It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! This week the lovely, Jaydee is our hostess. This week's them is "It's Hip to be Square!" I can't help but think about Huey Lewis when I look at the image! I adore square cards! I think they are so fun and different! We can't wait to see what you create!
Miss Addison starts first grade tomorrow and I made a card for her to give to one of her teachers. I love to make school themed cards. I guess after 27 years of teaching, I still think I have to get ready for another school year. LOL!
I am also entering my card in Friday Mashup Challenge. Their challenge is also make a square card.
My card base is Daffodil Delight (5 X 5). The next layer is Real Red (4 3/4 X 4 3/4). I used the fabulous Doddlebug-Back to School 6 X 6 paper pack for the patterned papers. The sentiment was stamped on black card stock in Versa Mark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I used a sponge dauber with white ink to give it the chalkboard effect. I used the Apothecary Framelits to cut out the sentiment.
A yellow ribbon was wrapped around the layers. I added two real red buttons and used white Baker's twine for the bows. An arrow paper clip was added for fun. All teacher's need paper clips! Right?
