It's Thursday which means another Cute Card Thursday! Today the theme was Back to School and while I have no little ones going back to school - in fact we homeschool so we don't ever have *quite* the back-to-school experience, I really enjoyed coming up with an idea for this card.
I decided to create a chalkboard look. I have that adorable alphabet embossing folder and it, while a typewriter font, made me think of a chalkboard full of letters. So I used chalk tape from Fancy Pants and distressed it with some gesso. Once dry I ran it through my Big Shot to emboss it and then added some white Stazon Ink very lightly over it to bring out the letters more.
From there I pulled school colors and my notebook lined washi to create the card. It is a simple card, but think it is fun and at some point I'll have to pass it on to one of my girls!
Next week will be my final week over at Cute Card Thursday, so make sure you check it out!
