Back-to-School Cards

We've got some fabulous cards to share with you - great for welcoming those teachers back!

It's that time for back to school!  I decided to make a couple of cards to give to teacher's to say "hello" to the new school year.  They are also perfect for male teachers because we all know how difficult it is to create masculine cards!  All of the patterned papers I used were from the Perfect Vacation collection.  These cards are perfect for using up all of your scrap pieces!

I cut various stripes of patterned paper and layered them onto the white card base.  I then tied some twine around the card and added the bow and mini clothespin.

I die cut the "hello" word using a Simon Says Stamp die.  I then placed that into the mini clothespin.

I added a couple of clear rhinestones with the I-Rock.  The cork stars also added a fun touch to the card!

My second card is also perfect for using up your scraps!

I cut up the pieces of patterned paper and layered them onto my card base.  I then tied some twine around the front with the mini clothespin.

The hello die cut is the same one I used on my first card.  I added the buttons from the Perfect Vacation collection and some of the I-Rock Gems.

Fabulous pair of cards Tracy!!!
Great papers & overlapping strip designs, you're right, perfect for masculine cards and for using up scraps. I ALWAYS love a splash of sparkle too :)

Very pretty card. Great that you can use up lots of scraps to make it. Scraps seem to replicate in the dark and I never run out.
thanks for sharing a wonderful idea.
