I will be your final blog for this hop, but be sure to check back all week, each blog will be posting many back to school ideas and everyone will be offering blog candy!

For my first project I made a Thank You card.

The card is a standard A2 size card.
Green Patter: 1 1/2" by 5 1/2"

Brown pattern paper at 3" by 5 1/4"
Brown card stock at 1" by 5 1/4"
Ribbon at the divider line and tied a knot.
Apple is cut three times from Doodle Charms at 3 1/2"

In green, red and brown.
Added stamp and pop dots!
I also added some additional pattern paper to the inside cut at 1" by 5 1/4

So simple, yet so cute!! I hope you enjoy this Thank You card! Be sure to check back for more projects including: Super Cool Paper Clip bookmarks, altered notebooks and A sweet candy box!

And now for the candy!

A fun mix of supplies:
Celebrate plastic tags
Chipboard Hearts
Baby Bubble Icons
Vacation Rub-ons
Love and Wedding Ribbon
Celebration Bubble Words
Pastel Fabric Flowers

  58. I already am a follower and for good reasons, too! I like the card that you made because it is simple and just perfect for back to school (or any teacher occasion). I am going to have to look again at my Doodlecharms cart because I didn't think about that apple on there. What a great idea to do your own piecing with it! I'll "bee" checking back tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  59. After posting this message I will be one of your followers too. I like your style and am looking forward to seeing your other paper crafts. I have Doodlecharms but never thought to use this die-cut in a card. You have inspired me to think a bit 'outside of the box'! Thanks for sharing....:O)
