It is that time of year when the new academic begins. I created this card to send to my grandson and for some of my teacher friends. I used many different pieces for the die cuts, paper and glittery accents. To create the notepaper, I glued lined loose leaf paper to a piece of card stock and then die cut this using a notepad die cut. The background paper are rulers so I thought that would be appropriate to use. The pencil is an old one from Whippersnappers. I die cut the A+, stamped the sentiment on the bottom and added dotted lines to connect to the sentiment. I added ‘have an A+ year in school’ to the inside. I love how all the pieces came together. A tiny gold star finishes the layout!
