do for that back panel? Make a ruler! Now, this is not designer paper or patterned paper. No. This is the bottom of the grid paper from Stampin’ Up! Yes, thats right! I cut it and sponged it with More Mustard and Creamy Caramel to get that wood look. Got the idea from Convention last year – great one, huh?

Lastly, I did a line of paper piercing under the adhered large panel.

Thanks Greg for the inspiration!
