Well, I am a former teacher and my husband is a current teacher. That means we have LOTS of pencils and paperclips around our house. LOTS. As in...you cannot enter a room without running into such things. Just say'n. SO...I decided to put those things to use for my card today!
EEEK! This card was SO STINKING MUCH FUN TO CREATE!!!
I began by creating my own patterned paper for my card. I hand drew the blue and red lines to create notebook paper using PrismaColor colored pencils. I punched the edge with an EK Success punch to get the fun notebook look. This is mounted on a grey cardstock base. The title, well, that, my friends, is a very special SNEAK PEAK at some new alphabet stamps soon to be released by The Alley Way Stamps! The font was just perfect for the theme of my card! I love it!
The star is scribble sketched with a PrismaColor graphite pencil and then a fun stripey paperclip is added to the corner! YAY!
And then there are the pencils! Yup! They are each cut to the exact same size and then lined up on the card. I used a crazy super sticky tape made by Scotch to adhere them. I sharpened the one and flipped it the opposite direction from the others and then tied with with a bit of fabulous baker's twine from May Arts.
I hope you love this card as much as I do! I really feel like it is totally me and I had SUCH a blast creating it! The Hubbums was a great help on this one, too!!! I love that he has supported me so much through this! He's pretty much awesome. Just say'n. You will find the widget to vote at the top and bottom of this post as well as in the sidebar.
