Both of these feature Ella Puddle Jumper.
But I had to make another card as well, so here it is.....
I couldn't leave the boys out, so I pulled out Davey Puddle Jumper and made a Back to School card for my youngest son Trevor. For this card I followed the sketch over at Die Cuts R Us.
Surprisingly the layout is very similar to the previous card. I used paper from the Summer Dream collection and instead of adding ribbon or another pattern paper across the center, I used plain cardstock punched with a border punch and then embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. When I saw that ruler folder in the store I thought it would be perfect for school themed projects and just had to have it. I changed the direction of the circles (well buttons in my case) and put them across the bottom instead of up the side (hope that's ok). I came across these buttons going through some of my older supplies (the stuff I bought when I was "collecting" a few years ago) and the color was perfect for this paper. They came pre-threaded and as a bonus already had adhesive on the back ~ how easy was that!?! The little note he is holding says "Have FUN in 1st grade ♥ Mom"
I know, I know, a "Back to School card" when the kids started last week....Well what can I say, they are a bit late this year. As you can tell from my lack of posts last month, I didn't have a lot of time to spend in the Craft room, so while the intention was there, the time to do so just wasn't. But, since I make them for my kids every year, better late than never!
