If you remember from this post I'm a little scarce on the "back to school" products but I managed to drum up a little something thanks to a few Hero Arts stamps :)
I started by stamping the ABC border for Calico borders and using my copics to color them. I fussy cut the whole border out because originally I was going to overlap the border onto the yellow strip but it didn't work out that way. Sometimes your cards surprise you. In my case it's like always ha! After I adhered the border flat I added the strip of yellow trimmed on an angle then stamped my sentiment. I added just a line of twine to tie in the blue from the border.
The apple was colored the same way as my flower from yesterday. You can see the tutorial here. I popped the apple up on dimensional adhesive and coated it in glossy accents. Here's a close up
I am seriously helpless to use this apple without adding glossy accents. Apparently all apples should be super shiny in my crafty world :)
I'm actually pretty happy with the way this card came out. Kelly: 2 Back to School: 0. It's nice to win hehehe! Thanks for visiting :)
