Design It Monday ~ {A Gold Star!}

Hi there friends! Do you remember learning to write your letters in school? Working hard on that practice page, thinking you had made perfect letters only to have your teacher make red marks on your paper!! That thought inspired my card today featuring the School Days Stamp Set. But this time the student earned a gold star!I die cut two notebook pages. One from decorative paper and one cardstock. The dashed border from the new School Days Stamp Set made the lines on my paper. Using a Tombo marker, I did some selective inking on the letters to create my “practice page”. I layered these on an alphabet embossed panel decorated with a bit of patterned paper.

This student did a great job as you can see from the sentiment! I popped this up with a foam dot and backed it with the star banner from the This Moment Stamp Set. A little twine and a gold star gave this card the zip it needed.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day!
