This week over at BBTB2 our lovely Brenda chose a theme of Back To School for us. Over here in the UK the children/college students start back at the beginning of next week. Don't get me wrong it's lovely to have them home for the Summer but it's always nice to get back into a normal routine when they go back! :)
My card this week is very quick and simple, I used an apple from Give A Hoot Cricut Cartridge and the Back 2 School phrase is from Designers Calender Cartridge. My card is a shaped card measuring about 4" high by 5" and is a shaped card created by welding 2 apple shadows (one flipped) using Design Studio and white card. I cut another white shadow and adhered to my base card followed by a black layer, leaf layer in green and apple layer in red/white polka dot. All layers are pop dotted for some dimension. Back to School was cut shadow in black and base in white. I must admit I did trim off the end of the 2 as it crossed through the letter L of school and looked to me like it said Back to Schoot! so the tail end of the 2 just had to go! Finally the part that always takes me the longest, I love ribbon and probably have enough to open a shop but tying a bow takes me forever it took me about 20 minutes to get this one looking anywhere near presentable!
Please visit BBTB2 and check out the gorgeous Back to School projects The DT have created and we would love to see your take on our challenge this week too!
Have a great week all
