News first, or card first? Card first or news first? *grin*
hee hee. I've been waiting awhile to share that I've joined the lawn fawn design team! woot! I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Kelly Marie and the rest of the very talented group. (I'm trying to play it cool here, kids, but I am pretty sure I've died and gone straight to crafty heaven.)
We're sharing some valentine's day inspiration this week, and I thought I'd use a few non-valentine sets to create this ivy league-inspired card.
I started out with a kraft base, and stamped the notebook image (from "schoolhouse backdrops") in white ink. Next, I stamped the library card image onto white cardstock and created a custom sentiment (using "smitty's ABCs").
I then created a pocket for the library card out of red cardstock, and stamped the apple from "silly valentine" and the leafy images from "blissful botanicals" around it (or, around him? the apple has a face, so I think it should be a "him." or "her." whatever.)
For fun, I stamped the elements first in versamark ink, and then shadow-stamped them again in a darker ink. Just a little something extra.
Hope you like my card!
