School Days

Ok, this card is a bit different from my "usual" style - BTW, what is your usual style? I wanted to use my new Back to School set, it is by My Favorite Things and is the featured stamp in the July box from Paper Pretties.

So I made the card that Christie designed (which I'll so you later) and then I made this card. I'm not sure about it - should I not admit that?? Feel free to tell me what would work better, what it needs, etc. We're all here to help and encourage each other, right?? :)

I used my Small Tag Punch from SU to create the window. The DP (which was a "Suggested Add-on from Paper Pretties) I thought loosely resembled siding on a red schoolhouse. I added the Chocolate Chip scalloped border for a "roof." This is a tri-fold card that I sort of made up - at least I think so, but I didn't look for others. As you can see from the second picture, the inside bottom flap has the image panel mounted on it. I think I'll try this again working on a closure . . . although I sort of like the paperclip closure in this instance, kind of goes with the "back to school" theme. On the inside I just hand drew a bookshelf so that I could put a few things on it - now you see how much of an artist I am NOT!! :)

I actually don't think it's that bad, it just needs a few touches, right? Have a great day everyone!


  1. I like the card...I think it's very cool! Did you fold the dp to give it more texture/lift?? I really like that part! I don't think I can offer any suggestions cuz I like it the way it is!!


  2. I love this card!!! It's very different with the tag punch rather than just sqaure, I'm liking it!!

  3. I think they are both perfect and wouldn't change a thing! That window out of the small tag punch is just wonderful!

  4. Very, very cute! I love how you used the tag punch!

  5. I love them just the way they are (a lot of help I am, huh?) Wonderful cards, Julie!!

  6. I like it the way it is - your window is so clever! So perfect for peeking into a classroom!

  7. Great cards. I love the window and the little backpack on the tag.

  8. I don't think your card needs anything...I think it is cool and original. Looks great! (I picked up on the red brick building right away!)

  9. What a lovely card julie 'back too school'!!!!!!
    so beautiful and so cute!!!!!

  10. Great card, Julie! I especially like the tag punch used to make the windows!! Thanks for sharing!

  11. This card is AMAZING!!! Not sure what you don't like about it. As a teacher I would love one of my students to give me this. :) YOU rock!!! Love the tag punch window...very clever!

  12. hey girl...loved the card...I'm one of thosed that think the headless teacher is spooky, but you handled it just right!!!!

    My suggestion for the window...I think it needs a frame/border of some sort.

    Very neat idea.
